The cutoff.

It was bound to happen. I was running on such heavy emotion for about two solid months, drawing and writing every day, pouring as much of it out as I could.

I hit a wall.

It's all right. Except for the part where my Sketchbook Project needs to be postmarked by the 31st and I haven't gotten far past the mid-point (somehow, I'm not feeling discouraged). I've done a lot this month, dragging myself through the mud, while maintaining my life and projects. I'm not going to beat myself up for feeling utterly drained the last few days. I'm actually doing a good job of not beating myself up at all lately. Turns out it's fairly simple, and the trick is to keep telling yourself, I am a human being and I am doing the best that I can.

2. View from the train on my commute to work.
3. The first real snowfall of the year, as I was walking home.
4. Christmas eve tattoo. I don't think I've posted this here yet. One more session to go, for the color.
