Not much to say. I decided that it was better to be making pictures that I wasn't all that excited about than making nothing at all. Someone reminded me a couple days ago that things that are worth doing are worth doing badly, which, actually, sounds pretty bad, but it gets me thinking about students and writing and how, as someone said (and I wish I remembered whom) that if young people knew what crap they were writing, they wouldn't write at all, but if you're ever going to get anywhere, you sure as hell better be doing it.
So while I may be lacking in inspiration and ideas, I am making a number of small portraitish drawings, and for the record, I took all the reference photos myself. One of my goals is to get all my reference material myself.
