Feels like it's been a while...













Here are a few life drawings from today.

I'm definetly feeling scatterbrained right now so sorry that I haven't updated as often as I normally do.

I'm also feeling not too proud of my life drawing. I feel like I should be a lot further than I am and I guess that has a lot to do with a turbulent, stressful year.

Well, I guess the year ain't over yet...
