I don’t ever drink. It diminishes my ability to ride my bicycle the next day, it diminishes my drive to create artwork, and generally, it makes me feel like shit. However… On this particular night, being over worked and over trained, and looking forward to a relatively light week starting tomorrow… I figured what the hell, and I enjoyed some (a lot, for me) beer. I started working on this drawing. After smudging around some basic shapes and outlines, eating dinner and sobering up a bit, I noticed how much it sucked, so I spent a few more hours cleaning it up, getting more sober and clear as I went. I don’t drink. This time however, it wasn’t such a bad idea.
