If my imagination is correct, a giant mutant radioactive squirrel escaped from a lab in Toronto this morning…
Please be safe everyone.
Although I wear my nerd/geek badges with pride, I’ve never had the good fortune to play Magic: The Gathering.
But I’ve always loved the artwork.
I was inspired to create this in response to someone’s post on twitter.
This style feels very Pictures In Boxes to me here. Or maybe that’s just what it looks like when you freehand everything (no straight lines).
Basically, the new game involves combining or including 3 audience suggestions in a drawing.
So this is not the result of the game. It’s just an attempt at drawing a Fennec Fox. :)
Still here — just loopy from a combination of wildfire evacuations, high temperatures, tooth extractions, pain killers, antibiotics, a change in dietary habits, and lack of restful sleep.
Today is when body fatigue kicked in a bit — But I’m at least mentally sharper now that I’m not taking prescription pain meds.
To prove how mentally sharp I am today, here’s a self-portrait.
For whatever reason, it’s taking me longer to recover from my recent dental work than I’d anticipated. I’ve been pretty drained & weak since last Saturday (my dental work was on Thursday) — despite sleeping 10 hours for the past 2 nights.
Fatigue isn’t a listed side affect of the antibiotics I’m taking, so I’m not sure what it’s a result of.
In any case, I haven’t been terribly productive. And although I’d like to be, but my body has other plans for now.
I can still doodle though.
I feel 25% better than yesterday. (Which means I am now at 77%).
To reflect feeling better, I put 22% more effort into today’s doodle…
Although I completely ruined what I was going for (by accident) midway through. And this temporarily reduced my morale by about 4%.
But then I decided to see if I could save it (and learn from my mistake)… and as a result, I learned 14% more than I would have if I hadn’t made any mistakes.
This, in turn, made me 5% more excited than I would have been had I not made the mistakes.
