ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY

I saw Ward's Illustration Friday topic and thought it was perfectly representing how I feel at the moment.

Ever have one of those days where you just don't think you have it, that you'll EVER have it and that you're wasting yours and everyone else's time? I'm feeling a little of that now... I am working with a client that is chewing my last nerve. Mandy was horrified by my caricature of her and is still pissed at me. All the projects I WANT to be working are either on the back burner or are all together not happening. I haven't even felt like picking up my sketchbook lately. Where's the inspiration?

I know, I'm just having a pity-party and that means it's time for a trip to Borders!

I like your illustration for alone, it also seems to illustrate perfectly how you say you feel. I can relate, though in a strange way it's comforting to hear some one as good as you can feel the same way. Keep it up! This is one of my favorite blogs to visit :)
(and my boyfriend always seems disapointed at the portraits I do of him, unless I draw him as a piranha or something)

Jim, there aren't many blogs I visit on a regular basis, but this is one of them. Your art, humor and quality shine through. Keep thy chin up!

James, you're the bomb. And Borders has always been the best salve for these type of situations.

and sorry for getting you all depressed.....I promise I'll do a happier kindler illustration for IF next.

Hang in there. I regularly visit your blog even if I don't leave a comment. I love the illustrations you do, and your sense of humour that shows in them.

Sorry to hear you're having a blah day. When i have my blah days, it seems like I spend a ton of time surfing the web looking for inspiration, both new and long time favorites like your blog and website. Thanks for it!

Thanks SOOOOOO much guys for the wonderful boost. I am feeling much better these days. It's always an up and down thing you know? Thank goodness for Borders though!
Cheers...
