Hard lessons to live by.

Lesson 1. Draw every day.
I find this lesson comes up over and over and over again. And despite any excuse I can come up with regarding my job, my family, my regular studies can not hold a candle to the truth that when I do not draw, the number of days in between make it incredibly difficult to get back into the groove. Travelling for a wedding? Guests from out of town? Eleven-hour workday with 1.5 hr commute? No excuse. Get creative. 15 mins to draw before passing out is enough to retain a little bit of sharpness. How about on the train? I'd rather sleep, but I could also use this time for drawing.

And it will only benefit in the long run.
