I'm doing my damnedest to get up at 5am every weekday now and today it worked awesome. Up at 5 and working on stuff that needs working on ... but less than a half hour later my boys start waking up ... by 5:50 they were up and not going back to bed. It all went down hill from there.
But I did what I could and salvaged as much time as I could find and actually got a decent amount of work done. I am now back on track and fully immersing myself in drawing and painting. And the little doodle books I carry around with me are letting me really come to terms with my style, and a sample you can see below.
