A Matter of Honor
The thing about promising yourself that you'll draw every day is that after a pretty short time, you just don't want to break that commitment. A weak effort isn't as good as a strong effort, of course, but it's better than no effort. No effort becomes intolerable.
I can already see how this has put me in a frame of mind where I'm simply going to make drawing time each and every day. Or, more likely during the week, in the evening.
Tonight I did work-work until 10. I had a pretty good excuse to let myself off the hook. Instead I drew myself looking like I was trying to imitate R. Crumb, but failing. Doesn't matter. I'm proud that I drew anything.
