A Sketch A Day : Day 7

Wow. 2 days in a row. I’m on a roll in the bloggingsphere. hahaha yes, pun intended.

Err.. too lame, Bahijah. Too lame.

Anyway, here’s a sketch for day numero seite. Tried to draw Jack Nicholson smoking cigar and doing the circle smoke. I’m so bad at drawing hair. Of course.. again with the detailing and final touches. But then again I’m at the office and this is just a rough sketch (yupe… I make excuses) So pratice, pratice, pratice.

I know I should come up with better excuse and saying “I’ve been busy” just wont cut it anymore. It is just… well.. an extremely super lame excuse for me being lazy and bad at updating this space. But I’m sticking to it anyway.. so hey! I’ve been busy. I figured a lame excuse is much better than no excuse at all.

Contrary to the popular bloggers’ myth (after many months of not updating anything on their blogs), I for once, didn’t miss blogging. I lost interest the minute it feels like a chore and I dont like chores. I like hot shower, proper planning and sleep. I dont like chores as much as I dont like being told what to do and cockroaches. But I did most of my chores anyway because it is something that grown up do. Like laundry. Plus, I micro-blogged on the usual spots.

That is beside the point and this particular post took more than 2 months to materialized.

Anyway, hello.

So 2012 is ending in about 4 days, I’ve done paying my Zakat and most of my December bills which made me feel good about myself. It doesnt take much to lift up your spirit really. It’s these little things that did the trick. Like hot tea and a favorite book on a day you feel so alone. Little things.

And back to what I original plan to write, I made a pact to myself (or so-called resolution) and I plan to … no.. no.. not to become a better blogger, but to draw more. So I made it a little project that I called “A Sketch A Day” project (Oh How original!). I mainly sketch something, profile shot mainly(for now) at the office in between my free time. So far it has been 6 days. At least one sketch per day at the office and focusing on area that I’m lacking. Here I am, recording my progress from the very first try at art making to today.

Hopefully by the year 2014 approaches, I’m able to draw awesomely. Insyallah.

Till then,

Happy New Year.
