Bedtime for Bonzos

My adventures this evening (and every evening) after coming home from a late day at work.

This first one is titled "Everyday Goal," captioned, "I will draw something excellent so super-fast (insert list of the other 10 things I additionally thought I could squeeze in) and then go to sleep at 9:30 so I can wake up early to work out and get to work early!!"
Look at that naive hope glittering in my disembodied cartoon eyes:

As the evening goes on, my every attempt is met with being out of practice and being too impatient to count stupid scribbles (attempted figure drawings) as decent practice.
And thus my Spirit Animal turns into a mean babushka and refuses to give in so easily, pushing other "unimportant" things like sleep and food aside so it can achieve perfection and reach Drawing Nirvana, NO MATTER THE COST!!

After several more failed attempts at doing things as simple as copying an animation character sketch, my babushka Spirit Animal dies another day (did you see what I did there?) and the rest of me caves and realizes how funny it was that I thought I could go to bed at 9:30 and make loverly drawings.

Ah, well...
Try, try again tomorrow.
