Doodled this through a (yet another, sorry) day of frustration…

Not getting anywhere at the moment. So much to do and yet every step seems mired in clay and up a slippery slope to boot. Tricksome. I’m suffering from serious data overwhelm at the moment and the right course of action is  a scary one (ask to reduce hours which may see the recipient of the news reducing them to 0. Still mulling over that one…)

Did draw/doodle/paint this in Photoshop on a very dodgy college Dell PC. It struggled but tbh I wasn’t after the speed of processing so much (which was good, come to that), just pressed a button, did some work, pressed another button, did some more work and then whaled into what was left during my lunch hour and after work itself. Not 100% finished (I intend to fade the hat out, make the mouth less obvious etc but as a pic that came together with no plan nor initial outcome it’s alright… My favourite self portrait and, though it hasn’t had many comments on the forum I post work on or on Flickr – hint – the comments were nice and Adobe tweeted that they liked it). Hey ho. Only did the pic to keep myself sane, as a self portrait it probably shows how well that task is progressing…

More self centred moaning about work after this short break 🙂 ((I did have a very pleasant day off today helping my niece take her CV around shops now that she’s finished college and bought my daughter a teepee to boot so it’s not all bad. Completely forgot to pick up Tap magazine though, but as a day it was theraputic…))
