What I'm working on tonight

Waited last minute to work on my most recent drawing again...I had all these detailed plans written out for a series I'm working on for drawing II but I'm throwing them all out the window tonight to free style a little bit and draw my favorite sculpture (like EVER).  I'm sure everyone is familiar with the Pieta by Michelangelo.  One of my many goals is to see this in person.  Well, I'm off to work on this.  I'll make sure to post my little interpretation of it when it's finished.

I knew I wasn't alone.

I was reading an old Playboy interview with Janeane Garofalo tonight and this quote made so much sense to me--I feel just the same.  She is so funny and honest.  

"I have self-loathing in that I am frequently disappointed in myself. I don’t work hard enough, don’t write enough, don’t donate enough to charity, don’t read enough. But I don’t have low self-esteem. I am a confident person. I don’t make bad choices in destructive relationships. I don’t abuse myself in a major way. I just grind my teeth. I have a bite plate, but unfortunately I can’t wear it. It covers the roof of my mouth and I can’t sleep in it. So I’ve wasted a lot of money on it, which causes more self-loathing, which makes me grind my teeth more. I just want to be a better person. I want to be funnier, I want to be smarter, I want to be healthier, I want to be nicer. But self-loathing drives me. I guess it’s a good thing. Better than being arrogant or being content to be a dick."
