I don't always come up with results that have that perfect alchemy that I'd want all my drawings to have, but sometimes I'm sufficiently interested by the results to blog them anyway... I probably shouldn't. I should probably only blog 100% safe completed masterpieces once every six years.
Perhaps with some of these I'm fighting to put some things together that haven't quite come together, but they will eventually.
However it shouldn't always have to be a struggle, so maybe I should embed myself in a comfort zone next time.
