Girl with glasses portrait illustration

So here's a pretty muted portrait this week. I got the source from @iamshwa on Instagram, this is his pic of @elliedefuk. I'm having a great time drawing portraits that aren't from moviestills.

Incidentally, I'm about five or six weeks ahead of where I need to be in order to maintain a weekly blog update. Back in the day I would often scramble manically to get something finished before midnight, but now I'm trying to remember the order in which I finished things for posting. 

It's almost entirely down to the fact that I have (virtually) quit drinking while I work. Which is really annoying. Because I love drinking while I work. It's got nothing to do with the fact that the work suffers while I'm wasted (it's often much better) it's just that I can't work when I'm hungover. Those wasted days add up. And the older I get the longer those wasted days last. I guess it's also better for my health - but that's nowhere near as important.

Which isn't to say I'm going to start doing anything other than stockpile this backlog of drawings. I have nowhere near enough confidence in my ability to lay off the sauce for that.
