Life during daytime

As of last week, after over a year of working Sunday to Thursday from 3:30 p.m. till midnight (and sometimes later), yours truly has moved to the day shift and now works Monday to Friday from 9 to 5 (and sometimes later). The new schedule has taken longer for me to get used to than I'd figured; for the first three days I was still going to sleep at 4 a.m. as had been my habit even though I now had to get up at 7 a.m., and as a result my efficiency at the studio during those days was, how shall I say, substandard. But I've been turning in earlier and earlier since then, and should be my usual chipper and alert self tomorrow.

My new work hours also allow me to attend life drawing sessions regularly. I took in the one at Basic Inquiry this afternoon, the first one I went to in several months and the first one I attended at that place. The selections below show how it went for me:

I've been cartooning in my sketchbook since my last post, of course, but nothing I've drawn since then seems much different from what I've put up here before, so I'll pass on showing any of it off. I have to shake off some old habits and do something really interesting before I pipe up here again. Some of my coworkers past and present are starting a comic book and I'll be attending their first meeting to see whether I can be of any help to them, and vice versa. If so, you'll hear more about it here soon.
