Drawing is a form of meditation for me. I usually spend about one hour per sketch, usually less, depending on the complexity of the subject matter. Today I only had ten minutes to "meditate." I thought about skipping it altogether, and posting something I had already drawn. But meditation makes me feel better, and I was already feeling kinda crummy. Very little sleep the night before, a morning spent on the phone, and an afternoon devoted to chores added up to a day spent the way I hadn't planned on. But these things happen. Just now I came across a photo of a baby ferret staring at me as if to say "What are you waiting for? Just do it." So here you have the 10-minute ferret. It's not perfect; none of my drawings are. You can see the lines I didn't erase, the graphite smudges I didn't Photoshop out, and the quick strokes of my pencil. But perfection is not the point. The point is: just do it. Every single day.
