We went to Koko's Bakery in Chinatown yesterday after drawing in Wade Oval, and I saw what was a very funny sign above the sweet and savory bun case. It said, "Please select your bun carefully." As if either there was just reckless bun selection going on, or as if it was the scene from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade where they were trying to figure out which goblet was the Holy Grail. No need to be too selective, as all the buns are really good.

So, I wanted to do a drawing today, but my hand just wasn't doing well. I had a couple days where it seemed to feel better and stronger, but today it was very uncomfortable again. But, I wanted to put something in the sketchbook, so I did this ink thing of Tom Petty.

This is a little dark, because I had to take a photo of it. All of a sudden, my scanner decided that it would just stop working. I've tried reinstalling the driver 4 times now, so I think that something may actually be wrong with it.
Here is a little sketch I did earlier today. My line work is a bit shaky, as my hand still isn't working, but I really missed doing little sketches in my Moleskine. I hadn't done one in there for almost 2 months. I want to do more, and I will probably just get used to my hand not working entirely.

Wanted to give you an update on my hand. I saw a neurologisit today that said, "I'd have to be a complete moron not to be able to diagnosis you."
It's ulnar nerve damage, and he said that the nerve should grow back on its own. I'm supposed to come back in 2 months if it doesn't feel better, or sooner if it gets worse. I'm also supposed to stop resting on my elbows.
I should be drawing again later this week. I have a few projects in mind that I want to have done before the end of the August. Plus, I had a wacky dream last night that I want to do a sketch of in my moleskine.
See you soon.

I did this, because I just liked the idea of the really super-artifical and vibrant color candies on top of the more natural-looking chocolate. What I hadn't anticipated, but worked out well, was the really reflective quality of the chocolate.
