Today was one of those days where I felt a bit...unsettled. There was no obvious root cause, and (knock on wood) there's nothing too earth-shattering occurring in my life right now. All in all, compared to what I went through a few years back (cancer diagnosis combined with economic chaos), things are downright peachy on this end. But as of late, I've felt this internal nagging to 'tighten things up'.
I should recognize that I usually get this feeling when the seasons change. This is especially true as we transition from August (everyone is either on vacation or mentally checked out) to September (back to school, back to work).
So, as I'm sketching this morning, the mantra 'GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER' entered my brain. The sketch was done quickly. I spent the rest of the day GMST (Getting My Shit Together®) and then revisited it tonight with this tracing in Illustrator.
