"We now know that 24 hours without sleep, or a week of sleeping four or five hours a night induces an impairment equivalent to a blood alcohol level of .1 percent…. We would never say, ‘This person is a great worker! He’s drunk all the time!’ yet we continue to celebrate people who sacrifice sleep for work."
Danielle Elliot @ The Atlantic: The Doctor Who Coaches Athletes on Sleep
I wonder if my junkie brain so eagerly and excitedly goes into unsleep-mode because it wants that certain derangement of the senses that sleeplessness brings. like speedy kids putting sugar in sodas, like abstaining alcoholics sugar-binging to replace the alcohol sugars in their system, it can feel like a kind of over-the-counter bootleg solution to the problem of having to live life not-fucked-up-all-the-time.
sure, it’s time and a feeling-space i can use, i can convert into work, but it’s a feeling i like.
i romanticize exhaustion. i worry about it. i have to put sleep on my to-do list and have been working for a very long time to think of it as a thing that needs done, rather than a bodily weakness to avoid (which was kinda s.o.p. since, y’know. forever). i have to treat sleep like work, like a part of the job, like a task, a box to Get Done and Check Off. Otherwise, like exercise, it goes undone.
half a thought, i dunno. i’ve not encountered any studies looking at sleep habits of the addict and the recovering, but as sleep and brain chemistry are so fundamentally related… well, maybe there’s more than one reason for all those midnight meetings out there.
no idea what this is but i like the idea of dueling tits

Xena sketches and picture via Sketch Dailies. I spent too much time coloring one of these haha orz. She’s too fun to draw, perhaps I’ll finish some of the others / do more if I have time.

I posted to my Taught By A Pro blog a new post about gaining conficence in your art. It even has a GLEN KEANE drawing to go with it, so its worth the click!
Yes! I needed that.
Can we talk about how Cap and Bucky have opposite masks?
Cap has mouth and eyes exposed, forehead covered. Bucky has mouth covered and eyes painted black, his forehead exposed.
What a lovely symmetry.
But the symbolism too. Cap’s is a helmet, protection, to keep him safe from physical harm. Bucky’s is a muzzle to keep him silent and anonymous and on a leash.
