I'm not sure where this falls along the continuum between "homage to Kate Beaton's Fat Pony" and "blatant rip-off of Kate Beaton's Fat Pony." Crucial differences are: longer legs? Tongue firmly hidden in mouth; slightly melted candlestick-like forehead protrusion.

Here's the re-do of yesterday's terrible lettering. The lettering is still awkward, but it doesn't have much of a choice given what I'm forcing it to work around. It's purposively awkward, a word I just made up to mean having purpose. I could be making up a word that actually exists with a slightly different arrangement of letters (purportedly? probiotically?) but my brain thinks it's being funny and hiding things from me now. Welcome to middle age.
This makes me want to illustrate all the yoga sutras. If I start now, I'll only be 150 years old when I'm done, but I'll have achieved the twin purposes of attaining enlightenment and giving my husband a series of rage aneurysms because I should be rewriting my novel instead of trying to draw skinny people doing preposterous things.
I took that real age test today and it said I was ten years younger than I am, so if I can keep going at this rate, when I'm 150 I'll only look 140.
Thanks to Gregor Maehle for his modeling and sutra-explicating skills.
Apparently I needed to nap most of the afternoon, after a morning of watching an X-Men movie and forcing Jackson to overcome his fear of Beetlejuice ("Who is Michael Keaton again? But which janitor on 30 Rock?"). Consequently, I have not finished the drawing for today, which was supposed to be something yoga related. I chose the shortest yoga sutra I could find, did a terrible job lettering it, and then took an out-of-focus photo of it. Yeah, I'm calling a re-do for tomorrow, I'm taking that extra hour of tomorrow and calling it today.
