A Message To My Ego

It's been way too long since I've drawn anything. I have a damaged disk in my neck that has been acting up to the point of The Big Surgery Conversation, and I haven't really been able to use my left arm for the last couple of weeks. The good news is that it seems to be healing. Come on, baby! That, plus a freelance agency job, have been wreaking havoc on my body, mind, and time. But here's a sketch I did last night, not as a note to the world (although I often want to just yell this from the window of my car, especially since I live in LA), but more as a message to my ego. Relax, ego. Get over yourself. You're not that important. I think life is probably a lot easier, and more pleasant, when I keep this in mind.
