Janet's good suggestion: give the drawings a title.
To paraphrase Norman Mailer, a professional is able to do good work on a bad day. This is an idea that improved.
I finished filling up the first notebook of drawings since restarting the journal on August 30. I had stopped my daily in 2012.

I have always loved signage, before I'd heard of Walker Evans, though any signage photo must stand in his enormous shadow. And before I heard of Christopher Wool. But with the pictorial element added to the text/letters, I see I a path to I, me, mine (cf. George Harrison). It's fun and it feels okay, the stakes are low to zero, I'm enjoying the path so far, however long it might last. And I drew it today.
