The gentleman is always properly dressed

And then there are days like today

The studio was a bust today. For some reason, even the basics were escaping me despite my best efforts. I couldn't center, I couldn't pull, and at one point, I wedged a rubber band into 5 lbs of clay.

Sometimes, it's really hard not to get discouraged. Self-destruction can set in, and I'll start wondering if there really is a point to my doing this. I'll get over it, but this gets rough.
