Rollercoastering skills

Im a bit frustrated with a couple of my drawings this last week.  Every once in a while I would make a hidious tangle of clumsy lines which could not be called a drawing.  It seemed that I would just go into gestural fits/siezures whilst holding onto a stub of conte.  Cathartic perhaps, but ugly definitely.  Here's the evidence from my awesome evidence-taker.

This is a mess


Thankfully there were some highlights for the week.  I was able to make a couple nice drawings when I calmed down, focused on structure, slowed down, and reduced the number of lines I used.
