I love your sketchiness: how you can bring out the likeness of someone with just casual gestures is wonderful, let alone the personality. Also I like that the most detail is on his eyes and smile, which draws your eye. The farther you get from the 'important' stuff, the more the detail fades out. I think the sharpness of the lines of his jaw (his right) are perhaps too dark; they draw my eye a little more than they should, but his eyes and smile are so nicely done that I get pulled back away from it. I hope to see more work from you: as tired as you've been, it doesn't seem to have hurt your drawing skill.
