Final Approach

Y'know...I keep waiting for you to put up something ugly. I don't think it'll ever happen.

Where the hell do you get this stuff? It's like a torrent of great drawings!

Thanks Warren.

Where? Lot of possible answers but my short version is:

1. It's play. I purposely don't worry about being "onstage", and just try stuff. Being playful-on-paper. Children do this, they have a lot of FUN drawing, until they get older and learn to hate it because they start judging it too much and start fretting about whether or not anyone will like it. So I have resolved to draw just EXACTLY what I want to in these blog-drawings, not caring at all if anyone "approves"...or a client "approves". It is so freeing to draw for fun and not worry about this dreaded "approval"!!

2.That, and following stuff where it might lead you, instead of trying to lead it too much and overthinking it. Again, children do this. Too often adults try to "force" a bad idea.

3. And also, trying multiple variations of things until something starts to click, instead of trying something completely new every time. Again, guess what? Children do this too...

You might not have actually wanted an answer, but there it is anyway!
