Color is a plastic means of creating intervals… color harmonics produced by special relationships, or tensions. We differentiate now between formal tensions and color tensions, just as we differentiate in music between counterpoint and harmony.

It’s Not My Favorite Thing

Thing #32 is another drawing for The Christmas Carol Murders by Christopher Lord.

It is not my favorite thing.

Thing #32

I have learned that when you are doing “work for hire,” you have to let go of some of your own ideas.  And that’s okay.  Christopher loves the drawing (and I adore Christopher) and that is all that matters.

You know, while I’m here, I might as well get the last “not my favorite” drawing out of the way, too.

Thing #33

I don’t think I need to tell you why these aren’t my favorite drawings (or that I am being kind by describing them that way). I prefer instead to just move on.  So, sometime in the next few days, I’ll post the first of several maps — which IS one of my favorites.
