To worship the product and ignore its development leads to dilettantism and reaction. Art cannot result from sophisticated, frivolous, or superficial effects.

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.
