This thought web thing took about 10-15 minutes to complete, so I just don’t buy the excuse that it’s too difficult or time-consuming. If you don’t like playing with ideas, perhaps you shouldn’t pursue illustration.

I was actually pretty psyched about the prospect of doing a theoretical Frankenstein cover by the end of the exercise!
