Highly Evolved 8-Year-Old

May 27th, 2010

Sometimes I feel distinctly OVEREDUCATED. I tell students that they should become masters of their chosen medium, and that is true if you’re to be able to survive as a working illustrator. However, as I recently said to Frank, my sincerest wish is to draw like a highly evolved 8-year-old. Drawing from a purer, more instinctual place, not one of virtuosic control.
