A perfectly good picture.

ImageYou know when you have a drawing that’s perfectly good. And you, silly person, want to make it great! So you play and you play and you add this and that until… aw, fuck.

This drawing was perfectly good and then I screwed up her eyes by adding too much black ink. So, to “fix it” (read: alter it irreparably by logic-defyingly adding MORE shit), I gave her some funky Steampunk-style goggles and a Rambo headband.

While this pastel/ quill and ink drawing isn’t FANTASTIC or GREAT, I think it represents a cool idea that wouldn’t have come about without taking a perfectly good drawing and screwing it up.

I can go back, pick out the bits I like, get rid of the bits that don’t work and maybe make a drawing that’s a lot more interesting than the perfectly good original.

Sometimes imperfect it better!
