Murder Your Darlings

The dean of Thomas Moore College once told us that the secret to good writing is to "Murder your darlings."  

I was going to entitle this brief post Selling your Soul.

I was thinking that putting a drawing into a frame, and then taking it somewhere, putting it someplace, makes it appear to be art.  Simply because someone bothered to say it was, by framing it.

These are one dollar frames from The Dollar Tree.  Presto, Change-o. 

Who buys art?  

I was thinking of trying to find out.

weeeeeeelllll...a lot of this productivity is because I am S.C.A.R.E.D. of my own book!!!! gahhhhhhhhhhhh, I don't know what's wrong with me. I still force myself to do pages each week, but now I'm in so far, I am terrified of screwing it up. Ridiculous. Terrible. Crippling. But it's still going. HOwever...a LOT of what you see from the art factory is the procrastination/rationalization at work. egad.
you? whatcha work'en on now
