That’s not a gun, that’s your finger.
My awesome friend Cody James made this, and though the guy narrating it sounds like he has a cold (I can make fun of him because he’s me), her words and images made my line-reading work, y’all.
On Facebook last night, Cody (who wrote Babylon and The Dead Beat, both of which are fantastic) brought up the concept of creating for yourself, not for everyone else. It’s an idea I’ve championed for a while, but there’s a good reminder there. You have to be true to your own ideas and art first and foremost, and you have to know if you’re a) willing to change it to broaden its appeal, or b) you’re happy with it as it is.
That second part is the tricky one. How do you know when something is done? When you’ve done what you wanted to do with it? I can’t offer any answers there, but perhaps some of you can.
And also, go check out Cody’s stuff. She’s all sorts of great.
