I want to be a Free Spirit

14Feb2004 [myth]

Everyday Matters has some amazing artwork, and some really profound moments in the entries. This little entry's on when we take artwork too far - trying to fix up the work, rather than knowing when to stop. It really struck me though as that was often my problem with art in high school... I'd get finished too early in the term and have to keep working - but everything goes downhill once that happens.

Interesting too, cos I see the same problem in all sorts of things - film, advertising, novels... In many of those cases, the editor should have been able to tell the creator to stop. I think that's the real job of any editor.
