Few things drive me crazy like this! My husband is reading me the book Redwall, which he loved in school and which I never got around to reading. It’s sort of a ridiculous book and I love how all the evil rats in the book are Evil with a capital E simply because they’re rats, and they all have silly Evil names like Bloodclaw and Bonecrunch. I drew my own addition to the Evil lineup, and I love this drawing more than anything else I’ve drawn in probably the past few months. Why does this drive me crazy, you ask? Because this was done thoughtlessly, with minimal effort, in five minutes. This is the epitome of why most illustrators bemoan the difficulty of “keeping it loose”. I know my best drawings seem to happen when I don’t really care about them. Argh!
