MANTRA 20

Filed under: Mantra — M Kitchen @ 10:04 am

Todd McFarlane quote:

“The reason you’re not very good at drawing… is that they say the brain will pick up from where you last left it in terms of that skill, so if you haven’t really drawn, tried to teach yourself drawing since you were in the fifth grade, it doesn’t matter that you are now 35 years old, your brain has only got caught up to a grade 5 level, and it never got any better than that. So you miraculously don’t go ‘oh you know what, I’ll stop now that I’m 10, I’ll not do this thing called art for 25 years, and now I can paint like Michelangelo’… it doesn’t work that way. It will then say; what was the last thing you remember, it goes backwards in time and it says; oh okay now, you have to then start applying yourself to catch up to basically your age at this point.” *

  2. Ahhhh. Good ol’ Todd Farlane McSpahn. You’ve gotta give him some credit for what he has done (which is a heck of a lot more than I have).
