This week’s show is with fisher, writer, and painter James Prosek. As he says in his interview with Krista, “Creativity is my faith. That’s my way of stopping time. Making stuff with my hands, that tactile quality of even running a pencil across the paper… Making a mark on that paper is really important to me.”
Through my many years of obsession with drawing, comics and cartoons, I understand what he’s talking about. Making a mark on a page takes skill, concentration, and an observant eye. Even then, you can’t always render what you see adequately. So what to do? This hilarious post on art/design blog Aviary solves all your drawing problems.
