Draw Wars . . . the prequel.

Here's a preamble of sorts to yesterday's post 
(I only came across it last night):

I'd never thought of adding labels 
to explain my drawings . . . 
would they help?

Something like, "This is a lady.  Her head is a teapot.  Her arms are really long.  Because she's a teapot.  Get it?  I have absolutely no idea why she's pukey green."

Hmmm -- I don't know . . . only more confusing?! 
(Maybe I'd better just keep working on learning to draw.) 

Hope you're 
well on your way 
to a terrific Tuesday!

LOL! I need that cartoon to hang in my cubicle, hole, desk area--whatever at work. Sales reps would appreciate it so much. They bring me orders for tee shirt art that looks very much like that. " Bobcat mascot head; big teeth, blood dripping from fangs, mean eyes, name of school here, but outline in black..."

As long as we're communicating without the need for Vulcan Mind Meld--I'm happy.

And even if the teapot is a bit green, she has wonderfully healthy pink cheeks.

LOL!!!!!!!!!! You don't need labels, Susan! I think your art is brilliant!

I firmly believe that writers should not explicate their own work and neither should visual artists. Your work is just fine without the labels. It makes me happy. Thanks.

One of my favorite quotes says, "If a poem can be improved by its author's explanations, it never should have been published."

-- Archibald McLeish

I agree with you, Karen!
