say something



When I'm working on a project and I'm stuck for ideas, I'll sometimes just doodle a bunch of faces and hope one of them "speaks" to me or starts telling story in my brain. I usually have to go through four or five pages worth of characters before any ideas get sparked.

This is a page of non-talkers.

Wow - that's a pretty amazing process! I'm afraid I would draw them all with tape over their mouths after a crazy day at my office.

I see one other thing they have in common. I think they all have their hair cut at the beauty school.

No no no....I didn't say I needed mutes. I said I needed to find my MUSE.

Funny how this works, but I take a drive, I saw a pregnant tree near the hospital when I went in for pneumonia...I also read, a few lines of others work and !POW! it comes to me...I never ever finish a book in one sitting!

quite frankly, i think the world needs more non-talkers
or less talkers, or . . . you get the idea. too many stupid people talk, and too many stupider people listen.
