"Only art can make the future love you, and that is what art is about: attraction at a distance, seduction from the past, inveiglement from beyond the grave. Art is a plea to love me when I’m gone. And yet, I thought to myself, who could love what I do? Who could possibly love me for this?" -Supervert

By all means break the rules, and break them beautifully, deliberately and well. That is one of the ends for which they exist.
To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan, and not quite enough time.
No matter how much we might wish it weren’t so, all art faces forward, into the future. All art is for the people who come with us or after us. Those who came before shall never know our art.
The most useful criticism in any art [form] is new work done with the same tools.
So, this is one of the designs I’ve been working on for Will Hindmarch’s GUMSHOE game Razed. The game concept is great, and it’s been a blast working on the designs. more to follow, and here’s more info on the game and the piece, from the publisher.
It has been a wonderful experience, watching the concept artists bring the creatures of Razed to life. This illustration genuinely freaks me out. I love that about it.
So while our art cannot, as we wish it could, save us from wars, privation, envy, greed, old age, or death, it can revitalize us amidst it all.
