I read a book awhile back, The Practice and Science of Drawing by Harold Speed, published in 1972. In it he discusses how a drawing needs a bit of what he called “dither”–the thing that makes a drawing more interesting in it’s imperfections. You can see it in current trends in illustration, music, art–the less perfect work becomes the most interesting. The singer with a Tom Waits crackly voice, the woodcut instead of the perfect Adobe Illustrator drawing. This Illustration was meant to be a compromise between where my work has gone and where I see it going.
