I was over at a friend's house playing one of those living room games where you have to draw a clue for other people to guess at (I won't mention which one since they're not paying for the endorsement). My turn to draw came up, and I frantically whipped out this squiggly poodle. It wasn't supposed to be pretty, merely representative—but it turned out surprisingly well. In retrospect it made me wonder how much of my art is overthought (a lot of it), and how much creativity can come straight from the gut. Art by instinct. Brought to you by a poodle. Liked it enough to keep it and put it on the site.
