Illustration Highlight – Off Path
When in doubt just make your own path. Or follow the dinosaur that knows best. You don’t always have to stay on marked paths.
The brave dinosaur, or maybe the dinosaur that is just sick of the indirect paths, is cutting through a field of grass as the wandering sorcerer looks on in bewilderment.
If there’s a better way to do something, then why not? The paths in the illustration are very obviously inefficient but safe to follow. I feel that the act of staying a path is the equivalent of doing what others think is best for you. Cutting through the grass saves a lot of time but is unpredictable. It can be kind of scary, but it can also be a lot of fun. Recently, I’ve felt that doing what you love means doing things unconventionally.
After trying to do art on the side as a hobby, hoping it would become something bigger, I realized I would never get to where I wanted to be. I want to be the dinosaur. Instead of always doing what is normal, I want to be that person who does what everyone else thinks about doing.
