What makes art worth doing?
“Friend”, Casey Fredrick, Pencil on Paper. This chapter was about making art that’s important and not just making art that’s appealing. So I drew my friend because she’s important to me and she’s funny.

“Practice” Pen on Paper, Molly Manthei, 2017
“Control P – Profound”, Aubrie Torhorst, pencil, 2017. Chapter 8 mentioned how unlike modern technology, you can’t press control + P to make artwork profound.
