The Worth of Wise Words Taken Seriously

"Besides, let's face it - you only use these excuses to justify not making something. You now have permission to go home and make nothing like nobody else. Hopefully when you're 75, you'll just die watching TV having made nothing and passed on no wisdom to anybody through an art form you spent most of your life learning for no real reason.
Yeah, I'm calling you guys out. I think you're chicken. Afraid of failure or just plain lazy. Prove me wrong. Ha!"


"I don't really stand amazed when people say, "i have this great story idea about a robot... I just need someone who can draw." I want to say, "Gee, I have 80 stories about robots and I can only draw this one graphic novel this year and it's not about robots... maybe next year.

Ideas are cheap. Execution of ideas are the rarest. I hate talking tabout what I'm gonna do, what I'm gonna do, someday I've got this movie I wanna make... just do it."

- Doug Tennapel

PLANET GRIFFIN has gained greater wisdom with this, so I hope the rest of you out there learn something. Special thanks to Brian for bringing this to my attention.
