If it were possible to create a perfect piece of photo-realistic art just by following a specific recipe, you could bet your firstborn I would monetize that shit. I would guard it more savagely than the Colonel protected his original thirteen herbs and spices. I would start a cold war with entire nations by threatening to make building-scale caricatures their leaders with horse asses for a face. I would communicate exclusively through little flip books animating a drawing of myself talking in speech bubbles.
But so far as we know, the best recipe for art just seems to be creativity and caring to do it – that being the case, this is what I opt for.
