"Is it worse to be scared than to be bored,
that is the question."
A Time When I Was Scared

by artist in residence
Mischief's artistic recollection of a recent trip to the Doctor's office. A quick visit for one vaccination...at least Daddy and the nurse are smiling.
I get scared too. Like back in college when a professors told me "you're a painter, not an illustrator." But I was too scared...too scared not to have a formal vocation and more importantly, a regular paycheck. Too scared of being a starving artist. Medical Illustration would be a firm foundation, a safe choice...a secure way to earn a living. But almost 20 years of risk aversion can be paralyzing...and boring. So is it "worse to be scared than to be bored?"
Ready to find the courage to try new things...to be a little scared.
The future is a blank canvas.
