The Mural This is me in 3 years. This probably IS the way I would handle it. From the AAF Dallas. (Thanks to Shanon Wille for calling my parenting skills into question.)

The God Complex

Posted on Feb 22, 2012

Everyone accuses creatives of being difficult prima donna’s with inflated egos and god-complexes. Guilty. But it’s not our fault. We have to be slightly delusional in order to survive. Our jobs and work-product aren’t quantifiable in a spreadsheet. Companies try to do it all the time. Creativity doesn’t fit in a spreadsheet. The fact there’s […]
