I believe in beginner’s luck. If you don’t know the right way to do things you also don’t know the wrong way. As long as you have a solid idea, a point of view, and honest communication you will always make something more then decoration, you will make something culturally significant.
I don’t believe eggs should be kept in one basket. That’s why I’m a writer, who can illustrate and an artists who can art direct. Sure a person with one job title fits into corporate shoes more comfortably, but let’s face it, a person who can fill more then one pair of boots can kick more ass.
