THE SPAM COLLABORATION CONTINUES

Cuddly things are a stretch, but I could draw generals in my sleep. There's no wrong way to draw a general. That's one thing they don't tell you in art school. One of many. Like about artists' statements. Artists' statements are the purest form of bullshit there is, yet artists seem determined to keep making them. If your art needs explanation, then you need to (a) retool, or (b) make your explanation part of your art. The fact is, however, that few artists seem to be able to write in a way that most humans can understand. Which is probably why they're artists, not writers. So why demand statements from them? It's like asking for a writer's drawing. Or a poet's jingle. Or a quilter's banjo. But you'll never hear that at art school. They eat that shit up.
