undo considered harmful


"undo" considered harmful

  • undo as part of a feedback loop
    • intentional activity is good for learning
    • different to draw something, erase/rub it out, then draw it again than to try to back up
  • go forward not backward
  • solve your own mistakes + learn not to make them
  • you still have more tools at your disposal than working w/ traditional media, so just blaze forward.
  • stop reinforcing the bad moves, instead incentivize yourself to do it right.
  • go with the flow, enable flow by not backing up or stuttering
  • you can always do it again - repetition by erasing/knocking down the drawing and making another pass, or making a new layer.
