Monday Motivator: The Tyranny of the Vanishing Point

Monday Motivator quote

“Have you ever thought about the cultural hegemony of the act of placing the vanishing point on your paper? There you are, drawing so as to solve a problem. You draw to think.

And then, plink. You place a vanishing point, or two, or even three, on your paper. And once you place the point(s), suddenly your entire drawing mindset changes.

With the vanishing point on the paper, suddenly now all lines need to radiate out from the point … you find yourself now working to “make it look right’.”

Kurt Ofer, Eliminate the Vanishing Point


Vanish the vanishing point.
