Graciousness trumps aesthetics. Graciousness IS aesthetics. If you don't believe me, consider it because it's true. And it's a grasshopper fact you won't get from NYU.
It's possible I was riding a cheese bicycle (and, you know, playing the fiddle) when I came up with this platitude. You could just graciously pardon me and revel in its yummy cheesy goodness anyway if you'd like. This quaility of cheese ain't strained, baby!
At any rate, I quite like this drawing by Jill Culton from a Maverix Studios charity auction.
I stylized it a bit, for my own pleasure.
