Candy Corn and Sweet Tooth 2.0

OCTOBER 18, 2006
After I uploaded the first Candy Corn and Tooth Image last night, I had a gnawing pain in my gut telling me I could have done it better. I initially thought I should do it digitally but brushed those feelings aside because I thought I SHOULD paint it.

Why? Because of something I call digital guilt. I have a stigma about my work... thoughts that it's inferior to something hand painted. I'm definitely now more comfortable in Illustrator than with a paintbrush and canvas. After all, you make a mistake on a painting and there's no command+z.

Does anyone else struggle with digital guilt?
