We tend to think of the arts as disparate industries because their results are different. When I write essays, I use words. When I draw, I use colorful pixels on a screen. The same could be said for any industry – programming, music, or even mathematics – but once you can think about what you want to have happen in your media of choice, it’s a matter of spending the time plotting the way to get there.
For years now, my right hand has occasionally gone numb. It hasn’t particularly been the inspiration for John in “The Story,” who had two of his fingers burned off in a childhood accident, but it seems like a weird coincidence. My hand went numb often enough to where I off-loaded some tasks to my left hand, so I’ve somewhat become ambidextrous. I’m not sure I’d call it a good talent.
