You can draw, and probably better than I can - Roger Ebert's Journal
"She said everyone can draw until we are told or convince ourselves that we cannot. We start out drawing everything we see until that day comes when it is pointed out that our drawing of a dog, for example, looks nothing like a dog. Then we begin to believe we cannot draw.

Some few people actually can draw very well, if by that you mean "realistically and accurately." They can draw a dog that looks exactly like a dog. I respect and envy them. It is worth saying however that from a philosophical viewpoint their dog looks no more like a dog than mine does, because their drawing is a two-dimensional representation of the real animal, rendered in either various color choices or some version of monotones. Nor does a photograph look like a dog. You see my point."

Searching for Value in Ludicrous Ideas - Allison Arieff Blog - NYTimes.com
That’s why I am so enamored with the work of inventor/author/cartoonist/former urban planner Steven M. Johnson, a sort of R. Crumb meets R. Buckminster Fuller. Johnson is a former urban planner, and his work tends toward the nodes where social issues intersect with design and urban planning issues.

In discussing his often fantastical, sometimes silly, sometimes visionary concepts, he has said, “If I could use two words to describe what it is that I enjoy it is that I love to be sneakily outrageous . . . [It may be that] I have decided an idea has no practical worth and would never be likely to be adopted seriously (like most of my ideas), but I like it anyway.”

Innovation/Graphics — Internet Time Blog
Innovation often occurs at the intersections — of disciplines, of seemingly unrelated streams of knowledge. For example, this timeline mural depicts politics, business, culture, world events, philosophy and neuroscience. We see how events and ideas in the early 20th century build through the 1960s, converging in an apex of excitement/upheaval with revolutionary events in society (”The Sixties”), technology (Engelbart’s ‘68 demo, Arpanet,etc), philosophy (McLuhan/Bucky Fuller), culture (environmentalism/feminism/desegregation), business (Drucker).
