In this the Big Tidy Campaign of 2017 one encounters many thorny questions. I have several conundrums that I face. In those moments work stops, and I must think.
It’s no use just bashing about — one needs a plan. Actually I have a plan. But the obstacles (there are obstacles), they slow you down.
To represent these episodes of cogitation, I have pulled out this little drawing of Planes of the Head Guy. I don’t have a Planes of the Head Guy myself. I drew someone else’s Planes of the Head Guy a while back.
I confess it confused me at first. I was wondering as I was looking at this drawing (clearly after a sculpture) why I hadn’t drawn the other eye. Then I remembered. “It’s Planes of the Head Guy.” Of course.
He is only anatomical on one side. He’s mostly planes on the other side. “Ah,” you say, “that explains it.” Would that the obstacles to the Big Tidy were as clearly discerned.
Anyway, I’m thinking. We’re thinking. Me and Planes of the Head Guy.
