Nothing makes much sense in a typical artists' life. Like right now, I've just started on a bunch of commissioned artworks and I still have lots of assignments from other people that I have yet to put down on paper. I haven't got the foggiest notion why I'm like that or why it's common among artists to do so. Perhaps the almost sedentary lifestyle leads us to commit something so death defying as rushing a deadline? It never fails. The adrenaline rush pumping through the blood gets the juices flowing. No matter how much lead one gives, artists will always do commissioned works at the last possible minute. Surprisingly, 99% of those works surpass everyone's expectations, including the artist himself. That in itself is another mystery that's yet to be solved.
