For those of you who read my post last week about brainwashing, I have to tell you that post did not turn out the way I originally imagined it would. I thought it was going to be a silly, tongue-in-cheek kind of post. I was even working on a silly, tongue-in-cheek illustration to go with it.
But as I did my research and fleshed out my original first draft, the subject matter ended up being more serious than I expected. I realized I had a point I wanted to make, and I decided to go all in with making that point. Unfortunately, by the time I was done, the art no longer fit the tone of the blog post. At least not in my opinion. So I decided not to use it.
Even so, a fun drawing is still a fun drawing, so after thinking it over this weekend I decided to share the illustration anyway. Here it is:
I don’t know, maybe I’m over thinking things. Maybe I should have gone ahead and used the illustration anyway.
What do you think? Should I have used this in last week’s Sciency Words post, or would it have detracted too much from the point I was trying to make? Please let me know in the comments, and I’ll keep your thoughts in mind the next time this happens.
