The Art of Conversation
I think that we need to take a pause and consider how to have an open conversation about how we run our businesses on our separate islands.
The way we converse is a large part of the overall problem.
I have great empathy for those illustrators who will be vilified within our community for making a 'mistake'. This is division, not solidarity. I respect Chris for backing out of Google's offer, but even more so for admitting to taking it.
I'm grateful that the NYT article was written, and to those that are willing stand for their convictions and the community as a whole... I sincerely hope that what happened with Chris the other day will not prevent others from sharing their experiences and looking for a dialogue, support/advice.
