A bit ashamed I have to confess that I often stay a while looking at Jackie Coogans eyes. Great eyes!..How could he have become Uncle Fester in the Adams family?
Many moons ago I've made a pilot for series with his character in "The Kid".

I'll remind you of a poem by Neruda: "There is no space wider than pain. there is no universe like the one that bleeds (My translation)

I was thinking, Is it good or bad to have a "variado" style of drawing?
In my case is mostly due to short spam of attention. I used to get bored drawing in the same way even when I animated commercials. and I think I never "stayed in model" with characters from scene to scene.
