What illustrator and architect Jody Brown's quasi-scientific drawings reveal is a brain blessed with brilliance and plagued with self-doubt, as well as a right and left lobe at constant odds with one another. The same organ that has mastered the ability to "distinguish between 75 shades of white" is still reconciling with a "traumatic childhood memory involving shag carpeting." While one section "kinda likes that idea," the other "is pretty sure this is a terrible idea," which doesn't help the part that "keeps you up all night thinking about it."Yes, it is the designer's cross to carry that there are special places in his or her brain for self-loathing, Charles Eames, and carpet samples and a special spot on the forehead to bang on the table when it all gets to be too much.
