I have been exceptionally stimulated by the ideas of Malcolm Gladwell, and a book he recently wrote called Outliers. In it, among lots of stories and ideas, he outright disclaims talent, and puts forth the idea of this concept of a 10,000 hrs rule. This rule says that it takes 10,000 hours to become really good at any one thing. The Beatles, Bill Gates, and I am going to go ahead and put Jason Seiler in this category, are not talented but have an exceptional love for the thing they do, the kind of love that allows someone to spend 10,000 hours studying one thing.
So here is my attempt to begin 10,000 hours doing one of the things I love, caricature. I guess I'm about 500 or so hours in.
