Several weeks ago I entered a contest over at Red Ravine, you might remember this drawing

the contest was for Out of the Blue Films ( creates exceptional documentaries on important social issues that ignite positive action and promote open dialogue. Our mission is to foster the production of documentaries, feature films and web content of the highest caliber and widest reach; to tell inspiring stories that explore, articulate, educate, and celebrate humanity).

They are doing a documentary called Envy

“A bold, insightful, and humorous feature-length documentary on the causes and consequences of that most corrosive human emotion: ENVY.”

They have created an Envy website Its exciting to receive “Honorable Mention” but I didn’t hesitate to tell them that while its great to receive honorable mention I did indeed ENVY the person who won the Kindle!!

I had written previously on the topic of envy and jealousy. I thought about it last night when ironically the movie Seven aired on t.v., as envy is one of the “seven deadly sins”.

I started doodling and wondering how I might express that idea in a drawing. Since I am slightly obsessed with duos, a theme that comes back to me over and over, I quickly began to imagine how envy might rear its head up between twins and more than that, conjoined twins who are stuck together for life (in some cases).

I wrote a little story to go with the drawing then thought, the drawing would work better alone, generating some thinking from the viewer.

I discovered this contest online about envy. Its almost too late to submit still it gets me to thinking. First the difference between jealousy and envy is…and secondly, what role does jealousy or envy play in an artist’s life.

Red Ravine

Webster’s defines envy as:
1 : painful or resentful awareness of an advantage enjoyed by another joined with a desire to possess the same advantage

and jealousy as:
hostile toward a rival or one believed to enjoy an advantage

“painful and hostile” don’t sound like very healthy words, its something I’d like to think about some more and journal. Getting a handle and some clarity on these emotions may serve in a good way.

I’ll take my journal with me to work today and spend some time with these thoughts.

Its suppose to be a comfortable 83 degrees, good thinking weather 😀
