08 -- Empathy and Emotional Intelligence: What You Need -- Some of the Icons for Anthony Iannarino's New Book

When I first drew this pic, I made the heart kinda brain-like. You know... with those funny deep furrows, looking all spongy.


It was sorta cool, but when I looked at it, the heart didn't look like a heart. It looked like one really sicko brain. Trying to escape from the dude's head.


So I redrew the heart as a normal heart. And added the little hearts floating around.


For me, this pic epitomises emotional intelligence and empathy. It's all about allowing your brain to take a back seat sometimes.

I painted this pic in ArtRage 2.5 on my Rectron-sponsored Asus R1E tablet pc while two gorgeous tennis players battled it out on the big screen across from me. Ana lost. Vera won. The world's a better place no matter WHO won.
