Pictures That Prove You Don't Need Good Taste to Be an Excellent Craftsman | 22 Words

There are two important skills involved in making anything worthwhile: 1) ideas, and 2) execution. Without good execution, the most brilliant idea will fall flat on its face. And the opposite is true as well — flawless craftsmanship cannot save the worst idea in the world.

But damn if those horribly misguided bad ideas don't look pretty cool when they're executed this well.

So what makes an idea good or bad? It all comes down to taste. And with taste, you either have it or you don't. But that distinction, ultimately, has nothing to do with whether or not you're a good craftsman. A lot of times, the most skilled person is given a terrible, tasteless idea. And they have no choice but to just do their best.

Here, we're collecting images from the Awful Taste But Great Execution subreddit, a place where internet users post disgusting things that are made really, really well.

It is a great picture.
