Super Sketchies 3/11/14 part 2: More stuff. Tried to practice line confidence by copying a character from my favorite artist Endling. Then at the bottom, I worked on the hairstyle for my character.
Super Sketchies 3/11/14 part 1: I haven’t been uploading my art for a while for reasons unknown or forgotten. I need fore figure and anatomy practice; certain body parts get bigger or smaller when they shouldn’t be.
TIME TO START HITTIN’ DEM LOOMIS AND BRIDGMAN BOOKS.
I also did fanart on animunerdery’s Satsuki’s motorcycle outfit. So yea.
Aww man Endling is doing more art.
A lot of people have messaged me about the 30 Day Challenge list. I hadn’t realized the link on my old post was down, so I’m reposting it now, as well as letting you all know for the next 8 weeks I’ll be posting every Monday with animated illustrations. Hopefully I can brighten up your otherwise dry work week Monday!
Maybe put it on a canvas instead of someone’s property, and we can all be happy.
who paying for these canvases or the art programs so these kids can have that? Why should it matter if these run down buildings that never get fixed up anyway get graffiti’d?
Therein lies the issue. Art programs, both visual and performance based, are the first programs to be cut. Canvas ain’t cheap. Neither are the supplies. Much of the graffiti that takes place IS on buildings that are run down. The gov’t didn’t place any value on these properties and yet get pissy with dudes “vandalizing” their shit. You can’t have it both ways, ya dig.
My father was a garment contractor in LA. In the late 80s, he owned the building where he had his factory. He thought it would be a cool idea to commission local graffiti artists, usually young Black and Latino men looking to stay out of trouble, to paint murals on his buildings. After all, he runs a garment design/manufacturing company, and creative signage is great advertising.
One day, he showed up to the building and the city just painted over the murals without permission or notice.
First, the city told him he couldn’t have graffiti art on HIS building because it brought down property value. After he complained, then they said: ok you can do this, but you need a permit. After he got the permit, then the city said: ok, but you can only use these artists. Of course, these artists were all White graphic design students from USC, and of course they charged 3x more.
There is a prejudice against this type of art, and it’s racial. Banksy vandalizes folks buildings all the time, and folks treat him like the Messiah. He ain’t doing nothing new that Black and Brown folks haven’t done for decades.
This whole post…I just find it really interesting! And sad, too, but good thing to read.
I’m pretty sure the bank/government owns the building, they are just lending it to your father. They have the power to kick him out if he can’t keep up with his payment or if they just don’t like him(provided if they can mask their ulterior motive with some BS).
Graffiti is still considered vandalism for two reasons:
1)For the aforementioned statement above . Even if the building is run down, the bank still owns it and is considered someone’s property.
2)To people who don’t know much about Graffiti, there is no difference between this and someone writing “SALLY SUX MANY DIX” in big, bold, black letters. Unless you do graffiti and/or have a friend who does it, this just looks like someone scribbled a bunch of lines on the wall while a rainbow barfed all over it. Most people can’t see the letters and stuff in it and it confuses them.
I remember when I asked a friend in HS to teach me how to read Graffiti. He drew something in his sketchbook and told me it spelled “HAT” while pointing out the how each line formed into a letter. All I was thinking at the moment was “Nigga you just drew a bunch of lines and said it spelled “HAT”, what BS is that?”. That’s how a lot of people see graffiti.
And people don’t treat Banksy like the Messiah. His critics call his work “glorified vandalism” and other graffiti arts start graffiti fights with him. People get his work because it is simple and easy to understand/interpret.
More Visual fuckery:
Some shit about consumerism:
And finally the reason why the top original image is considered art is because we have a history of things similar to it that we can draw comparisons to in a attempt to interpret its meaning but before stuff like that was considered dumb for a long time before they became “art” and the same will happen to graffiti.
But what do I know, I’m a 22 year old black guy so I’m pretty sure my opinion is null and void.
Why hasn't the Wii U done as good as well in sales when it has so many games and is backwards compatible with Wii games (along with stuff from the Wii U marketplace)? I could just look it up with google but I felt like asking you because you seem to be pretty knowledgeable and up to date with gaming.
Nintendo is terrible when it comes to third parties, and no one wants to even bother. Unfortunately, Nintendo will always get passed up when it comes to the yearly Call of Duties, Battlefields, Assassin’s Creeds, etc., and those are the big games nowadays.
Nintendo does okay on Mario, and it did great because with the Wii because they tapped into a new market without having to spend all their money on HD gaming. HD gaming is so expensive that nothing outside of blockbuster triple-A titles can survive, and now that Nintendo’s been dragged into the HD era, it’s losing money big time.
It’s a shame, because as far as the new consoles go, the Wii U has the most games I’m looking forward to so far. But then I’m not a fan of the previously mentioned games.
Could be also because Nintendo hasn’t been marketing the Wii U as much as the Wii. I remember the “Wii would like to play” commercial popping up almost every day 24/7.
