Working for brands is an interesting thing, it’s not normal to find the ones who ‘get it’ infact it’s really rare.
Most of them want to grab some ‘urban’ (sick) ((ugh)) culture for their branding and grab someone who can use spraycans to paint something and get a street feel (again, ugh) Somewhere along the way though they totally lose sight of almost every aspect of the culture they are using. They have a budget which is huge! And spend it in all the wrong places, the artist who paints is usually the bottom of the chain in terms of importance, respect, and payment.
I mean if I’m good enough to paint this for you why you want to hide me?
For example this is a section from a wall which I painted earlier this year, I didn’t sign...but I was given a contract to sign stating that I cannot share that I did this, actually there were some really other really alarming points. It was all totally geared to treating the artist like they are nothing and don’t exist. It’s not a sob story it’s all good, I’m only doing them now for people who I know and can feel are on my level with this. I know some artists don’t actually want to be known to do this work, I get that too.
It’s a shame imho overall though because brands could really get some great art, and help artists too!
It’s shortsighted, if I was a big name artist you can guarantee they’d be happy to use my name on it, but guess what, they couldn’t afford a name lol so came to me lol
Thing is tho they can and should imo use these as collabs, and help and promote. And that helps create a name for the artist involved and a relationship and everyone wins longer term. But no.
Shout out to the brands who are getting artists to hand paint and aren’t ashamed of who they chose to do the work 🙌❤️🎨
Just got off the phone with a friend, who is married. He’s going through some pretty tough stuff in his life right now. Which sucks, I get it. But he made the comment that if we were both in a “different life” that we’d be together. *I’ve never made any hints, suggestions, comments or ANYTHING to that train of thought.* WTF. Why can’t I just be friends with the gentlemen folk (in relationships or otherwise) and it not be anything but that? Is there a different train of thought for females? I’m a believer that you can and should be able to be friends with both sexes and it not be anything but that! Help me. Am I seeing this wrong? I’m just so put off lately by the guys are put in the friend zone monologue. Are you really or are you oblivious? #needhelponthis#amiwrong#wtf#justwannabefriends#neednoexplanation#ugh
Считается сексуальным есть что-то сочное типа клубники или кусочка дыни, но, простите, принглс стоили две сотки, и если это не сексуально, то у меня вопросы к трендам... Кстати, как вам новая поплывшая татуха? :--)) Got #tattoed so #fast#UGH !!
