I especially like “Your mother and I raised you to do better than this.” :D
Indeed. That kid needs to practice more.
That is a very cool advert idea. I love it!!!
I kind of love this. I, also, love the “your mother and I raised you to do better than this” one. That IS some pretty sorry doodling.
Yes art is like drugs, it usually sets you up for a life of miserable failures and scraping to get by. You accomplish nothing of worth in the world and are a bunch of useless idiots destined to live off the public dollar. Sounds just like drug addicts to me
Wow. And to think I went to school for a degree in Art… and came out a graphic designer….and am making more than enough money to live off of and help my family with….without the help of the public dollar….
And if you think donating to charity, paying my taxes, being a supervisor at my work and a mentor to underprivileged kids makes me a useless idiot then maybe we need to re-evaluate that term…
Sure, a life as an artist does set us up for some sort of failure but those of us that are true artists are able to learn from our mistakes/failures and grow as a person/artist. It’s called constructive criticism and you learn to accept it.
I’m curious to know if you’ve ever had a favorite movie, listened to music or looked at a painting and enjoyed it. Even if it was for only a second. That tells me that there is some worth to what we, the artistic community, put out into the world. so, on behalf of all of us, your welcome.
OK- start with your skin, move outwards…underwear, clothing, the chair, the table, the shape of the room, the drapes, the carpet, the streetscape outside, the cars, the streetlights, the computer you are sitting in front of, All designed by someone who went to Art school at some stage….
That magazine you like, music videos, your favourite shoes, every word you read in a supermarket, on a billboard, let’s stop here while you work it out for yourself.
You do realise that an artist made these ads?
They may not accomplish anything of worth, but certainly of value. Something you as the degenerated and brainwashed subject you are will probably never be able to distinguish.
Great idea – there several groups of individuals who can benefit from an introduction to the arts. One of those groups is young people. As with the other groups, young people may not have the vocabulary or the ability to verbalize what the are thinking but – give them a brush, a pen, a piece of stone, a piece of clay and a minimum of instruction and you may well provide them with the ability to “talk”, to tell you what they are thinking even though the may not be able to verbalize that same process.
Even if all they learn is that “I don’t like doing this” you have still provided an opportunity to learn which they may not have had beforehand.
Very few of these individuals may posess the innate talent or desire to continue to pursue their artistic talents, but if you guide even one in a better direction then you fulfill your obligation to say Thank You for the talent you ghave been blessed with.
For the record, Anon (if that IS your real name), my father is a full-time professional watercolor artist and has been for over 30 years. He lives well and put two kids through college. He has never lived off the public dollar. Prior to selling his artwork full time, he taught high school art (back in the day when they had such jobs). Please stop generalizing about artists. There are plenty of successful ones. Graphic artists are in high demand these days for all sorts of industries. Oh, and I love this ad campaign. I was raised to know the warning signs of art.
Well said, Zaz!
Where, oh, where did I go wrong? My daughter has her BFA in Illustration. Is there any hope? (love it.)
I would add one with the kid shouting to their dad, “I learned it by watching you!” (a la a drug commercial from the 90′s).
OMG! Yes!!! That would be really good.
aah! i love it.
