"Who did the president? Who killed Kennedy? It's a mystery! It's a mystery wrapped in a riddle inside an enigma! The fuckin' shooters don't even know, don't you get it?! I can't keep talking like this, they're gonna kill me! I'm gonna fuckin' die!"
I know this is from a while ago Keron, but I just saw the comment...Honestly, comments like this mean a lot, and you know I respect your opinion. You're one of the few artists that I like as much or more than I did when I first discovered your work. That's probably because YOU have grown so much artistically as well since I saw your work for Extreme or Maximum or whatever it was Instead of just refining what you already were doing, you've really experimented and tried new things, which is something I hope to do as well. I'm becoming a bit bored doing comic stuff to be honest...
Thanks man. the need to change and grow was out of necessity... still trying to punch my weight.
I think you would love some art documentaries. Lots on Youtube. They will scratch that which itches. Some of your favorites like Warhol Basquiat, Picasso, Rothko etc and many on art concepts I think you'd find interesting.
Haha...Yeah, I love me some Warhol! I actually watch one somewhat recently on Alphonse Mucha that I thought was pretty good. It talks a lot about his Slav Epic paintings, which are some of my favorites. If you have some specific ones you could recommend I'll check em out...Maybe even if they involve Warhol
Yeah Mucha is cool. You can't call yourself and illustrator if you haven't studied Mucha. But he's merely that. After studying him for a good while I'm trying to unlearn all that I gathered from his work. It's easy formula for pretty tho.
Basquiat the radiant child is a good one Ther are several Warhol ones. I Highly recommend you watch them. Can't recommend it enough. Picasso: Several as well. There's one in particular that spans his entire career and interview his kids and ex wives. Van Gogh: Several good ones. Mark Rothko: There's a recent one about him Jeff Koons. Just saw one with him.
It's important to watch these as they give a unique insight as to how the outside world views art. Not just illustrators that we are surrounded by but art that challenges and push barriers.
Thanks dude, I know exactly how you feel...It didn't start with JFK, but he was definitely an example of what happens when a president doesn't follow the script he's given...I don't know how dialed in to the whole conspiracy world you are, but I was obsessed with the stuff for a while...It was all pretty depressing until I realized that all this stuff ties into scripture...Anyway, I'm rambling, glad you like!
damn, i feel the same way. i read nothing but literature about government conspiracies and what not. I was totally committed to to telling everyone about. I am now just starting to realize this is part of some sort of divine plan, and have become more accepting of the possible fate pf the world. but i am still devoted to the cause, should a revolution occur. ur one of the first artist i have run into on DA that has some sort of political stance, other than just creating work with no message. then again i didn't really look too hard lol.
Yeah dude, I don't do a lot of politically charged work, but I do have some pretty strong opinions on that kind of thing. I actually have come to the point that I really don't have any trust for either party, or really any politician(except maybe Ron Paul). Its a dirty business, and even more so than we might imagine. I have to say I'm not down for any revolution, other than a peaceful one, and you never really see those do you You should check out the work of Chris White, he's a guy that is/was a part of the "Truth Movement", but he became a Christian during that time and has done a lot of work to show some of the lies that have crept in under the guise of truth...People like David Icke, Jordan Maxwell, the Zeitgeist films...He does some really great debunkumentaries on them. Here's his YouTube channel if you wanna check it out: [link] Anyway, yeah man, feel free to hit me up if you ever have any questions about anything.
