so how will you print something on canvas? is it screenprinted or what?

ive been tinkering with some fashion shots that i like and might want to get screenprinted onto canvas (if its a possibility)

here's an infuriating little bit of knowledge about HR departments at big companies, by the way. i had people send resumes directly to me and skip HR, because what I realized was that our HR people didn't necessarily have any experience in or knowledge of the industry they were hiring for. they may be doing the hiring for a fashion gig, for instance, but their background is probably in HR, not fashion. so if you're sending letters to a big company, keep in mind that it has to get through a layer of non-specialists before it even gets to the person you're really trying to impress.

Also, if you have a single contact in the organization, get to them, and move your way up. I can't tell you how many times I've seen a hire be made nearly on the spot on the merit of a personal recommendation. The reason is simple and obvious - most people can successfully bullshit their way through a resume, and many, through an interview. However, it's nearly impossible completely bullshit your way through life. And even if you do, usually your friends will be the ones who see the breaks.

I always value an endorsement from someone I trust more than I do anything one paper.

I'm not actually sure how my friend intends to do it, but if it turns out nice I'll share the technique with you guys!

Ha he is a giant douchebag and arguably outright fraudulent in some of his works, but you can't deny he certainly understands the concept of art as a commerce or his ability to leave an impression.

I went to his exhibition in the Tate Modern last year and it was unreal; the shark suspended in formaldehyde, the windows of butterfly wings, the head of the cow in the fly cube...I was literally the only one in my class of like 20 that really liked it lol

I stumbled upon an exhibit when I was in Monte Carlo a few heard back. I saw that huge statue of the women with exposed breasts and some of his anatomy statues. 'twas cool!

I was going to save this for Should I or Shouldn't I, but hey reedo:






Two hundred for four 40 x 27" canvasses.










EDIT. Also, I dunno if you caught that documentary about Wayne White and his 'word paitings', but I was thinking about trying something like this with thrift store finds.

My marginal linen/burlap/whatever gats developed a hole on the side, same spot on both shoes, after a few months of light wear. That material, while cool texturally, is bullshit

I watched "Parker" today (don't ask) and to my surprise could see my school and almost my house in the movie from an ariel shot. At the same time Orlebar Brown released some Palm Beach prints. Cool coincidences

Keep in mind my room is minimal with cork flooring (weird I know), mostly dark dark brown or mahogany furniture, and it will eventually have a crimson persian rug in the middle (estate sale hunting this wknd!).

-Van Gogh's Wheatfielf w/ Crows (Canvas)
-Van Gogh's Skeleton w/ Cigarette (Canvas)
- Peter Saville's Joy Division cover (black frame, white border)
-Hirst's Physical Impossibility of Death... (Black Frame)
-A quote from a favorite author of song (Considering Camus: "Should I kill myself, or have a cup of coffee?")

Thoughts?


It only works if your list taken as a whole is in itself a conceptual piece of art, a comment on cliché

Reedo: save the money and buy some better booze/jawnz instead. I promise you will enjoy those more.
