Lol, dude you try dealing with 100+ submissions from new artists every day, all of them convinced they are a genius who will revolutionize the art world. when the overwhelmingly vast majority are 'special flower' middle class kids with a limitless sense of entitlement and a few spoon-fed art theory cliches. just sayin'

I don't contend to understand anything about art outside of my personal relationship with it, just my 2c.

I don't know what you mean here. Do you mean like "why make non-representational art?"

The Wolfe thing looks good, adding it to my reading list. TBH I don't know anything about the art world, my whole contact with it is reading about it and seeing it in person or online. There aren't any galleries at Hinterland U but there are some museums I can check out.

Jeans and coat are too baggy, mainly jeans. Also your cuffs suck and you could use better boots.

That's be nice but I don't have the budget for Aldens. Need to get the coat taken in around the waist.

Wolfe never wrote a novel called the painted veil. He wrote a very bad essay called the painted word. You can read it if you want to get a few cheap laughs. He writes about art with the same deep knowledge of his chosen topic he would later display when writing about college.

No, you need to size down on the coat. Don't waste money tailoring something that is a size too big. Also, get a v-neck undershirt.

recommend a counterpoint? It's my only source on the subject, which I happened to read because I'm a Wolfe fan. painted veil was a slip, as established already. I think I saw the movie version but can't be sure.

also, makeshift, I realized after writing that particular phrase that it was contradictory to the point I was trying to make anyways.. RO definately isn't abstract in the same vein imo. I was thinking of general enquiry rather than 'why' specifically, if that makes sense.

Nice shirt, would like to see close up on the pattern. How's the fit of +J suits? Slim erring to the side of conservative?

Where can I find the same peacoat in a 36? This one just popped up on SW&D. Surely I can't find another one for the price I paid.
The shirt that you see is the shirt I actually wore today, but I decided I liked the look of the Jcrew more for the pic. Should've taken it off.
