“Oh No! , anti- ART SHIEAUX!”

It’s hard to create something honest.

It really is.

Especially when it deals with monsters.

Monsters belong in ART. Not in the real world.

“Oh no! , anti- ART SHOW!” Graphite drawing by Spanksy.

If you are not drawing from life, then what are you doing exactly?

This is the biggest problem I have I guess. I have to force myself to draw from my life-to really put my heart out there on the block for folks to rip apart ,and gobble up. So here’s a piece for ‘Show and Tell’ titled , “Oh No! , anti-ART SHOW!”.

It’s not a piece that the average collector will want to look at .

Dont care.

It wasn’t particularly “fun” to create.

Didnt matter.

I made it because I needed catharsis from Evil.

and because I want to practice what I preach, and share from my life. THAT is what I believe defines a “REAL” piece of ART- not just execution, but Intent and Content as well. The rest is gingerbread, and enough of that shit’ll rot your teeth.
