FEDUP WITH THE INDUSTRY OF COMMERCIAL ART AND LACK OF ARTISTIC ORIGINALITY

I know that people rarely take the time to frequent this blog, but theses couple of years have been trying
as a creative person who strives hard to get ones work noticed in the eyes of art directors and art buyers
it is becoming obvious that the industry wants cookie cutter type illustrations where a majority of illustrators
imitate and copy popular artist styles to earn a quick buck. While unique and creatively compelling artist get
over looked and passed over for trendy styles and gimmicks. All you people out there who call yourself
appreciators of art are full of shit, because graffiti,comic illustrators and other forms of low brow art should
and will deserve equal representation.

To all Artist and Illustrators who take the time to develop your own unique voice all props and praises to you,
and regardless of what the art directors, art critics and so-called art buyers say KEEP DOING YOU AND THE
HELL WITH EVERYONE WHO DOES NOT SUPPORT INDEPENDENT ARTISTS .

Peace
Afromation

Good and solid post about the being true to yourself as an independent artist.
