Softcore porn is art now?

It's not softcore porn. It's contemporary art influenced by dada.

There are many reasons to post this today :

 

1. GNR are playing in Switzerland, and Milo Moiré is from that country

 

2. Today's litho is influenced by dada (that movement was founded in Zurich)

 

and last but not least

 

3. That artist has a nice ass

This bitch have nothing to do with dada. Dada is dead, because it's the 21st century, not the early 20th century

If this is you consider high quality art, then i feel sorry you, bro. I might suggest PornHub for nice asses in action

 

This litho is as cliche as it gets, prbably designed by some brazilian high shcool fag from fernando's frequently visited gay bar

If I said the same exact sentence as the person above, I would be criticized and his work would be called "shit" simply because I like it. And I'm the bad guy. Lol.

Picked up a Limited Edition Signed Ralph Steadman print for €110 this week on eBay. 

 

It was included in a limited boxset of anti-war artwork back in 2002 alongside a Banksy piece. 

 

The boxset goes for about €11000 these days but a lot were split up just to sell off the Banksy. 

 

€110 for the Steadman is a fucking steal :lol:

 

Here it is

I'm not familiar with this guy but at least he seems to have talent and a distinct style, so looks pretty cool.

He did most, if not all, of Hunter S. Thompson's illustrations. 

 

I picked up a six pack of beer a few years ago. The brewery used Steadman to design their labels. 

 

He has some cool stuff.

Today I went to an exhibit by one of my favorite artists, a Japanese guy named Hisashi Eguchi.

 

He has amazing linework and pastels, but his real strength is he draws the cutest goddamn girls ever.

The art space was tiny. It was a damn room.  ONE room.  It got pretty full too cause Eguchi tweeted out that he'd be stopping by.

 

Long story short, I got to meet him, tell him he's fucking awesome, shake his hand, and got his autograph.

So I'm feeling super thrilled right now.  What an awesome experience and even better cause now I'll always have his autograph.

 

(I have met Axl, shook his hand and thanked him, but did not get his autograph.  Same with Otomo...met him, shook his hand, thanked him, but no autograph.  I'm grateful for those wonderful opportunities that not many people get, but I'm still haunted by the fact that I was close enough to touch them but didn't get the signature.

 

The one artist I'd still really love to meet the most most now is Frank Miller.  I've never met him, shook his hand, or got his autograph.  I really hope I get a chance someday.)

I met Frank at the first and only big comic book convention I ever attended, in Philadelphia.

It was probably 1983, and I only knew him from Daredevil at that time.

Hmmm....Frank Miller will be at Baltimore Comic Con in September.  You can get a meet n greet and several autographs.   For FIVE HUNDRED US DOLLARS.

 

Am I fucking crazy enough to fly from Japan to Baltimore and then spend half a grand to meet an artist I like?

Honestly guys....I'm seriously considering it.  I'm 40.  I'm single.  I have no wife or girlfriend or kids.  Fuck it....maybe I'll do it.

OK, I'm definitely going.  I can't pass up this chance.  Not only to meet Frank, but here's just a small sampling of other artists that will be there:

 

Art Adams
Neal Adams
Simon Bisley
Howard Chaykin
Garth Ennis !!
Michael Golden
Kevin Maguire
Walter Simonson
Mike Zeck

 

Anyone wanna go to Baltimore with me on Sep 28th??

As I've mentioned before, American comic book artist Frank Miller is probably my all time favorite artist.

 

I just read somewhere that a Japanese ukiyo-e artist named Yoshitoshi was a big influence on him.  I'd never heard of the guy, but I can definitely see it.  Look at the samurai art Frank did during the early 80s in "Ronin" and "Lone Wolf and Cub."

Now look at some of Yoshitoshi's stuff from the late 1800s....pretty awesome, huh?
