Why What You See is NOT What You Get with Email

by Clint Watson on 1/31/2013 7:24:36 AM
3 Comments

What all of these different rendering engines mean is that the only way to be sure your email newsletter looks correct is to stick to a small, safe subset of HTML and then to rigorously test each design in every major email program...and different versions of those programs...and with images blocked...and with images enabled. One option for artists would be to pay a designer to design your email designs and test them in all of these email programs. Then you could use the same design over and over, being careful to only change your content and none of the HTML itself. Like I said before, it's a quagmire. [...]

Accepting Deception - We Have a Choice

by Carolyn Henderson on 1/29/2013 7:55:37 AM
13 Comments

Sure, it's "smart" to figure out how people think, but when you use that knowledge to manipulate people into doing what is best for you and not necessarily best for them, this becomes questionable. And when people find out that they've been used -- and believe me, truth comes out, and usually at the most inopportune times -- they feel stupid, and that ultimately is not good for your business.

Why Artists Need to Develop a Thick Skin: Part 3 - Some final thoughts

by Brian Sherwin on 1/24/2013 11:22:26 AM
22 Comments

If you 'run away' from your art practice during tough times... reflect on the reason why. Take a deep look. Write your thoughts down. After doing so -- decide how to improve upon those weaknesses. Find ways to alleviate the struggle you feel when faced with specific art world related situations. You may not be able to eliminate every angle of doubt ... that said, you may -- by means of self-reflection -- be able to bolster some inner grit. A little grit can go a long way (just ask Jack White). [...]

Why It's Fine For Artists to Lower Their Prices

by Clint Watson on 1/24/2013 7:34:35 AM
46 Comments

This article is not to tell you that you should lower your prices...nor is it telling you not to raise your prices. But I sometimes meet artists who feel that they made a mistake in their pricing and wish to lower prices but don't because of the old "never lower prices rule." This post is for those artists.

Institutional Critique OR Institutional Sabotage: Is the Current Direction of Graffiti Art Worth Defending?

by Brian Sherwin on 1/17/2013 8:26:56 PM
23 Comments

I would suggest that the current direction in graffiti art -- at least the institutionally critiqued version -- can be described as a selfish act. It is a thirst for fame and fortune, rather than a tool for facilitating real change... it is a market ploy rather than a tool for exposing social struggles -- a chunk of culture reduced to a mere gimmick. I refuse to defend that. I won't. [...]
