I know you think what you're doing is just getting your name out there and advertising for some artwork you aren't actually making. The thing is, the people who have to clean that up usually get paid shitty wages to work shitty jobs. I know I know if you don't like it, quit! but in Portland if you aren't willing to take those shitty jobs you probably can't pay your rent or feed yourself. So what do you say? Have a little bit of a heart and don't consciously try to make another human being's job difficult and just paint on a canvas like a real artist. You're terrific. I hope someday we can hold hands.
