Scrappers...I heard you criticize other art kind of harshly once .So I called your art crap.I would like to sincerely apologize for trying to "get your goat".Your contributions to the Mercury are awesome....in hindsight.The cake,your choice of artists for the covers,your own covers,the recent fish wave.....excellant!Forgive me for being a dick?Peace.
I've seen lots of actual childrens art though.Hire them and quit ripping them off.Kids could use some money too.
@Internet Narcistical Coconut Head: I still don`t get why the Lazers one had to die. Have u seen boobs_n_lazers.com?
Leaky.......done honestly would BE done by kids and THEIR perspectives.You get it?
Brilliant... keep it up. How about overworked pencil sketches of some guys girlfriend?
Mitch O'Connell's art career. Born in a tryst between Juxtapoz magazine's readership and Coop's merchandising success. A shameless parade of popular memes and calculated images (zombies, Bettie Page, 50's kitsch), he was a sort of WalMart Shag.
He's survived by millions of dollars worth of T-shirts and similar paraphernalia at Hot Topics and Urban Outfitters.
i would add owls also.
This is pretty hilarious. But I guess I now have to unfollow the Tumblr called Look At This Fucking Triangle: http://lookatthisfuckingtriangle.tumblr.co…. Oh well.
I still dig the "kid art done by adults", when done honestly. It always gives me a perspective of the adult world we live in. Or the semi adult world we live in, which is the case of this way of presenting to the world situations and/or ideas. "Kid art done by adults", I say, that it should go on and on and not get shot down nor hanged.
also, "silhouettes telephone poles with birds on telephone wires".
Might I suggest Alberta St genre and steam punk genre. also, The Pearl District.
Yet another to go.....kid art done by adults !!!! You know who you are.Try exposing not exploiting the kids.Let them do the art.Support your local youths....not some talentless adult.
Please some one shoot the fake Lolita one. I mean, the fake ones. Myspaces and FB profiles will thank you anonymous shooter. And Magazines and Vampire movies. It´s a public service.
the "art on skateboard decks" and "anime style girls with big eyes" are excellent additions.
can we also add the art world's overall fascination with street art to this list?
"R.I.P. Appreciation, and meaningful analysis in Art review. Honestly, what purpose does this article serve?"
That there are tons of effortless hacks and unoriginal copycats. Appreciation is one thing, but intellectualizing art (especially if its been done over and over)usually goes too far. But you can go ahead and appreciate anything you want ;)
Can birds and botanical illustrations be added to this list?
I don't know that I agree that people with animal heads belongs in the "crappy art trends" category. I'd say it's a timeless theme that resonates with people, therefore it belongs in the still enjoyable art trends category. Portland has a lot of art that is clearly responding to design trends- using birds being an obvious one. I see a lot of whales and octopuses on design blogs and in art as well. But despite the obvious trendiness I still find myself drawn to images of each, so what's the point in sneering?
Pinki, I'm pretty sure the purpose of this article is to out people who lack a sense of humor.
