who's computer are you using?
aren't computers 'evil'?
are you now a slave to your computer too?
it seems to me that you hate the computer and anyone who uses it. and think of the computer as a 'crutch'.
much like the 'style' you work in is a crutch that you are burdened by every day. so much so that you continuously rant about how it's 'YOUR STYLE' people are ripping YOU off. when in fact YOUR style is just an appropriation of old popular mechanics ads.
fucking whhaaa. boo hoo.
why not admit that the reason you hate the computer is, YOU CAN'T utilize the tool.
just because I (and most designers who like evolution) use the computer to their advantage doesn't make it un-cool.
but I guess its okay for you to say "painting on canvas is un-cool. I'd much rather pain in this cave".
I mean really, I feel sorry for you.
if people ARE truly ripping you off...why are you not flattered? haven't you ever heard the saying 'imitation is the highest form of flattery'? why not take advantage of the position you are in to use your powers for good? people love your work. people are inspired by it. why not be positive and embrace it? why cry about it?
booohooo! people know who I am! they like my work....whaaa....they respect it even...well, of course, until they spend five minutes with me.
instead of playing Moses and climbing on the rock to preach about what's cool and not cool, why not try to help people?
why not be happy? or is it 'grunge' to be sad?
here's my challenge to you Mr. Art Chantry, seattle-grunge-rock-poster-god-who-moved-to-st.louis-to-follow-his-partner-who-is-a-patsy-to-the-man:
Instead of bitching about how everyone sucks and everyone is ripping you off, why not move on? 'invent' a new style.
if you are so anti-computer, why the hell are you on this site anyway? or on that computer for that matter?
