This sucks x infinity…
Primark have printed my sticker designs on a crappy t-shirt without my consent. They also used a patch from Hanecdote and a brooch created by Mimi Sotudeh. So disrespectful of our work to not even credit or ask us… If you are thinking of buying there, you should think twice.
signal boost! artists work so damn hard, art thieves deserve to have a pin set in their skin for each thing they stole!Also the pink heart looks like a crappy edited version of cakeeater’s riot grrrl pin, except they replace “riot” with “candy” lololol what assholes.
you guys may be able to do something about this, i would seek out legal advice…
oh shit no way!?
I would be so sad if anyone did this with my work, mildly pleased I do no illustrations so it’s unlikely. This is so so annoying for struggling young (also talented) artists and deserves a lot of signal boosts and complaints.
Donneeee. Someday I’ll do a background on it ☺️ #sleeve #girlswithtattoos #tattoo #floral #flowers #flowertattoo
The function of being an artist for me … is that it’s an experimental area where I can test ways of thinking and operating and hopefully apply the results to real life. The advantage of testing them in an art context is that it doesn’t really matter if you fail. You can afford to take risks that you wouldn’t allow yourself in normal life. Having taken those risks and seen what freedoms they allow or what restrictions they impose, you are then free to extrapolate them into normal-life situation. That’s what I think is the function of culture - to teach you new way of dealing with the world.
"For example, one important idea for me has been to deliberately put people who aren’t qualified in any particular way into creative situations and say to them, ‘look, you can do it. You are capable of operating creatively, you don’t have to be skillful. It has to do with the way you use your brain, not your hands’."
Brian Eno, 1975 (via rivaldealer)
Publicity done right in an anti-rape campaign: double-page spread, pages glued to one another. After the reader forcefully separates them, the image above is revealed with the caption “if you have to use force, it’s rape”.
THIS IS BRILLIANT

I will reblog this until my fingers bleed.
