SIDE NOTE - ART SCHOOL


YOU KNOW WHAT'S SO CRAZY ABOUT ART SCHOOL?
I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING
YOU'RE LIKE: 
"EVERYTHING RIGHT? I MEAN THOSE ARTSY KIDS WHOA WHO KNOWS!!"



BUT THAT'S NOT IT
IT'S THAT IT'S A BIG WASTE OF TIME
WHY?
WELL ONE IS THAT YOU STILL GO TO SCHOOL WITH PEOPLE WHO COPY FAMOUS ARTISTS BUT IN A SHITTY AND TRITE MATTER


OMG! IS THAT KAWARA? HOLY FUCK IS IT?


NO IT ISN'T........

OR THEY'RE DOING SOMETHING WAAAAY TO TRENDY



WHICH LOOKS LIKE THIS


ALSO I FUCKING HATE MARK RYDEN AND EVERYTHING THAT HE DOES

PLUS A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE GOING FOR THE FECAL FACE AESTHETIC


WHICH IS GREAT IF YOU WANT TO BE ON THE NEXT FEIST ALBUM COVER
AND THAT WILL REALLY ADVANCE ART WAY TO GO GET YOURSELF ON A POSTCARD

AND THEN THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO DO GRAFFITI IN ART SCHOOL


TO PEOPLE WHO DO GRAFFITI IN ART SCHOOL:

STOP

BECAUSE YOU'RE DOING
GRAFFITI IN ART SCHOOL 

WHAT PART OF THAT MAKES SENSE?

ANYWAYS
YOU DON'T NEED TO GO TO ART SCHOOL

YOU'D BE BETTER OFF DOING AN AT HOME PROJECT THING WITH YOUR MOM


ART ISN'T SOMETHING SOMEONE SHOULD BE PAYING $20,000 FOR A YEAR 

WE AREN'T TRAINING TO BE DOCTORS OR FIREFIGHTERS 

WE'RE LEARNING HOW TO MAKE THINGS GOOD
WE'RE LEARNING HOW TO SELL THINGS TO PEOPLE

BECAUSE OF THAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT ART SCHOOLERS HAVE SUCH A SUPERIORITY COMPLEX OVER OTHER PEOPLE 

PERHAPS IT'S JUST US GETTING BACK AT THOSE STOOPID JOCKS FROM HIGH SCHOOL RIGHT?

BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T UNDERSTAND US AND HOW UNIQUE WE ALL ARE 
BECAUSE WE'RE THE ONES THAT SEE THE WORLD DIFFERENTLY 
BECAUSE WE'RE THE ONES WHO COULD DRAW WELL
BECAUSE WE'RE THE ONES THEY ASKED TO DECORATE THE HALLS FOR PROM
BECAUSE WE'RE THE ONES THAT HAVE UNIQUELY DECORATED ROOMS AND OWN DONNIE DARKO
BECAUSE WE'RE THE ONES WHO LISTENED TO ARCADE FIRE AND THE DECEMBERISTS BEFORE THEY WERE POPULAR
BECAUSE ELLIOTT SMITH MENT SOMETHING TO US 

BUT IT COMES DOWN TO THIS:

IN ART SCHOOL WE'RE BASICALLY DRAWING THE PIRATE



BUT TAKING IT WAY TO SERIOUSLY


DON'T TAKE ART SCHOOL TO SERIOUSLY GUYS
SRSLY
LOL
CAUSE IT'S SO STUPID

I disagree with a lot of this.
If this is what you got from art school, you obviously weren't trying or went to the worst art school in the world.

Who cares if you're around shitty artists? You aren't there for them. Stop holding grudges against high school jocks. That's ridiculous.

If you're still in art school, stay there- you need to learn to speak like you're educated. (Hell, even open an art history book or research the pieces that you talk about. No need to spread ignorance.)

P.S. If Shrigley did a blog that looked like a kid made it, I would assume it would look a lot better than yours. Turn off the caps lock.
