All i do is win!

I always used to think that actually coming up with new ideas and producing the work would be the hard part about being an artist but ,as Snoop put it in ‘Gin & juice‘, we ‘keep coming up with funky ass shit like every single day’. Now whilst this in itself is a good thing it merely highlight our deficiencies in marketing as we have a back catalog of work building up on us! Maybe i’ll pull a Jimmy Cauty and just burn the lot of it…

In fact marketing, sales and promotion turns out to be the toughest part of the job as it’s probably the least enjoyable aspect for me personally (anyone got any good ideas or care to help??) I didn’t really sign up for that side of things as self-promotion is something of a tough game – especially when you are dealing with your own product but we somehow muddle along. Anway that’s enough moaning for one day as in reality all we do is win!

Cardboard, cardboard, everywhere!

There’s nothing like giving yourself more work to do. I printed up these bits of cardboard in order that we could do some street drops (once the weather had bucked up and the cardboard would survive more than 2 minutes in the rain) but then decided it would be best if they were all hand-finished thus increasing our workload exponentially (i love that work ‘exponentially’!)

Anyway I always wonder what happens with pieces when you put them on the street. Do people pick them up? Does the bin man get them? Are they otherwise destroyed? Who knows. What they do once released is up to them – although i always wish them the very best of luck. It’s a harsh world out there and the circle of life is always turning but surely some must make it somewhere nice…
