"COMICS ARE A STORYTELLING MEDIUM": Comics are images that have a relationship. The comic artist has no obligation to render events happening in time across a series of illustrations. Your high school year book is a comic book, but it doesn’t tell a story, it just…
The only think I disagree with here is the first point. Some sort of narrative IS required in any artistic work. That narrative can take on a lot of abstracted forms, but it has to be some narrative nonetheless. Even something like Beethoven has a narrative of emotional setpieces. Duchamp’s Fountain holds a meta-narrative about art itself.
If you create a sequence of images together, there’s some meaning behind why you put the images together and that meaning is narrative- if there’s absolutely no meaning behind it, it’s really just a set of unrelated pieces, not a single work.
Oh, man, oh man. If there is something that keeps me from reblogging things on this website, it’s when I see a really cool post or image set and am ready to share it, but someone’s written “Instead of f*king reblogging cats or half naked women reblog something that matters.”
Cuz, I mean, excuse…
If you aren’t miserable about everything in the world at any given moment, you are worse than Hitler and I hope you die.
Yeah, ok. Whatever.
I’m crying at the beauty
So, after getting in a fairly heated debate about art with a friend (who’s super rad, by the way), I decided I should really consider and weigh my stance, and maybe be prepared to admit that I’m a tremendous asshole- which I am. I guess I took a lot for granted when talking. A lot of ideas that I’ve kinda taken up for myself and hold really close, that all went into my opinion. But maybe I can sorta explain why I think the way I do about artistic integrity, if you would give me the chance.
Lowpoly Space Shiba for a thing
