THOU SHALT NOT (career) COVET!!! gahhh but I can't help it!!!!
There are so many people whose work makes me so juiced that I need to listen to a really hyper song to calm down. Funnily enough, most of these people are somehow fashion related, I have not learned about a single one of them in school, and none of them have pretentious artist statements overpowering their work. Since I sit in front of a computer in a gallery doing nothing for seven hours every Saturday I have decided to start profiling all the inspiring creative awesome people that actually make me excited about "art," so here it is: IDLE (haha get it? cuz sometimes I'm really lazy) WORSHIP numero uno, featuring GARY CARD!!!!
Gary Card guy is a sick sick sick set designer/artist/stylist type. I relate to the way he doesn't identify to one label, especially that of "artist." I feel like I am in a weird space between artist/designer/craftsperson/wannabe-event-planner so I am super down with embracing mulit-genre-ness. Hybridity is hot babay (just listen to any rap song about mixed race girls)!
I am putting a bunch of links to articles and interviews with him because I don't feel like reading right now but one day I will.
His blog- on which I relate to one of his posts about how he got so into making something for a show that he forgot to invite anyone. Towards the end of my senior show I got too deep into the making and fell off my social media/ PR game.
Cool article where he talks about not neatly fitting into one occupational label
An interview with him from my favorite online publication, Dazed Digital
