So we have an Italian exchange student at our school. And he and I were hanging out and he saw a pony, and he tried to show me but he didn’t know what it was called so he just pointed at it and said “Look, the compressed horse.”
And then he just grinned at his complete understanding of the English language.
My entry for Powell’s Books tote bag design contest.
You can read more eloquent arguments against these types of contests here and all over the internet if you search for it. I do believe there are exceptions and art contests that aren’t exploitative. Powell’s argument that they have three designers on staff doesn’t make this $500 gift card contest one of them. If you read the rules of submission this contest is clearly not meant for amateurs either.
I loathe design contests and what they’ve done to the design world. I loathe them with a fiery passion. Any company that is looking for art should budget for the cost of it just like any other aspect of business and hire a designer, not make them rip each others’ throats out for a chance.
*university voice* unfortunately… we have too much money… so we have to raise tuition so we can build a place to keep all the other money in… so sorry unavoidable
Some paints have gold in them, no joke.
I would totally understand the price if the paint had gold in it but this is plain old cadmium yellow medium
It’s like this snobby old prestigious brand of oil paint though so I guess it makes sense
