Wallpaper/Art Thingy  
This just happened to end up wallpaper sized (800x600), it wasn't really originally part of the plan. Be warned, this image is subject to a particular cynical, dark part of my sense of humor. It's not pr0n or anything, but it does poke fun at some of the more popular art styles I've been seeing on LJ. So if you click on this and get pissed off, I don't want to hear complaints... Thumbnail behind the cut for the lower bandwidth visitors.



Click on the thumbnail. Really. It's way way complex.



I entitle this lovely piece of artwork..."If I make it messy enough, maybe people will mistake it for art."

I think that pretty much gets my point across.

P.S. Anyone who is really up for some nasty bluntness can e-mail me to find out what the tiny text says.

I really like it... it's not exactly Me so I can't use it, but it's quite beautifully put together.

I didn't try to put it together beautifully. I tried to put it together in the exact same way every single other damn person who uses this style does.

But, thanks, I think, I guess that's a compliment.

Art is not a soup can.

That is not a soup can.

Therefore, it is art. :)

(Seriously, I like it. It's a cool collage-style that I've wanted to tinker with myself, but hadn't had the chance to get around to. Very cool diffusion, too... I like that effect.)

It's pretty damned easy. S'why everyone is doing it.

Dude. IT SPEAKS TO ME. It's so.. profound, man. Complete nonsense, but profound, man!

Yeah, nice effects though. I see a lot of art like this and wonder wtf it's supposed to represent. Maybe I'm just not an artist, that's why I don't 'get it'.

I don't think we get it because as far as I can tell they put a bunch of things in a blender and then hit frappe'. Not my personal idea of deep quality.

And I've seen your stuff, you're more of an artist that 99% of these mooks...

You guys have got to see The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra...

You know you've got something down when you can even imitate its flaws.

Is that what the movie is about?

. . .

:(

I really don't like the new trends going around . . . microscopic text/exclusion layers/gradients seriously turn me off. >|

And some people manage to get all three into one icon. Amazing.

Yeah, it obviously bugs me, too.

I'm particularly proud of the line "beauty in the breakdown" being included in there, probably the most artisticly overused line in the past year, with no end in sight

You DID get that the image is a spoof, correct? Did the title not give it away?

Hee. Now I feel guilty for thinking it's actually really pretty, even though I laughed at the title. I wonder what my parents would say if I used this as my wallpaper...

Is it okay to ask what the teeny text says, even though I can't ask you through email because I can't send because hotmail is being poopy?
Frittersfritters on February 19th, 2005 02:27 am (UTC)
I deleted my text file of what it said because no one asked!! And it's okay to like it, I did put some effort into it, but yeah, it's mainly satire. As far as I can remember the text was stuff like "here's more of that tiny text everyone thinks is so damn super even though you can't read it. I can't believe you people like this shit..." That sort of thing.

Yeah, I'm going to hell...
Lisa Mariewhirligigged on February 19th, 2005 03:08 am (UTC)
Oh, I'm sure that making fun of wallpapers and teeny text isn't one of those truly horrible being-poked-to-distraction-by-hot-pokers unforgivable sins. It probably merits being poked by lukewarm sporks for all of eternity at the very most. ^_~
