A is for Artist: A

There’s a peculiar syndrome among artists that parallels the discussions of many a record store clerk. “Oh you like, ‘The Bloody Muggily Wumps’? Well you know they got their sound from this Swedish garage band from the seventies, and if you like them, you might like ‘Muppet Rash,’ they’re out of Athens.”

Amongst artists “have you heard” becomes “have you seen.” Depending on whose chin is wagging, you might come away with the names of a couple of Argentinian comic artists, a slew of nineteenth century naturalist painters, or someone’s favorite Japanese printmaker.

In no particular order, other than alphabetical, we present to you this feature about artists who help power our pencils.

[Let’s begin with A.]

A is for Artist: Z

A is for Artist: Z by Teetering Bulb

The end. That’s it, here it is, we’ve arrived, we’ve come to Z here in the A is for Artist series. From now on you’ll have to dig up new artists for yourselves. Perhaps you’re worried; how will you feed your eyes? They’ll go thin and fall out. One will roll under the couch and get covered in hair. It’s partner, you catch, but now you’re doomed to hold it in your palm forever, like a witch in a greek myth. Don’t fret, we’ve been addicted a long, long time, and our eyes remain plump and happy. What we’ve shared is just the beginning. A rabbit hole down to the center of the earth and back. Well that last bit is a lie, I don’t think you can get back. No matter, down here it’s warm with company.

A is for Artist: Y

A is for Artist: Y

As we near the very end of our journey through the alphabet (only one more left!) some of you may have noticed a slight itching in the back of your eyes. Maybe you’ve felt hunger pains, not in your belly, but at the midpoint of your head. That’s where your visual cortex is found and that hunger signals the beginning stages of art addiction. Other symptoms include a compulsive need to discover all the names of teachers and friends of a particular well-known artist, exploding bookcases due to the weight of too many art books, and a deep knowledge of auction houses and their scheduled public viewings. Lastly, hives.

Don’t worry, the addiction is relatively benign and plenty of support groups exist. Just remember, it’s a scavenger hunt which has no list and never ends.
