Complete Strangers Review Some Transcendent Press Stories

What you're seeing is two images of me being your favorite creep photographer. 😅 So here's what happened: I was attending The 4th on 4th Artwalk in Long Beach; I was out there as a writer + artist handing out story samples. I met some great people and we would chat up who I could, but most people just took my sampler and politely kept walking.

I handed one couple my Transcendent Press sampler and bid them a good night. A few minutes later, I see them standing inside a local shop checking out my mini-story. (See how engrossed they are?) Totally didn't mean to get the stalker vibe with this photo, but when you see the chance, you gotta take it! 

Later, on their way back home, they returned to my table to thank me for the story and to get on my email list! Complete Stranger Test = PASS!

Thanks, Deejay. Thanks, Ross. And thanks to everyone else I met on Friday. .

Should Artists Cash In On The Story Of The Month?

I used to have a problem with people "cashing in" on the current wave of social discourse or media hype, and I still do. BUT since I've started engaging with more people more often (thank extroverts), I've come to a much better understanding of the art that takes part in genuine discussions with the public. In fact, the BEST artists do it without cashing in. They're able to channel the vibe of what everyone is thinking/feeling and add relevancy. This is why pop art spoke to me many years ago before Get in that conversation and be genuine. It can be dangerous/scary, but it's fully in line with being an artist. Just beware of being an artist that's only there to cash in. That's for bums. "Several Antiracist Books Are Selling Out" "Social Media Comic Book Sales Soar During Pandemic"

Etsy Store Is Open

Along with this site, I have decided to open up an Etsy store to go along with this it. As you can probably tell, this is working out to be a little more homegrown and "regular" than my other projects. That makes sense because this project is based around writing and zines.

Store Opening In February!

People have wondered how they might go about getting their hands on some of the zines, stories, shirts, and prints that I'll be offering. I'm here to say that will be a thing this February. I'll come back later to remind you. In the meantime, I have to rebuild this site from scratch. That'll happen over time, and you can check back here to see the progress and the updates. Thx for your patience. - Mr Benja -
