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.

All Current Sketches Going To Instagram

As this site gets worked out, character sketches will be getting posted to Instagram on a regular basis. Be sure to check out that page to see all the imagery as it gets developed. They *may* get archived here on the blog at some point. http://instagram.com/transcendentpress - Mr Benja -

This Website Sucks!

I know...I know. This is not at all what you were expecting from a world class operation like Transcendent Press, but the old website had to get axed. It was causing problems and costing me money. So I've stripped everything down to a much more bare bones format so that I can focus on actually creating the good shit. If you need more, you can visit us on social media for now: Instagram.com/TranscendentPress Facebook.com/TranscendentPress Twitter.com/TranscendentPRS - Mr Benja -

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.
