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.

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 -

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 -
