Do people say keeping it real any more? Do I care? I thought this was cool. Leave it to a Chicano artist to break the rules and keep it fuckin’ real. Underground artist Neck Face, who was a bona fide Comicon artist this year with a booth y todo, posted up outside the con (by a dumpster no less!) for his fans who couldn’t make it inside. To me, that’s what it’s all about.
I hate the goddamn glitz and glam and fame, marketing, celebrity whoredom bullshit that comes with things like the SD Comicon now. Apparently so does Neck. LA Weekly once called him an ‘artist who will never sell out’. I respect the shit outta that!!
I just wanted to share this because it reminds me of myself in a I-would-do-that kinda way. Not that I’m famous or that I would ever get invited to such a thing, but to keep it real and make it so that regular people could get an autograph or buy something – I think that’s pretty fuckin’ cool. Props to Nasty Neck and artists who refuse to shine shoes. \m/
