DescriptionCelebrity television may be killing us slowly. With all of the global problems facing us today, that jeopardize the very future of humankind, why do we waste so much time on escapist amusements? Why don't we all get to work, righting the wrongs of previous generations? We're lazy, I guess, and after all, sex and celebrity gossip is so much more interesting than global warming.*A phrase coined by author Neil Postman in his 1985 book 'Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show BusinessThis image has been modified from the original Indian ink drawing. It is now solid black, so that my original penmanship is no longer visible. This image can also be viewed with a bevel, which gives it added depth. Grin and Grit 2009
Benjamin Kai Reimer-Watts, Wroclaw Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement I am a 22-year-old young man who wants to build a career as a full-time artist. I recently graduated from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Nova Scotia, Canada, and am now working to set up shop! Please feel free to check out a wider selection of my hand drawn graphic design work on my homepage, www.grinandgrit.com. Over time I hope to have the majority of it available for sale as artist prints on this site. My artist statement is also available on the site, as well as links to retail outlets currently carrying my work. Please be patient as it will take some time before this site is fully functional. You can also contact me with any comments etc. through that site.
