Just a reply to all the wallpaper requests i get here at DA.

I really sometimes get fed up with how the digital realm is now reliant on the materialistic approach to art.
Sure, i love to decorate my desktop sometimes, but just how much does this detract or influence just whats in our heads?
The same artwork sitting there... is it influencing me and you to think of certain concepts?

And does it limit our imaginations?

Sure sometimes it can also inspire... yet for how long?

It's just a vent, but it's how i feel to such things... I truely hate making wallpapers.

Enjoy & Destroy

I like this a lot. At first it only caught my eye because of its stark appearance (white on black, large font, and use of "FUCKING"), but the message forced me to think about the purpose of the artist (and his art) and contrast these to that of the desktop background. See the comment I left above on LeonaWindrider's comment from a while back.

Just a thought: if you're getting a good amount of requests to make wallpaper out of your art, perhaps you might take it as a compliment to your art, rather than an annoyance.

I realise that:
It's the detraction from the art itself that i worry about.

:iconleonawindrider:
LeonaWindrider Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2007
I can understand that -- I always figured a "no, I don't have time to do that" or "no I don't do wallpapers" would be a more appropriate than getting snarky with people who like your art enough to bother to ask you. But that's just me.

bindyeye Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2007
Lol... who's getting snarky?
You think i haven't replied to fan posts or threads before?
It's really all about finding the time to do them...

And i think you are detracting away a lil on my main points now.
And concentrating on the hard truth... That i hate wallpapers.

Meh, I'm just calling it as I see it after reading the description that you wrote. Trust me, the fact that you hate wallpapers is pretty clear, but so is the fact that you've just slapped the people that ask you about them in the face. I really have no idea who you are, and just happened to find the picture while browsing, but I was just a little appalled someone could be so mouthy with people who apparently just like your art.

I mean, jeez...all you really had to do was just say "no" when you get a request. A liiiitle customer service goes a long way...

bindyeye Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2007
You keep repeating yourself and it's obvious your a lil confused.
And if you'd like me to reply with a lame comment...
The answer is "NO".

Now thats customer service for ya. ;)

Not confused at all -- just not really impressed with your people skills. But it's your gig not mine, so have a nice day.

I think you misinterpret the deviation; at no point did he say that he treats individual requests the way this wallpaper presents its message. I got the impression that instead of ranting at every person that requested a wallpaper, or in fact being rude in the slightest, he was venting it in this work.

I also feel that there's something wrong with your talk of "customer service" - as an artist, one exists to create, not to serve. At first, I was a little shocked by the message as well, but I think the themes behind it are valid ones. How should an artist respond to the commercialization of his or her work as would happen in the case of a wallpaper? An artist's service to the viewer is to stretch their mind, to offer something different - a new perspective, a new idea, an insight. A wallpaper is background, it's always there. One tends to become desensitized to it, to ignore it, even, beyond the simplest of aesthetics arising from its shapes, colours, and flow. An artist's service to the "customer", then, is ostensibly to object to the use of their work, which should spark thought, as an ordinary desktop background - or as background of any form incongruous with the art's meaning.

To me, this deviation is not at all about "people skills," rather about the danger of art losing its meaning.

..That's just my :twocents:, anyhow ;)
