Phantastic works by Igor Skaletsky.

About to start the latest weekly film posts. Enjoy!
“An artist, like an activist, is expected to financially hobble herself. Purity is as important as survival. There’s a constant criticism for earning “too much.” But as we slash the social safety net, once basic things—a home, college, a dignified old age—become mirages. It’s near impossible to live the average American dream on the average American salary.Not talking about money is a tool of class war. A culture that forbids employees from comparing salaries helps companies pay women and minorities less. Ignoring the mercenary grit behind success leads to quasi-religious abundance gurus claiming you can visualize your way to wealth.”
COIFFURE LE BIRD BY SOUVEREIN
Souverein (tumblr / facebook) - “Free work done by the photographer Rene Mesman. They are a series of bird portraits done together with a hairstylist and an art-director. It was also shown in Volkskrant Magazine. Retouching and integration was done by Souverein.”
Owl / Crow / Falcon
“Getting people to care and want to learn about things that they don’t see as directly impacting their lives can be difficult. I believe that wrapping points and ideas up in pretty or exciting packages is just as valid a tactic as demonstrating in a public place with a sea of people. It’s also just as valid as highly intellectual debates about the small, intricate details of an issue using specialized vocabularies full of obscure words.”
“Instead, the artist’s personality becomes the sellable good. Attention acquired in new media can be leveraged to sell more inherently scarce goods and services, like teaching, lectures, concerts, and books. Aesthletes’ work becomes inseparable from the theatre of their own excessive labor.”

This is a zip file containing all five Deep Map Pilots in unflattened PSD (Photoshop) format. All layers I used during the creation of the images are included. These may not be usable by older versions of Photoshop (I use CS5).
These files are useful for those who want to pick apart my methods, anyone interested in printing something at home, and people who enjoy collecting really bloated files in order to bore and obfuscate federal investigators.
Pay what you want for these, including nothing. Sometimes you can’t spare even a dollar, but don’t let that stop you downloading and enjoying them.
I’d appreciate it if you didn’t sell my art for your own personal gain, I guess, but it’s not like Deep Map Pilots is such a hot property that you stand to get rich from bootleg t-shirts or whatever. I retain copyright, whatever that means, but it’s not like I need to say it for it to be true.
Actually I would wear the shit out of some Deep Map Pilot t-shirts; if you make some illegal pirate bootleg deep map pilot t-shirts, send me an extra-small pls ty.
