Artistic License

Artistic License

Artist and culture jammer TradeMark G. often invokes the concept of Artistic License when asked, for instance, “Why on earth did you paint that toaster purple and install it on the ceiling?” or “Why do you drive a hearse that looks like a zebra?” He recently decided to back up his artistic cred with an actual license, so now he’s all official. He’s selling similar licenses so you, too, can back up your claim of being a misunderstood artist with legitimate-looking documentation.

If you live outside the U.S. and need a license for your own country–or if you just don’t want to spend the 20 bucks–I expect you could do something similar with photo editing software and a laminating machine (available at copy shops like Kinko’s).

    I have got to get me one of those! Mine would have to be a poetic license though, I’m art-impared.
