when an artist wants to show you their art
or a writer wants you to read what they’ve written
it’s quite often an expression of trust
because a poem or a story or a painting are often things that come from the heart
little pieces of the artists themselves
and if they’re willing to share it with you
you should appreciate it
Like that kickstarter campaign where a guy raised 51K to publish his book, then burned all of the copies as “art”. Was he trustworthy, or a fag? The more you know.
