    Default How to Make Art

    Fascinating Instructables article, somewhat satirical, but I do think relevant: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-art./

    Okay, but how do I make people give me money?

    Also, am I a real artist if I don't smoke?

    And you also have to be dressed in a kind of cool way - the most important thing being having a cool hat.

    What if I get a monkey and make him wear a cool hat? Would people pay money to see this?

    You'd be an organ grinder

    Wouldn't I need a barrel organ? And don't they cost money? That's going in the wrong direction, I want people to give me money. Or perhaps you'd be willing to donate an organ (for the purposes of art), then I'd grind that monkey all day.

    Any fool can make art, but only the really good fools know where to find the monkeys.

    I wish there were more organ grinders... I'd be willing to donate an mechanical organ for the cause. I'd like to see a great revival that thrives for centuries and stands as the artistic testament to our times.

    The best I can do is a Casio keyboard on one of the organ presets run through a Pignose at full gain with the arpeggiator set on RANDOM. I might be able to strategically shave a cat to make it look like a monkey but then I'll have all the hassle with the RSPCA and what not.

    You first have to be an artist; then you make stuff :-)

    There are a multitude of ways to become an artist. Here are two of my favorite methods.

    Method 1
    Step 1: Buy a blank canvas

    Method 2
    Step 2: Steal a urinal from a bathroom
