This week I’ve become particularly obsessed with Society6 (www.society6.com), a website where thousands of artists have their work reproduced into prints, iPhone covers and t-shirts – to name a few of their products. It’s all reasonably priced and I have gotten lost in the millions of different types of art available, as I imagine where it would all go in my house. Having no money has presented a small problem, so I’ve had to settle for mentally buying everything rather than physically procuring anything for myself. But rest assured, once I have a job I will be placing a rather large order and decking myself out in Society6 head to toe to wall to phone.
The art ranges from pop culture such as Sherlock‘s Irene Adler to abstract prints, humorous cartoons (as seen above) and stunning photography. My particular favourite is the print below, entitled Leo, and I fully intend to get the whole set once I can afford it. What is the point in buying something that even the local department store produces by the bulk a la Andy Warhol style Audrey Hepburn prints, when you could support an independent artist without breaking the bank? Very much up my street.
