lots of second hand and trade shops, my apartment is on the same block as buffalo exchange, crossroads, and red light.
If I’m going to ignore my budget, I’ll shop at needsupply, american apparel, sometimes pixiemarket.
my favorite IRL store in portland is “palace” which I highly recommend if you’re in the area. their tag line is “curating the coveted wardrobe” - has both second hand and new, in so many beautiful hues.
are artistic experiences normally not personal? I suppose it’s true that in the majority of my work I shy away from being overly confessional because I think that kind of work can to an extent bring in notes of spectacle and narcissism (then again what artwork is neither spectacle nor narcissistic).
the most personal work I have made would probably be the ‘no monument’ series that used iPhone imagery of texts detailing the circumstances of my mother’s death via twenty years of alcoholism. this work showed at ‘muscle beach’ gallery alongside artist em young. after the show opening I felt so much defeat (as many viewers did not understand the context or implications of the work) that I drank too much, and on my way home collapsed on the sidewalk in a fit of tears, screaming. em helped me up. thanks em, meant a lot.

artost is a hybrid form of cabbage. first I suggest reincarnation to become new life form, repeat until cabbage. second, to become a famous produce you will probably have to be larger than normal or an unexpected color, being able to accomplish both is highly desirable. the fame you have will not be celebrity-style fame, more like roadstop-attraction fame. so third, be prepared for disappointment.
tl;dr - learn to spell and/or stop being a troll and/or be the world’s biggest troll (therefore emulating Damien Hirst)
