Thinkpieces have hit critical mass enough to convince me that we are in the age of the ‘nerd’. If this is true I need to start thinking about my art as including the nerd at least in part or total.
But I do not want to tailor my art to the nerd I see in marketing terms as a devoted brand target, but perhaps the ideal nerd I have never met, who resides with the locovore, the counter-revolutionary saboteur, the hipster, the flâneur, the helicopter parent, the yuppie, the B-girl, the mad monk, the indigo child, the false doctor, the cosmopolitan, the night owl, the banker, and the fool who bargained his soul to the devil, and all of the other face cards in the lesser cultural arcana.
I have hit on the nerdiest medium: the dakimakura (the body pillow that nerds marry? I’ve never really seen one) as this perfect piece of ‘content’. Dakimakura with all my OCs (original characters) from my IPs(intellectual properties). I will draw these with my HHs(human hands). And they can be yours through 8 payments of 8 dollars. But fuck paypal and any other p2p payment options; find me in person and pay me 8 times. Thank you.
