Remember when your house was decorated with oodles of that inexpensive art hand crafted by tiny people at tiny tables? This is not that art. Sure, there was a time when inexpensive art involved macaroni and the machinations of a kindly elementary school teacher. There was also a time before... the Internet. I am not making this up!
The Internet is to art what unicorns are to hipsters - a brilliant symbiotic relationship born of opportunity and a bit of magical thinking. But there are no ivory towers here - just a whole lot of awesome. Yes, we need to find a new word for awesome.
