Everyone Needs an Art Friend
We’ve all been there. That moment you realise you have no idea what the person speaking to you is actually saying. You can hear the sounds and syllables perfectly well, and yet you can't quite catch the thread. You have absolutely no idea.
You nod. You smile. You guess?
Obviously this can happen on a kind of spectrum. Sure, someone may in fact be talking absolute gibberish. Alternatively though, someone may just have a far more sophisticated understanding of what ever it is you’re both talking about. Leaving you feeling a mere dilettante.
You start to feel stranded, feet stuck to the floor, beads of sweat form on a worried brow. You look around for help but nobody comes. You sink into the quicksand on the island of the unknowing, naked in the burning light of the intellect stood before you.
The best thing to do in this moment is to just say hey, I have no flippin’ clue what you’re on about.
Can you explain it in a different way?
Could you dumb it down a little?
Here are some crayons.
But most of us don’t. Most of us make a quickly forgotten mental note to have a google later.
It’s okay. We all do it. We’ve all been there.
Well fear no more!
Art Friend to the rescue.
Throwing a rope into your soon to be subsumed by sand hand. A translating medium and guide to help you traverse from the island of unknowing to the shining silver seas of inform.
Everyone’s Art Friend are a team of artists, assembled by Shona Bland, who say “hey, we are not scary, come and talk to us”.
We were super happy to collaborate with Shona aka Eveyone’s Art Friend in supporting their launch party.
For the launch we provided cans of our impeccably good E1 Brew Co. beers to be enjoyed by fellow Art Friend lovers.
However, and this is the exciting part, between us we created some properly decent looking cans.
You should definitely head over to her website to find out more!
