Well, I've been observing some things and I've been thinking about some questions -
Do you buy art? I don't mean all the time, but have you ever? Would you rather buy a product with the same art on it, instead of a real piece of artwork?
like, say you saw a new artist selling his/her work (insert any artist of you choice here), and has original works for sale as well as products of his own design.
And, for example, for argument's sake, say that you really liked a drawing of his/her. BUT you also really liked a shirt with another awesome design. AND they both cost the same (ex:$100), and it's all you have to spend. Which would you chose? The art work or the product?
