Web Series: Art Or Shit?

Posted by on Nov 6, 2021 in Art or Shit? (2009-2011), Web Series Highlights

After answering an ad on the Chicago Craigslist site in spring 2009 for an unpaid art co-host position, interviewing and getting the job, I was well on my way! The short-lived web series was based on the other co-host, Lorenzo Ross’ (Zomatic) daytime employer of being an art package handler at a UPS mail shop in Chicago somewhere. Zomatic would take photos of the art he handled and together we critiqued them from there. Zomatic’s approach was purely art critic, while I took the non-poetic approach of local yokel average Joe who knew nothing about art. And there was more truth to that then, as opposed to now. The series itself ran for a total of nine episodes, of which I co-hosted five episodes, from 2009 to 2011.
