A humorous look at the high cost of meddling
Recently I decided to take my own good advice and think about refreshing my sadly out-of-date and neglected art website which I use to promote my alter ego Lennon Art. Pay attention to the word ego here because I’ll come back to it.
Artist’s websites are notorious for being awful at best. There are of course millions of bad sites on the web in every sector, but artists really seemed to have taken this to a whole new level. Search around and you’ll find some wonderful examples of incomprehensible crazy concepts, a lack of regard for appropriate typography, an ignorance of accessibility and usability issues and all nicely underpinned by an overall embarrassing amateurism. Sorry if that sounds too harsh. There are of course many exceptions out there but I wouldn’t be able to make my point clearly if I was being rational and fair and not chance a little rant for literary effect!
