This is an idea that is so simple and so brilliant, it makes my head want to explode.
Basically you just take any ole piece of artwork, and zhush it up by adding some clever comment or phrase with some stick on letters. BOOM. All of the sudden you take your lame-o, flea market painting from "no way" to " OH, HEEEEEEYYYYYYY!"
I think this partly appeals to me so much because I just don't consider myself an artist at all...and I've always wanted to be. Even though I guess writing is kinda considered an art, I don't really count that. I can't paint, I can't draw, I can't sculpt and so I've always kept myself busy with non-artsy, but kind of closely related creative things: flower arranging, stained glass, needlepoint, interior design.
But with this project, I could combine my ability to be a smartass with my secret desire to be an artist, and that's kind of killer.
On the flipside, I guess it *is* kind of a dick move to take someone else's piece of art and mess it all up with my snarky commentary, but after careful consideration: I think in the case of flea market paintings I just don't give a rat's ass.
Now I wanna go buy a shitload of ugly paintings and go to town.
