For more than 30 years, I have dedicated myself to the visual language of shill earning my stripes as a foot soldier under industry mavericks. As a grunt, part of my job was to get visible ink for the virtually un-ink-able. That rhythmless tap dancer, the milquetoast actor, the self-proclaimed Bar-mitzvah photographer all whom you have read about in glowing terms and ﬁnd yourself wondering why?
You can thank pimps like me.
But even the most artistic pimp can't turn tricks fast enough to satiate today's media ravenous. The countless brands, businesses and brothers who pay top dollar for the luxury of promotion.
Art Pimp is my tall tale. A statement on the dark and desperate need to see our names in print. Personal war stories are laid bare in the gossip-slung world of those who buy and sell. Not a superficial tell-all. More like a prepared state of readiness for you tenderfoots on patrol.
