“(continued from Common denominators, part 1)
Given that business is ultimately the means by which we are able to afford our own time to consume, to create, and fill all the spaces between, it is necessary to understand that without a thing (a skill, a product, a service, etc.) that is either of use or want to someone else, that we are left without the means to exchange our time for theirs.
We are ultimately dealing with the currency of time, all things governed by such. This stated, time seems rather an important, albeit abstract element to leverage. Additionally, the exchange rate can be quite unfair in reference to the time of one person as compared to another. To say that all time were equal equates more to communism than capitalism, and does not apply to a world connected…”
”Breakfast of the Undesirable” by Sterling Hundley from the “Blue Collar/White Collar" monograph published by Adhouse Books.
Facing a home remedy of sheep dung tea for his ailments, a young boy refuses to drink the putrid brew. Growing weaker each day, he finally gives in, begging for anything that might ease his illness.
Shown hear drinking sheep dung tea, eating crow and humble pie.
From a story and illustration first created for Virginia Living magazine.
"Bigfoot Hunter"; perception vs. reality from Sterling Hundley’s Blue Collar/White Collar monograph.
"If life moved at a steady speed and constant direction, then art would not survive. We need only lead the beast with the proper trajectory to take it down. But life lives, and we must choose to take it or to tame it. Art is us run-through-the-world and the world-run-through-us."

“Illustration is Blue Collar – both pervasive and accessible. It is art that must survive in spite of commerce and function. There is a desperation to the thing; illustration that doesn’t work doesn’t eat. Given limitations in time to communicate and the space in which to do it, illustration must answer a question.
Fine Art is White Collar – reclusive with airs of mystery and sophistication. It is pursued. Given the abundance of space in which it is viewed and the time which it is afforded, fine art has the luxury of asking a question.”
