Pete Lewis on Artists and Tangible Community

Malcolm tipped me off to this great article from Phoresia.org on surfer/zine producer Pete Lewis (of Foulweather). Over the next few days I'll be posting my four favorite quotes/ideas.

"In this current age of mass communication, ease of travel and global interconnectedness, it is hard to shine as an artist. Perhaps, in a more ideal world, where ‘community’ actually meant something, artists would have an easy time proving their worth to the fifty or so people they are ‘tangibly’ connected to. In other words, I think the essence of DIY as being primarily responsible to your immediate community."
