13.17: What Writers Get Wrong, with Jamahl Crouch
Your Hosts: Brandon, Mary, Dan, and Howard, with Jamahl Crouch
Jamahl Crouch (Illusmm1 on Instagram) joined us at the GenCon Indy Writers Symposium to talk about what writers get wrong about street art. Jamahl is many things, and one of those is “street artist.”
We discuss the differences between graffiti and street art, where things like commissioned murals fit into the scene, and how the societal pressures (read: “it’s not legal to paint on this wall”) affect the form.
Homework: Go watch The Get Down (available on Netflix)
Thing of the week: Have a look at Jamal’s art on Instagram! Illusmm1.
