Thursday…July 9th…A Few Thoghts for Today

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          tictac                                                                                                                                                                              

I realize because this says “Limited Edition”…there is a minor discrepancy as to the collectible nature of a plastic  box of Tic Tacs ……over my lifetime I have seen things designed and marketed as “Collectibles”….the idea is these items will be worth a great deal more money someday (hopefully while the collector is alive)….although based on the consumer mentality we have….everyone has collected the exact same  collectibles…left them in the original box…on a special self in the basement under strict climate control….etc……I collected all of the Gatorade…NFL and AFL football logos that were on selected bottle caps….these things now are worth a great deal of money…but had they originally been designed to be worth a great deal of money in the future…there would be millions of them out there and they’d be worth nothing….I like this marketing ….

I’d like to somehow find a way to make my paintings as desirable…say as an empty box of Tic Tacs…maybe I could approach the Tic Tac people….and give them my pitch….I find it amazing that people will collect mass produced…plastic… Star Wars toys…or every give away toy at McDonald’s….with hopes that these items will equate to millions later down the road….I know some very talented artists that…given a gross of Tic Tacs or one of their paintings….I’d have to go with the….painters….as long as it was on the box of “Limited Edition” Tic Tacs……or Luke Sky Walkers Cape….or maybe the Hamburgler’s mask……
