Is your artist image adding or subtracting the cool? Part 1

Last month in Esquire along with a brilliant Dizzee Rascal interview there were a series of 3 awesome double page adverts for the fashion house Dunhill; as part of their ‘Voices’ campaign.

They were awesome on several levels and I thought they served as a great way of pointing out a few key lessons in how you as an artist can express what you stand for, sell your image, and exhibit a level of quality, without ever directly stating it.  Along with offering some great wisdom for us all to learn.

Over the next week I’m going to post them up here for you guys to read, consider, and think how you can learn from them. Then I will offer you lostinmusik‘s interpretation of what they can offer you as a growing artist, to establish yourself as a creative force. Going to  start with the first advert featuring a guy named Charlie Siem; a bit of a virtuoso violinist playing some cool sounds with his instrument, he also seems a pretty cool guy to boot.

After such cool thoughts, it seems only right we let you hear a little of the guy himself with this cool introduction on YouTube.
