In an effort to get more people talking about the art, the New York Times and BuzzFeed have teamed up to create a digital billboard that features a cartoon of a woman, captioned “What is drawing?” and featuring a person with a signature “bouncy ass.”
The billboard has already been widely viewed, and is currently up on the internet for people to find out what kind of person this is.
But it’s just one piece of the story of the art that the creators of the poster want to tell.
“We are all the cartoon characters,” said Matt Smith, one of the artists behind the billboard.
“What we are trying to show is that drawing is not just about the person, it’s about the idea.”
“I’ve been drawing for the last 30 years,” said Smith.
“It’s been something that I’ve been trying to do my whole life.
I’m very happy to have this opportunity to help people talk about drawing.”
The Times and the BuzzFeed are calling the poster “Bouncy Ass” and are asking for help to promote the idea of “making the world a better place.”
The New York Public Library will donate $25,000 to the effort.
“We are the creators and we’re not going to get the money,” Smith said.
“The artist, I think, has the right to do what he wants.
But we have to make sure people understand that, even if we make a million dollars a day, we can’t make this happen if we don’t talk about the people that are behind it.”
The creators say they are working on getting a billboard made up in a different city so the billboard can be seen by people across the world.
“What we want to do is give people the chance to connect with us and to hear about the work that we’re doing,” Smith told Mashable.
“A lot of the work is very personal, very personal to me.
And I think that that’s the beauty of it.
It’s not just for the money, it has a very human quality to it.
And it has an element of a celebration of the people behind it.
So we think that’s something that’s important to us, and we hope that people can come see it.”
