At Yuri’s Night Bay Area, I was talking to TradeMark G. of The Evolution Control Committee and he showed me his “Artistic License”. Yes, Mark has created a realistic looking, laminated ID card that he can now show off when he is questioned about his “art”. In fact, for $20 he will issue you your own US Artistic License.
Now when I show up at art openings, I just flash my ID — I’m an artist! More free wine, please! Even at clubs I present my license as my identification… because, by gum, I’m an artist, just the kind of artist who would be fully licensed. Although this is not legal identification in the government’s eyes, I have presented it on many occasional to security personnel who want “valid ID”. More times than not, they take it! So, it must be valid.
