Dear Sony Pictures (versus Clary Fray),
Also Known as “Transmedia and How You’re Doing It Wrong! - Part Two.One”
Hiya Sony Pictures. ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
I got comfort food! Refilled my coffee. Now, I know you’re more of a tea drinker. So, I got it just how you like it so you may want to sit up. No, seriously. I’m going to have to ask you to sit the fuck up.
FAIR WARNING; At times I’m gonna come across as a brat cuz I sorta got an invested interest. Smartest & safest bet is for you not to cut in. Seriously, Sony Pictures, you cut in, I might cut you. So, for the love of pie, Shut.Your.Gob.
Now that we’re back on track: Clary Fray. Clary Mother-Fucking Fray. Lets me explain in rabid detail why having Clary uploading art to http://pinterest.com/claryfrayart/ is hella-dumb.
We’re still coming at this with the delicious and incorporated pretense that maintaining Clary’s on-line Transmedia presence is to both interact with fans and preface of the film. Meaning, you’re Role-playing? We’ve previously reviewed what Transmedia is, Sony Pictures have you reviewed what RP-ing is… just checking.
Cool, cool, cool. Have you looked in to MMORPG? I think you might like it.
- Firstly: We’re gonna cut to the cock and bull that is pinterest.com. I am not knocking it. I have one, I like mine. It’s all good for what it is… which is little more than a glorified inspiration board!
Did you even read the About page!? http://about.pinterest.com/ My dear-dear friend Sony Pictures, whatever are you about?
As an artist, I am offended you thought this a refuge for a burgeoning artist. WHICH; Book 1; Act 1; Scene 1; Clary Fray is! Let’s briefly review.

Old-School Clary is insecure. We know that Pre-City of Bones, Clary goes to a weekly artist group but then fills bins with her sketches, while guiltlessly forcing Simon to hold uncomfortably positions for long bouts of time because getting that pose right matters so much more, Rome could burn around her freckled ears, etc! During Chapter Two Clary, having had busted her ass to save up money for classes at Tisch, pitches a fit when Jocelyn suddenly says “No”. Clary is livid one minute but switches on a dime to pine away staring at Jocelyn’s art, longing for that craft. This is a girl who is striving to find her distinct and skilled voice, NOT trying to pimply circulate circulate circulate like some twice-licked Popsicle! It takes a certain conceit that you Sony Pictures may have but our Clary Fray, as envisioned bellow, does not.

…Now Sony Pictures, babe, let us hold hands. Know that I may be getting loud here but I want you to how I’m not squeezing. Volume, yes but no heat in these words as I must say No Fucking Artist IN THE PLANET Would USE PINTEREST to SOLELY Host for THEIR BODY of Work!!
- Because you can’t get decent Constructive Criticism on a site where
- Your ONLY proper circulation RePost is to Twitter or Facebook?! I MEAN WTF? That Shit IS Not On!
- Recycling is so high and heavy its rift with thievery, no way of ascertaining ownership, safe-guarding/reporting/maintaining control. In the end, why would am artist bother when someone would repin their stolen work 30 seconds anyway, leading to the truest defect.
The only person who thinks pinterest is for illustrative art is people who are looking exclusively for pins and praise.
That is shallow man, fucking shallow. Clary has many Many lovely delicious succulent faults but shallow? meh, debatable. About her art? No, mother-fucker that is NOT one of them!
Yeah, I know that Popsicle analogy didn’t make sense, but I got caught up in a thing and I Just Have A Lot Of Feelings……. should probably stop let go of your hand now, all the better to fan myself with.
Dudebro, Sony Pictures I’m not hurting your feelings am I? Cool! Cuz as one artist to another artist, surely you’re open to ConCrit toward the betterment of self, etc. — unless this meager forum choose of pinterest is a deliberate low-ball effort and not the misreading of culture confluence (that of Transmedia, cuz we are talking about Transmedia remember). I mean, you are supposed to be this big muckity-muck studio & all. Sony Pictures should be in the know, you kno? Cuz the point of it is, if you want it to work for you, you should work at it.
This here Internets, we’re a trust circle (of sorts, even haters, they wouldn’t hate so much if they didn’t secretly love. although I suspect they love with hate). Sony Pictures, if you fall into our arms with more open abandon I promise, we will catch you. All of you. Even the lumpy bits.
Speaking of ’lumpy bits’ lets talking about Clary’s art. rather, the consistency. rather, the lack of consistency A) within your Art B) within your Art’s Art.
Tailgating on the theme; the fast and furious fails of your pinterest interest. your provided artwork is inconsistent. I know what you’re thinking I am over thinking… and you are right. So, Tra-la-la-La! through Part A) if you like but Part B) not so much—
A) ”within your Art”; You are making a concentrated effort to be youthful (note: how I said youthful, avoiding the phrase “dumb-it-down” but then said it in parenthesis like it won’t then be offensive. Yeah, I’m classy like that.)
Okay, I know I’m coming straight off as to ranty. I recommend you nom more while we, as some would say, “let the work speak for itself”
Side Note: NO On-Line Artist in their right mind puts uploads anything Unsigned. I say in their “Right Mind” so I’ll leave the statement up to you to defend. (by this I mean an OBVIOUS sig and only one piece up there has it. just what the merry fuck!)
B) ”within your Art’s Art”; Leaving that there lets back track a sec; I’ll just point at it out-right, do these two look like they’re made by the same artist? Not only is it “Inconsistent” within the stylization of pinterst!Clary but you do realize its meant to match movie!Clary.
While the images are not 100% to perfection clear it is clear enough to see, but behind the obsessive over-use of “Angelic Power” runes, there are portraits & bits of illustration. The strokes and style aren’t remotely matching. I know you don’t think this is important, relevant or even noticeable.
Well, whatever I noticed. If I did others did. (Well, maybe others didn’t but I Still Did! Augh, it’s like lettuce in my teeth!)
Sony Pictures you’re right, it isn’t relevant. The inconsistencies aren’t going to change the plot now is it? Yes Sony Pictures it’s your story in the end. The audience they’re just borrowing it… for past and future generations, for hundreds of millions of dollars but whatevs. No, no, I’m sure you’re right Sony Pictures. I’m just getting bitter and nasty now. I don’t have a right to poke at your business.
Come on Sony Pictures, lets share a piece of pie, snuggle on the couch, while channel surfing. That’ll calm the spirits. Oh, What is this I spy… A value of films being consistent even in the little things? Dear Lord In Heaven I believe that is!
It looks as if featured characters that draws, drawing, featuring their art draws you in. Lemme show you.
e.g. Stoker – Main Character “India” played by Mia Wasikowska makes detailed illustrations, this then becomes the films poster Art, also a key affecting piece featured in the theatrical trailer.
e.g. The Brothers Bloom – wherein con-man brothers, played by Adrien Brody & Mark Ruffalo scheme a wealthy recluse played by Rachel Weisz out of her bajillionz. Look how pretty its poster is.
Look, when Adrien Brody’s character plots their next scheme at the bar, whilst love-stricken he doodles all over the back of it, How cute!
Wassat fandom, there Dear Geeky fandom, The Made Shop fans and possible hitRECorders. All of those works were made by Zack Johnson (http://zacharyjohnson.goodsie.com/the-brothers-bloom-poster) A constant artist through despite the film having nothing at all to do with the characters being illustrators of any sort or the artwork having anything to do with the plot! What a phenomenal case of random happenstance!!
In these films Art is of no import to the premise or plot yet look at the long lasting sensory impression these details leave you.
Meanwhile, Sony Pictures, Art is biggun in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (2013) film as you well know. I wonder if this is an affliction of being ‘too big to fail’?
Yeah, what a spectacular missed opportunity of FAIL WHALE! proportions on your part. You done wrong, kid. You know it. You knowed you know it! Aww, Don’t be like that Sony Pictures. Lets hug it out.
There could have been a very different bonus trailer floating about, what with both Jocelyn and Clary, you know existing, art, magic and things! Surely I’m not the only one who braingasms on this? Come on, lets all sit here and braingasm together shall we!

Side-Side Note: on pinterest, Clary is supposedly repinning pins from Michaels. [http://pinterest.com/claryfrayart/art-supplies/]
I know you can’t see it right now but I’m making a face. It’s my judgy face. Not Blick! [http://www.dickblick.com/] [http://pinterest.com/BlickArt/] Not even Pearl Paint [http://www.pearlpaint.com/]
Clary is meant to be living IN New York you realize. Clary is meant to be the daughter of an actual substantial artist. Clary is also meant to not want to be aim for the middle, be mediocre and/or suck monkey nuts, in my humble opinion. I mean you can go to Michael’s if you’re into that whole primary school, macramé motif, it’s all good. Not judgin’… with my judging face, my judging eyes & my judging judgments.
“Transmedia and How You’re Doing It Wrong! - Part Two.2” to come soon, I just sincerely believe we could do with more noms. be right back, kissus.
