    Silly stuff..... but why not?

    Fired up by a covo on irc where I wondered if Mr H Bosch (nah, not even going to TRY to spell his name) was the world's first concept artist.

    H Bosch c 1450-1560

    He would have been commissioned by the Church to do this stuff. Personally, I'm amazed that he wasn't burned as a heretic. Google him, and you'll see what I mean. Just imagine that H Bosch was a concept studio in those days, and ole HB himself was the art director.

    I wonder what he would have given his apprentices as a brief? Anybody want to have a guess? Cookie to the best try,....

    I like comparing him to Dali, but of course, most art historians I know shudder at the thought. (it's not that they don't like Dali, but they consider the religious symbolism present in Bosch as biblical not psychological, yada yada, bla bla bla...)

    I imagine him calling a meeting, dishing out the doughnuts and coffee and saying, "Hey, guys. The Holy Father has a problem with the amount of sinners we have around these days, and he wants us to design a health warning that will scare the crap out of them. Bernie? What's your thinking on this? Any ideas? Gotta make it punchy."
