It just depends what you feel is appropriate for your practice, really. If you’re a graffiti artist, or have a really shitty name, then a pseudonym is probably the way to go. Just remember that once your career transcends the internet, people will call you by your pseudonym in REAL LIFE. Play that scenario out in your head, and if it makes you cringe, pick a different pseudonym, or go with your name.
Hey, thanks for the kind words! Why yes I do have a girlfriend, whom I love very much. She’s also the wicked cool street artist BRAIN FOETUS, who makes wicked cool art such as this:
You should all go follow her at brainfoetus.tumblr.com, or on her Instagram which is also called brainfoetus but I dunno how to link to it because it’s a phone thing and I don’t entirely understand it, but it’s full of sweet art.
