“What People Think I Do / What I Really Do” is a series of visual charts depicting a range of preconceptions associated with a particular field of occupation or expertise. Unlike image macro series that are based on singular stereotypes like Advice Animals, this series compares varying impressions about one’s profession held by others, self-image and the often mundane reality of the job.
The original instance of the series was uploaded by artist Garnet Hertz via his Facebook page on February 2nd, 2012. The chart summarized various preconceived notions and generalizations that are associated with being a contemporary artist.
