Cam may act like he has New York all figured out, but it’s becoming increasingly more clear that he’s only just begun. With a brand that has yet to make money, a job that’s more of an obligation and a love interest who’s not interested, Cam essentially has nothing more than his optimism. Combined with too much confidence, even that becomes a liability when he thinks Crisp is above doing a middle school graduation T-shirt for free. Thankfully, his dinner conversation with Lulu’s father turns this around. Despite his eccentricities, her father is a shining example of finding artistic success through earnestness. He sums up this idea when describing a successful painting of a severed pinky by saying, “Art works when it communicates the truth.” This lesson inspires Cam and Ben’s successful “Rich Kids Run Ish” design, bringing them one step closer to success. Even with this triumph, Cam’s evening is still spent pushing a stove down the sidewalk toward his new apartment in the projects. This may not fit the high-rolling, fedora-sporting image he likes to project, and it’s for the better. For Crisp’s art to work by communicating truth, its creators must start living more honestly themselves.
