I have no idea how long this will last, but if you move quickly and head to Michel Gondry’s website, he’ll draw your portrait for $19.95. That is, if you submit a photo of yourself, in a couple months time you’ll be the proud owner of a caricature of yourself done by the very, very talented Mr. Gondry, who if you aren’t aware, has directed some stellar films, like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Be Kind Rewind, among other projects…Sweet deal, hurry up, because the piece of shit you picked up at auction last year is worth 1/100 of the money you thought it was.
And: more from Vin and Jay: Southside 412 Episode 2 featuring all the art you can handle from the likes of John Ross and Bill Wessel.

I saw this posted a little while, and didn’t post it out of laziness…So, now I’m gonna post it without being able to remember any of the specifics from the original article I saw, which was quite informative…So, to assuage at least a smidge of guilt over my creative sloth, I’ll give you a little of the info that I can remember: “Adobe Photoshop CS5 concept, designed to look like a real artist’s set-up. Created for ad group (fill in name of company I can no longer remember, even though I took a trip to their website and all).”
…just what I need t be pushing…Satoshi Minakawa.
If you like Damien Hirst, but can’t quite afford to part with a hundred million, maybe just kick down 75K or so and pick up one of 50 skulls painted using his scientifically-proven spin painting technique…this amazing technique can also be applied to denim. Just messing with you, Damien, cheer up, I think the skulls look nice.
