Art in the Streets at MOCA.

Beauties by old favorites and gems by new friends. Way too much for one trip, thankfully we’ve got all summer to go back for more.



Illustration and  animation from the New Yorker for a previously unreleased Josh Ritter song. If you aren’t down to watch the whole thing (which you should be, so just watch it), at least read the write up underneath.


Caravaggio! Who knew? Bar fights are so much cooler with swords.


Edward Hopper and friends, including Mr. Bellows’ boxers. All at the Whitney.


Oh, man. So I’ve never been shy about my affection for procedural dramas.

This is just a section of a bigger piece called Camping by Brandon Bird, who curated an entire show entitled These Are Their Stories. Each piece is based on a one-line episode synopsis of Law and Order, and they are fantastic.

I don’t know how I missed this show, but I’m seriously irritated that I did.

You can see more work and read more about the process here.

Or order prints to be shipped to you internationally, like my family did when I showed them the site. Great minds.



A great look at how & why he does what he does.


I love a clever juxtaposition.

Also, I always feel like a bad art nerd for not loving Toulouse-Lautrec as much as I’m meant to. This is wonderful, which helps quite a bit.
