sounds like he's prefacing a plea to let him buy Heatwave - either that, or trying to store up credit for future requests.

marcel dzama:

I had a Dzama book in my hands the other day with intention to buy, but I put it back. it was a sketchbook thing, I believe. maybe I'll go back and pull the trigger.
I've spent a lot of time at Tate Britain staring at Turner's epic landscapes, the attention to detail is astounding.


Bosch is a massive influence, his work is insanity on canvas


Banksy and Ron English are also favourites of mine, despite their many detractors.

Wow. These are some incredible strong pictures. Not being that much in art, I didn't know many of these artists.The Luigi Serafini is really cool. I love it.

As far as Austrians go, we have of course Gottfried Helnwein:



And his once fellow student, Manfred Deix, one genius caricaturist (I rate him within the art context):

matt furie is a genius. his art ranges from black & white cartoons that are so bizarrely stupid and banal that you can't help laughing at them to huge, mind-blowing, incredibly detailed pieces.

no, but this one may be mine soon, once I find out how much he charges for shipping to the Tundra.

He's been mentioned, but I think it was because of the Linda King book, Bukowski Undigested, that he did the artwork for.

He was also at the Bukowski Festival here in LA a few months ago showing some of his work.

Black Swan

Abord the Yorikke!
yes, that is very cool indeed. I have seen one of his pieces in a museum of modern art in Ivry near Paris. It was a perfect red ring but you had to be standing in a certain point in a large room to put it together. Somehow, without knowing it, you felt driven to the right spot, as if you were looking to solve a puzzle.
The Power of Art looks excellent. I'd like to suggest these additional titles - ones that illumine the world of art and all forms of creative genius:

Civilisation: The Complete Series

Man Ray - Prophet of the Avant-Garde

Alfred Stieglitz: The Eloquent Eye

The Mystery of Picasso

Each title is rich and worthy of repeated viewings, but supply your own soundtrack to the Picasso as you watch him work and rework his paintings.


"So fuck Doubleday Doran"
