Hockey

Covering Up Purple Walls

I bought some new art. Actually, it came free in a magazine that I read. The November/December issue of The Believer had this ten-page spread. I pressed it and mounted it to foamcore. So, for the $10 price of a back issue, you could have a large depressing charcoal pencil sketch on your wall, too.



The artist, Robyn O'Neil,is absolutely amazing. The size of these sketches is immense. And she's not afraid to "go dark", both in subject and in the amount of graphite on the paper. She was in the Whitney Biennial in 2004, and was even on the Howard Stern show.
