I'd find it hard to pinpoint one artist... I love a lot of art, for a lot of different reasons. If I was choosing something to go on my wall I might have quite different criteria as regards what I like than I do when I'm stroking my chin in an art gallery, thinking about what appeals to me and why, and if not, why not, etc. I really enjoyed Louise Bourgeois' exhibition at the Tate Modern. She came across as being ambitious, angry, flawed, talented and free-thinking.

If your eyes are giving you jip (or is it gip?) the text reads: Once there was a girl and she loved a man. They had a date next to the eighth street station of the sixth avenue subway. She had put on her good clothes and a new hat. Somehow he could not come. So the purpose of this picture is to show how beautiful she was. I really mean that she was beautiful.

aw man, can you guys not see the pretty picture i posted? i'd put an attachment in but i'm scared that susie will hunt me down and beat me up or something. it says on her website that you can't use her pictures for anything, anywhere, ever unless you have her permisson.

here's her website:

http://www.boygirlparty.com/illustration/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and her shop: http://www.boygirlparty.com/shoppe/index.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

look at the pretty pictures!

Is the picture of a bird and a cassette thing? I can see it.

Maybe snorkachu's computer is too clogged up with smut to see it.

Stop outfancying me immediately!

Two things I am addicted to:

1. Screenshots, the taking and the posting of.
2. YouTube: the posting of any YouTube clip I find to be even slightly relevant.
