    Budget Woes Cause University to Sell Jackson Pollock?

    Design With Intent: How Designers Can Influence Behavior

    Eerie Fashion Show Brings Condo Characters to Life in Paris
    PARIS—Men’s fashion week opened last night in Paris with a decidedly New York–infused show: American designer Adam Kimmel unveiled his fall-winter 2010 collection, inspired from start to finish by iconic downtown artist George Condo.

    Penelope's Guide to New, Fresh Ideas

    Penelope's Guide to New, Fresh Ideas
    Recently I was kind of stuck on an assignment… not coming up with any good, usable ideas and feeling that creeping sense of despair: “I will never come up with another good concept again in my whole life. I’m doomed!” (Ok, I’m a little melodramatic, I know this.) So in the afternoon, after wallowing around the studio and much teeth gnashing, ...

After she had told me how awful and derivative my paintings were, she looked over at ...
