Celery + Gravity = ART
My friend Genevieve IMmed me this link, featuring the work of obsessed fifties illustrator Art Frahm. Frahm’s muse must have been an Austrian, with round glasses and a homburg hat: it commanded him to paint the same scenario over and over again: falling panties, blowing skirts, hatboxes, celery, and an observer in uniform. The commentary is funny as hell, too. The site is put together by newspaper columnist James Lileks. There are many other great sitelets there, too — a disturbing archive of stock dog photos, a careful anthology of cartoon flip-takes. He’s my home-page hero!
