Tim Biskup's Jackson 500

Biskup has a new book out filled with tons of his business card size paintings. Apparently this is volume 2. How did I miss volume 1?

Herculoids Imagery

I've been thinking about "The Herculoids" recently. It was a much beloved cartoon that aired when I was but a lad. I found this quite accidentally today but it's pretty cool. I really like the slideshow of the sketchbook.

George McNeil

George McNeil (1908-1995) studied at the Pratt Institute, the Art Students League, the Hans Hoffmann School of Fine Arts and Columbia University. He was an original and indefatigable presence in the New York art community for decades. He earned awards and fellowships from the Ford Foundation, the National Council on the Arts and the Guggenheim. He has been collected by major museums, including MOMA, The Whitney Museum of American Art and The Walker Art Center.Carter Ratcliff said that "The imaginary realm of George McNeil's painting is one of the richest in contemporary art."
