Cool flag, who is this guy, what is the flag made from, where is it displayed?

It's probably not, but it looks like brick.

Ah, a painting. I wish I liked to paint regularly because you can get such interesting texture. Here's a link, Dad, if you want to check it out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jasper_Johns

good link, Kat. I don't have time to do another post today, but I'll do one soon with all the reasons I think this is a super-cool piece of art.

i read the wikipedia link, and i thought it was interesting that johns was described as a neo-dadaist as well as a pop artist.

that made me think of a question i'v been meaning to ask you. i was having an art discussion with my roommate who is a tattoo artist/painter, in which he commented "as an artist, i think that stuff like duchamp's 'fountain' is the biggest insult to the work i do" i'm rather curious about your thoughts on this- might make a good upcoming post, maybe?
