Peter Whitley’s comment is:

For some reason I feel like I'm not supposed to like Paula Scher's paintings...as if, hasn't she accomplished enough already? But I do, albeit in a geeky, guilty pleasure sort of way. They're saccharine.

Think the schizophrenic self portrait is a fake. I mean, do ALL of her personalities prefer a crayon medium? C'mon. (Especially in that one of the personalities appears to be holding a painter's palette; shouldn't at least that one be in oil?)

Found faces is terrific. Love it. Reminds me of that Taschen book of 1000 signs.

T-Mobile can keep magenta for all I care. If it doesn't work in black and white, it doesn't work in pink.
