Whatever’s on my mind really.

A peek at illustration inspiring celebrity sexiness, quirky news stories from inherently pornified pop culture, tips, sketchbook and work in progress, reviews and other things of interest; whatever’s on my mind really—which more fool you if you ever take that seriously.

Latest Picks is a sort of mini-blog for daily thoughts and picks. Longer articles, stories & sketches are found in the full-size blog, where indeed Latest Picks are moved when updates to a story make it too large.

Note: Both Latest Picks and Blog are to be retired at the end of September, although both will remain available indefinitely as an archived part of the site. No further updates to past stories will be made.

Tom Wolfe, ‘Bonfire of the Vanities’ author, dead at 88 (foxnews.com).

Tom Wolfe, the author of such legendary novels as “Bonfire of the Vanities,” “The Right Stuff” and “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test,” died Monday after being hospitalized for an infection, his agent told the Wall Street Journal. He was 88.

A former journalist and prolific writer and social satirist of American culture credited with being the founder of New Journalism, coining the terms “the me decade”, “radical chic” and “trophy wife” and renowned as a bon vivant and dandy in a signature white three-piece-suit, specator shoes, and Homburg hat worn not just in the summer, a look which “really irritated people” that he suggested he “had hit upon this harmless form of aggression” and was delightfully “neo-pretentious”.
