Art is also a friend of mine; a Mexican guy. Nice guy

In honor of tonight's episode of Work Of Art, I'm posting this old favorite from Creature Comforts.  It seems especially germane to Bravo's competition show.  That a show which is purportedly seeking out the Next Great Artist - presumably an iconoclast who defines a current edge of creative expression and reflection - is shoe-horned into a tried-and-tired format exudes a kind of democratic blitheness that is echoed in the animated crowd-sourced rumination on art.  There's a cheerily banal quality to the show; really not much worth commenting on any further than I've already done.  I'll continue watching - it's too hot to do anything else - to see how it ends.
