Stratos Fear

A cartoon that surely must have produced many nightmares in its day. I'm certain there was much psychosexual damage done when the sexy woman revealed her true identity.

Turner Prize 2012


It's that time of the year again, a favorite moment for all WU-vies. The shortlist for the UK Turner Prize is announced! We get to see a selection of the best and the brightest UK artists, those figures who contribute to humanity's glorious heritage of imperishable art that uplifts the soul and defines what it is to be human.

My personal fave this year is Lali Chetwynd. "She reworks iconic moments from cultural history in deliberately amateurish and improvisatory performances." Such as you see above.

Monet, eat your heart out!
