MARCH 7 – APRIL 4, 2014
847 WASHINGTON ST, MEATPACKING DISTRICT, NYC – HRS: WED-SUN / 12-6 PM
BEST ‘HYPER-GRAPHIC’ PHOTO . . MORIAH SEE.
reminding me of RICHARD PRINCE, JEFF KOONS and .. STEFAN SAGMEISTER.
but what seals the deal for me – here, is how her calves are so . . ‘chunky’, and not airbrushed, it’s a curious tension, over all.
BEST REALIST, DOCUMENTARY / NAKED PHOTO, GOES TO . . MARGARITA JIMENO
so FRESH. so HAPPY. so SELFIE !!
so far past, so over the heads of all those other in-your-face explicit ole school porn dawgs.
we get it, ALREADY !!
get HAPPY !!
BEST CROWD SHOT, mostly because . . competing for my heart along with that ‘rough’ and ‘ready’ MORGAN ST. EVEREST painting above, that is MY OTHER FAVORITE, ‘INFORMATION GRAPHICS’ & ‘STREET STYLE’ PAINTING . . just, just visible on the right.
INTERLOPER ‘BOY’ ART . . by AARON KUHN.
ha, so cute, what a man cave !!
note the dirty sneakers at right. love it. cracked iPhone screen and all.
and I mean is that Phallic, or what.
just staying on topic, ‘GIRLS ONLY’ !!
‘POST YORK’ – a multi-media project – a comic book illustrated by his dad . . JAMES ROMBERGER, inspired in part by Crosby, which comes with a musical flexidisc, music by CROSBY . . just garnered a very prestigious WILL EISNER AWARD – NOMINATION 2013 for BEST SINGLE ISSUE (One-Shot).
congrats, James and Crosby. seriously !!
and see, growing up in a storefront with artist parents on the Lower East Side, back in day when the 80s, and the L.E.S. (!!) were the real deal – doesn’t seem to be such a bad way to bring up a kid, after all.
(just ask Kate & Theo !! 5 Rivington St / East Storefront)

CROSBY’S parents . . JAMES ROMBERGER and MARGUERITE VAN COOK have been in the news as well, big time.
for another project.
they worked with the late DAVID WOJNAROWICZ on his critically acclaimed autobiography, a graphic novel – ‘7 MILES A SECOND’ – which was just re-released 2013 in a deluxe edition by Fantagraphics, and which received a ton of fab fab press, and a place on the NEW TIMES best seller list.
Crosby’s dad JAMES ROMBERGER penned the drawings, while his mom, MARGUERITE VAN COOK did the inking/coloring, via . . very vivid watercolor.
and, definite, catch: a great review in . . SLATE !!
watch: CROSBY, ‘Are You Listed ?’ . . on YouTube, AUG 2007 – DEITCH PROJECTS.
of course, one of young CROSBY’S . . most amusing 15 mins of fame, to date !!
would have to be this clip of him, doing manual labor, and boring !! – with a few other (also bored) downtown denizens, in support of the very last DASH SNOW exhibit: ‘NEST’ – at DEITCH PROJECTS !!
well, who do you thunk, ripped up all that paper !!
ps: if you listen closely, you can catch taskmaster KATHY GRAYSON admonishing Crosby to get back – to it !!
yeah . . way to go Kathy.
take a kid who does graphics for SWIZZ BEATZ !! and have him rip up phone books, for Dash Snow.
good crashing – CROSBY, or what !!
