After getting married last week, my wife & I decided to spend a brief honeymoon at the new Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, even though we live less than a mile away. It was a very nice experience, but what really caught my eye was Dan Funderburgh‘s beautiful wallpaper that was made specifically for this location, using iconic images from North Brooklyn, like the
GreekRussian Orthodox Church, the red fire call posts, and graffitied post office boxes. Check out the detail in these vignettes. Very cool.

I’m not a fan of that terrible clothing and novelty line of Sailor Jerry tattoos, but pictures of naked girls always looks good in a bathroom.

Art galleries are so last century and art museums only have successful shows when they’re showing commercial art. I think some of the most creative juices today are flowing in public bathrooms all across this great static nation.
