(10.10.06) Recommends:

The artwork of Carson Ellis.

I've been on a Decemberists kick as of late and, of course, a recommendation of this band should not be made without recommending the excellent artwork of their resident illustrator Carson Ellis. Her artwork is kind of like the band's music: it seems quaint, like from another era. Yet completely modern. And upon closer inspection, you see things you didn't notice before. Slightly mutated takes on familar scenes. Fans of Marcel Dzama and Amy Cutler will love her artwork. Please visit her webpage, my favorite is her work in pen and ink. So go, and purchase something from her. After all, you're getting older, and those posters of Bud Light biki models really should come down at this point.
