Kevin Kinsella’s Langour Management is one of my favorite sites, and recently he took a break from posting on Russian literature to feature a satirical look at artists. His story, Beaver shots as a break from literature is a clever diversion:
James had been working on a series of self-conscious self-portraits, Marcus, a series of mural-size nudes of his then girlfriend. They had been alone together in the university?s darkroom for hours, James hunching protectively over his mannered bust shots and Marcus brazenly ?burning in? his subject?s pubic hair for ultimate detail, before Marcus finally broke the silence.
?What are those, headshots for the corporate Web site??
What amused me most was the mutual indifference each felt for the other’s project.
