art crush :: austin kleon

one of my new year's resolutions that hasn't quite been accomplished yet is buying more art. not anything crazy expensive or well-known or something, but just little pieces that speak to me, that i can afford. i'm still holding out for a sally king benedict, of course. but until then, there is so much good stuff on 20x200. do you ever check out that site? have you bought anything? one of my favorites is Austin Kleon's Newspaper Blackout Poems, where he used a sharpie marker on old newspapers to let a different kind of story to emerge. this kind of art isn't for everyone, but heck, isn't that the point?

collection here

my favorites, Overheard on the Titanic and What is Marriage?
