Mark Cersosimo's short film about Stephen Wright's *House Of Dreams*

By Jack Brummet, Outsider Art Ed.

Mark Cersosimo recently made a short about Stephen Wright, who turned his London home into an artwork, “The House Of Dreams."

I would love to make a US house of dreams. If anyone has a spare house I could use, let me know!

Keira Rathbone's amazing typewriter drawings

By Jack Brummet, Analog Arts Ed.

Keira Rathbone makes cool drawings with a 1960s typewriter.   She mainly employs dashes, slashes, and brackets, while using the letters mostly for shading.  This is her website.

Interesting: who's channeling whom?

My friend Hira found this on the wall of an examining room at Yale (she's in medical school, becoming a PA).  She had seen it numerous times, but one day realized the characters resembled the ones in my (Jack's) faces drawings series...the faces all similar to mind, and done in the same sort of format--squares on a grid, with each portrait a shoulders-up head shot.  It is a little eerie, but easily explainable when two people who like to draw, but being unschooled, use an approach more closely rooted in comics and folk art than in the studio portrait tradition.  It will look like this (artist unknown--click to enlarge):
