The Brush Off

Episode 1: Seeing Simon interact with the Sucklord is's Assistant Editor's new happy place.

Oct 13, 2011

In any event, this season's got me stoked! And since a picture (or a sculpture, or some "visceral tableaux") is worth a thousand words, I'll be using some of our artists' work to help sum up what we've seen each week.

Right off the bat, we're introduced to the fourteen artists via their self-portraits. Michelle does some really amazing sculpture with paper, Kathryn's gaga for gore, Bayete argues with himself about whether or not to be on the show... and then there's the Sucklord. Yep, that's his name, and we'll try not to wear it out (no promises). Lest you get the idea that he's some sort of evil super villain (as I suppose his self-portrait might suggest), check out this unseen footage of him breaking bread pineapple with Tewz. Clearly there's a softer side to the Sucklord.
