My friend Katya Usvitsky is a great Brooklyn-based artist who does a lot of textile-based work. I really like her recent pieces where she fills nylons with little wads of fiber to create weird, unsettling, organic forms.
If anybody knows how to party like its 1999, it's our friends over at Supervague. Just in time for New Year's, they've put on their creative hats and got a wee bit nostalgic - they've just released a limited edition shirt paying homage to the artist formerly known as Prince. Check it out now.
