LABSN Editor’s Note: I found this interesting just for the sense of making me aware of how we objectify women in culture. We can all learn from this.

As an artist, what can I consider if I want to de-objectify and add power to female characters? A visual guide by Eisner nominee Renae De Liz.

Media’s Grim Addiction to Perseverance Porn | FAIR

LABSN Editor’s Note: I thought this take on how a news item is reported was very important. FAIR has a reputation for making news reporters think about what they write from a different point of view.

These stories are typically shared for the purposes of poor-shaming, typically under the guise of inspirational life advice. A healthy press would take these anecdotes of “can do” spirit and ask bigger questions, like why are these people forced into such absurd hardship?

IMG_0928While most days you’d get arrested if you walked fully nude down the sidewalk at 47th Street and Second Avenue in New York City — topless is fine, for all genders; bottomless is not, for any — there is an exception.

Bodypainting Day.

Once a year, for the past three, Andy Golub has organized a mass bodypainting festival, gathering a hundred models of all sizes, shapes, ages, races, and genders to pose fully nude in the street and act as human canvases for dozens of talented artists flown in from all over the country and all over the world.

IMG_0948This year it threatened to rain — but despite all the gloomy forecasts, not a drop was felt, and the proceedings came off without a hitch. Several members of our august bookclub were there (even though it was still July, hee hee):

BETTIE PAGE QUEEN OF CURVES | BUNNY YEAGER WORLD’S PRETTIEST PHOTOGRAPHER

LABSN Editor’s Note: I’ve always had this thing for Betty Page and Bunny Yeager, so I thought I’d share this article with an interview of Betty by Bunny on selvedgeyard.com.

For me, Bettie Page & Bunny Yeager epitomize iconic American pinup photography. Not just of the 1950s… Ever. In 1954, Bettie Page was working with Irving Klaw in NYC and decided a break w…
