The Idle Class: The Artist Issue
See me and my work on page 9!
^ BY SERGEI ISUPOV
Now that I am living in a big city surrounded by art, I want to share it with you! Expect to see no less of my original stuff but definitely more of the arty and writerly things happening around me.
I saw Sergei Isupov speak about this piece at the Gallery Zozimus this week. “I just play. I am competing with my son’s toys. The toys now are so cute!” He’s concerned with duality in a vague, mystical sense (much like myself). He paints all sides, even the bottom of his pieces, because he can’t help but satisfy “every last drop.” I’m sorry I couldn’t manage a photo of the bottom of this piece, but I recommend you check out the rest of his work.
In the words of Montell Jordan…this is how we do it. The Artist Issue has arrived.
I am featured in this issue of The Idle Class!
Sorry it’s been quiet, but I’ve got this baby in the works, and I need a new chord for my scanner. Ireland is cool.
I’m home from Seattle and road-tripping the northwest coastline with two of humanity’s finest.

I highly recommend drawing blind contours of yourself (that’s eyes closed, without lifting your pen). Greetings from Seattle!
