    Much thanks to BAS for posting my silly pictures. If you would lke to see a smaller version of the BAD vs NPR picture, go to

    and click on “news”

    Go BAS team! Love this cartoon! Hey guys, how does it feel to be immortalised as comic strip characters?!

    PS can some one upload a smaller size image for the main blog page so it fits/loads?

  3. Wonderful Steve! Let’s get together and do some abusive BAS cartoons when I’m in Chi at the fair! I like Amanda here the best. Now can someone clue me in on what and who Lifson and Hello Beautiful is? The name is really disgusting.

    Mark ask the Shark I’m sure he has something to say about it.

  5. I just did, and now I know. The Shark says, in short, it is exactly what you would expect from the show’s name. — Well, he said far more, and more exact descriptions, as you could guess, since you are attacking the show.

    Whew, maybe I’ll listen in on the web sometime, although Wesley says that would be painful! He says “Great for you guys” that you are taking him on and will cheer for you.

    Let me know what I can do to help out too.

    Hey Mark

    Thanks for the kind words. You and I shall continue our Arts Critique via Cartooning. I liked the latest cartoon shark over on Sharkforum.


  7. The Shark says:

    To hell with cartoon sharks -when the real thing comes gliding into view…….Hello Beautiful sucks -but so does much of the coverage we have inflicted upon us here -how about the apparatchik extraordinaire, that covers the scene here for Art In America? And no, I’m not referring to the either semi- retarded or just profoundly stupid Victor Cassidy who is almost too dumb to in good concience make fun of -but rather to the bureaucratic mouthpiece of the Consensus Clique – the Consensoriat apologist known as Susan Snodgrass…….people, how long are we going to put up with this degraded, insultingly corrupt, one-sided excuse of what passes itself off here as art criticism?

  8. Steve Hamann says:

    Heck Mr. Shark, you send me a photo Snodgrass (Her name sounds like a Fraggle) and I’ll make you an illustration of The Shark taking a big bite out of Mrs. A in A.

  9. The Shark says:

    hmmmmmmmmmmmm! You know our typical modus operandi as hunters is the single vicous, decapitating chomp- so you could probably just do away with the head……..

  10. John Smith says:

    I think the Shark should declare open war on the slackers.

  11. The Shark says:

    well, there really is no need to declare war when you are a shark- besides why single out any one group? The Chicago art world is especially venal and corrupt. Shall I name names? -I always do. In fact, specificity is always a big part of The Sharks attack!…..the collectors group that surround and support (fawn) all over Mr. Curator (aka The Unfortunate James Rondodo) -the incredibly bought and paid for, mouthpiece style art writing we have had to deal with for years -Snodgrass and company, the total disregard for artist here when it comes to both, the institutions and most major collectors- the amount of power the universities/art educators have here -at the expense of professional artists-…… slackers? -how about the galleries -that even on opening night in September -just cannot see their way clear to stay open past 8-9pm -closing their doors while the streets are literally still closed off due to the crowds- after all they must just be just exhausted that 11:00 to 5:30 five day work week – so utterly draconian and unfair!

  12. Steve — when we meet at the Art Fair soon, we’ve got to discuss a series of artworld cartoons — maybe collaborative — or dialogue-like responding to each other — it could be fun!

  13. Steve Hamann says:

    Hey Mark,

    That sound like fun! I’m totally in! I’ll contact you soon for more info.

    What a great idea!!!
