• Tumblr of the day: Jay Batlle’s “Restaurant, Restaurant”

    I met Brooklyn-based artist Jay Batlle a hundred years ago through writer Lesley M. M. Blume, at one of her over-the-top-insane house parties (if you’re ever invited, clear your schedule). Jay’s a phenomenal character, a fabulous cook, a greyhound owner, a spectacled genius. He creates many kinds of art, but one of my favorite projects is “Restaurant, Restaurant,” a long-running series of works painted on restaurant menus and hotel stationary. Some of them are real dirty. They’re all real fun. Check ‘em out.
