I've really been enjoying listening to the new album W H O K I L L by tUnE-yArDs (Merrill Garbus and Nate Brenner), and lo and behold I discovered yesterday via a Yours Truly video that a talented friend and artist, Alex Chitty, did the artwork for the album. A little detective work unearthed Alex in this awesome lo-fi music video.

I've been neglecting The Enthusiast of late because all of the sudden I'm also writing for a number of other awesome online publications. If you're interested in some of my other, subject-specific endeavors, keep an eye on the following feeds:

(I also had a guest post back in April on Steve Ruiz's Chicago Art Review, for Seven Artists of the Week).
In conclusion, if you do nothing else, feast on this (NSFW):
