James Lileks-Portrait Of An Everyday Average Joe Freelancer
Apparently, James Lileks’ folksy Daily Quirk column is being cancelled
Here’s the painting I did of him for the City Pages article on his work for his Republican blog,
I also a crafted a very James Lileks-style response to my painting:
"Oh, bravo, you little Wheat Thin chattering twit. Lileks, the Evil rampaging conquistador on his steed, blindly following patriotism over the cliff as the End Times happen all around at my feet. I’ve never seen that before, How Hieronymus Bosch of you.
Oh, you forgot my Hummer and Bush/Cheney04 button? You’re loosing your touch, Titian, back to $50,000/per year knitting school for you. And don’t forget your sandals and contempt for the tyrannical evil emperor and his band of Pioneers and Rangers.
Oh yawn; while you’re taking on War-Mongering Fascists and Global Warming with the shiny Arts Grant you got for Christmas, some of us are doing important things. Have fun with the 10 people who read your blog, Pierre. I’m a Best-Selling Author, goodbye.”
See how easy it is to be James Lileks? Anyone can do it.
