While at a friend’s house for Christmas, I was exposed to that old social satire chestnut MAD Magazine whose January issue features a rather astute satire advertising the “Controversial Artist Instruction School”. It assesses your potential by asking such questions as “Do you frequently doodle, make sketches or finger paint with your own bodily secretions?” and so on. Damien and Traci all sent up proper. Very clever. Required reading for all freshmen art students arriving for the Spring semester.
