This week’s artisitic jump-start is an old image I’d created in the early days of PopCult, but never used until now. It’s a digital Impasto take on The Union Building. Click to see it bigger.

As you may have noticed, we are in the midst of The Tenth Annual PopCult Gift Guide. It’s going to continue for quite some time, so you might as well get used to it. Friday and Saturday will be devoted to local restaurants and merchants, but the rest of our days will each feature three-to-five cool gift ideas to help you out with your holiday gift-giving. Look for them weekdays starting at 5 PM, and weekend mornings, until I run out of ideas.
