Ten Years of PopCult

Today is the tenth anniversary of The PopCult Blog, written by Rudy Panucci. Every hour, on the hour(sort of), we’re going to bring you one of our favorite posts from the preceding decade. Some are significant “firsts,” while others are deeply touching or overwhelmingly goofy. We’ll leave it to you to figure out which is which.

I couldn’t leave out the first appearance of my imaginary daughter in Monday Morning Art, now could I?

The Radio Free Charleston Halloween Party, where we shot the host segments for this week’s show, was a load of fun, and you’ll see just how much fun tomorrow when our Halloween episode goes online. Until then marvel at this week’s Monday Morning Art, which is a digital painting based on a photo of Chelsea Cook, one of our costumed guests. I thought it would be cool to paint over our Geisha in the style of Japanese pen and watercolor. You see the results above. Chelsea took home the prize for best female costume. You can see why.

Just like every week, you can click the image to see a larger version. You can also buy this image on shirts, posters, buttons, and other stuff in the newly revamped Monday Morning Art Store. You can also follow these links to see my efforts in the PopCult store and the Radio Free Charleston store.
