Andrew Jeffrey Wright

Philadelphia-based artist, painter, photographer and stand-up comedian Andrew Jeffrey Wright just closed a wonderful exhibit at Domy Books Austin. Last night I watched his dvd of "art jokes" and I can honestly say it's the first time I've laughed that kind of delighted, involuntary laughter in a while. Which was sorely needed. However, no one is laughing about this:

Read (via The Art Collectors) about the blatant, unauthorized, uncredited and unpaid-for use of Andrew's work as a dress for teen catalog Delia's and weep for humanity. Or, actually do something about it on his behalf. What in the wild world of sports is wrong with people?
