Hi there, I'm Jane Mattimoe.

- I post a lot of my original art work on here, because the alternative would be pulling a Goya, and wallpapering my house with it.

-I collaborate on comics with my friend Julian Rowe(I write the jokes and he draws them)! Check for our blog of cartoons rejected by The New Yorker in the links section!

-I'm a watercolor artist who focuses on landscapes and portraiture.

-I write about my adventures (which usually involve music, art, and New York City).

-Currently attempting to write a novel (don't ask about it...).

-I like creative punctuation;

-I am physically incapable of getting a tan.

-I moved to Manhattan on two days' notice.

-But now I live in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Here are my favorite of my selfies as other people! Kinda fun to see them all together. I did them all by using extreme makeup and phone app filters! I didn’t photoshop my facial features.

Top Row: Regular Me (for comparison), Grace Kelly, Barbra Streisand

2nd: Audrey Hepburn, Catherine Deneuve

3rd: Joan Crawford, Marlene Dietrich, Elizabeth Taylor

Thomas Jefferson was kind of a dick. This is probably not a popular opinion, but I grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia, home of Monticello and the University of Virginia, so I know more about him than anyone would ever want to know. I think I visited his home, Monticello (which bankrupted him and his family) at least a dozen times.

An example of TJ being a son of a bitch is something you learn when you first enter the foyer of Monticello—you see that it is filled with all sorts of maps, pelts, and Western paraphernalia. The tour guide then tells you that he kept the room as sort of a museum, and when guests would call on him, he’d make them wait in the room for hours, presumably to force them to look at his cool stuff out of sheer boredom, like “fuck you, you’re gonna look at this fancy shit I collected, nerds.”

Another instance of his asshole behavior has to do with his portrait collection. He had several portraits of his favorite thinkers commissioned and hanging in a line on his wall. While looking at his portraits, you will notice that there is one near the ground. That’s a painting of his son, who never graduated college. Because of his incomplete education, TJ told him that his portrait didn’t deserve to be near the great minds, so he hung it near the floor!

There are plenty of other reasons why he was an absolute jerk (cough cough slavery cough), though I will concede that he also did a lot of awesome stuff (The Declaration of Independence was pretty okay I guess, and I went to his school or whatever).

This is what you should be listening to when springtime is fully in reach, and in the sunshine it’s warm enough for short sleeves, but you’re glad that you brought a jacket if by chance you end up on the shady side of the street.

I went to the Italian Futurism show at the Guggenheim last night (pay what you will night, suckas!) where I saw this painting, the Solidity of Fog, by Russolo. What made it noteworthy to me was that, though it wasn’t the intent of the artist, it looked (to me) like an abstract painting of the interior of the Guggenheim. Clearly, not the case, since the Guggenheim was built in 1959 and this was painted in 1912. Talk about futurism.
Also, no offense to Frank Lloyd Wright, but am I the only one who gets extremely dizzy spiraling upwards in the museum?
