I was wedding-swamped over the weekend, as you may have noticed from the shortage of posts, but a Michael Jackson tribute dance at the wedding put me in the mood for tributes to a fine artist from my childhood. The following was produced by inmates at a prison:

Finding FAULT: One Sexy Magazine December 24, 2008
FAULT is my new magazine love. Published quarterly, with a yearly companion limited edition hardback book, FAULT seeks out the best and newest in music, art, film and fashion like an intrepid jetsetter. Sort of like Athena, but a whole lot trendier in an I-get-out-of-the-house-a-lot, London kind of way. The art direction alone is incredibly fresh—and who even needs content when you’ve got that on your side. But you gotta love anyone who is actively seeking our next generation of artists. See FAULT here.
