Today is Wednesday which means another Slate Culture podcast down the pipeline. I look forward to this intellectual take-down of our nation's weekly pop culture output more than words can say.
This week marked the end of the "Sketch Steve" contest wherein podcast listeners took a gamble at drawing the mysterious Stephen Metcalf (one of three hosts) and the only host to abstain from posting a photograph of himself on the podcast facebook page.
The sketch at the top was submitted by artist Ian Dingman and earned an honorable mention. He's also the artist behind the cover art of Wes Anderson's Criterion Collection DVDs.
Take a look at his beautiful, spare artwork here. I especially like this one.
