T.S. Eliot once wrote "The good poet welds his theft into a whole of feeling which is unique, utterly different from that from which it was torn."
That was a personal reminder that interesting, substantial, and unique work is torn from the fabric of history and transformed into something new and unique.
- Brilliant illustrators like Brad Woodard keep work from Mary Blaire, Charley Harper, and even the little known pulp fiction illustrator close at hand.
- Jazz artists pay tribute to their past by slipping passages of notes from heroes like John Coltrane, Bill Evans, and Django Reinhardt into their improvisation.
- Emir Ayouni keeps a vast catalog of throwaway commercial art from 1950s advertising, fast food mascots, and horror comics to let distill in his mind.
