More Pink and Blue!

One of my favourite blogs is called MattAdore. It’s a very carefully “curated” collection of Hollywood movie star photos, vintage illustrations, comic book panels and the occasional beefcake hunk. What I love about this picture-blog is how the creator chooses each picture to relate in some way to the ones before and after, creating a rich on-going visual dialogue. Anyhow, as a wee tribute to MattAdore, here is a piece commissioned by my friend Leanne Shapton at the Times for a personal essay by one Porochista Khakpour, describing her Iranian-American childhood obsession with the series, “Thirtysomething.”  (The ghostly thumb print pattern is from an illustration on the reverse side of the page.)
