Fashion designer John Galliano recently went on an anti-semitic rant.  A video circulated of the Dior designer praising Hitler.  It shocked the fashion world and he was subsequently fired from Dior.  He even faces up to six months in jail for his remarks.  Clearly he won’t be working any time soon.  However, artist Glen Hanson has brilliantly come up with an idea for a potential Spring 2011 line.  Oh Em Gee!  For more details (and other fantastic images), visit Glen Hanson’s official website.

The Men of Sex and The City by Glen Hanson

A few weeks ago, I told you about the amazing window displays of the women of Sex and The City by artist Glen Hanson at Jeffrey in New York (located at 449 West 14th Street).  They were so wildly popular that the men of Sex and The City are now featured!  From left to right, Harry Goldenblatt (Evan Handler), Steve Brady (Scott Eigenberg) and Smith Jerrod (Jason Lewis).  Mr. Big is not featured because the rumor is he couldn’t get off the couch to sit for a portrait.  While you are down at Jeffrey checking out these really cool displays, don’t forget to pick up your free limited edition postcard featuring the ladies of Sex and The City as interpreted by the marvelous mind of Glen Hanson.

Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due

The Golden Girls by Glen Hanson.

The above image of the Golden Girls by Glen Hanson has become an icon that is nearly as famous as the girls themselves.  The illustration has been featured on the cover of a book (The Q Guide to The Golden Girls by Jim Colucci), the viral video “Betty White Lines”  and just try to visit San Francisco, New York or Los Angeles without running into that image on a T-shirt!  Glen Hanson’s Golden Girls illustration has even been turned into a tattoo that looks pretty cool, according2g.  Today on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, during a segment on “bad paid-for tattoos,” the image was featured giving the artist Glen Hanson no credit and no respect.  You can see the image here:

We’d like to give credit to the artist and we’d also like to challenge Ellen’s choices about what makes “bad art” especially as this is the same person who featured former President George Bush on her show after he made his feelings about the ban on gay marriage abundantly clear.

Ellen might not have your back Glen, but According2g does!  G power!
