Sof' Boy is a wonderful but extremely infrequently-published comic book by musician and artist Archer Prewitt. I love this comic about a homeless, naive dough boy who happily lives in a crime- and filth-ridden urban neighborhood, surviving attacks by man and beast because he is made out of some kind of indestructible, infinitely elastic rubber.
Giant Robot sells Sof' Boy comics: Combo Reprint (Issue #01 & Issue #02), Issue #03.

The hardened myth
still slicked and hanging on,
a tongue wagging jackal's
Bicycle Wheel was the first of a class of objects that Duchamp called his "readymades." He created twenty-one of them, all between 1915 and 1923. The readymades are a varied collection of items, but there are several ideas that unite them.Don't be a hater!
The readymades are experiments in provocation, the products of a conscious effort to break every rule of the artistic tradition. in order to create a new kind of art -- one that engages the mind instead of the eye, in ways that provoke the observer to participate and think.
Severity of sculptures stems from caprice

David Roth's painted wood wall sculptures at the Packer Schopf Gallery have some of the severity of abstract wall reliefs by Russian Constructivists such as Ivan Puni. But their assertiveness is often of a very different kind that comes from the forms being pushed into the territory of caprice to relieve the modern high seriousness.
