Links List: Cave Painting Porn, Amy Winehouse-Pete Doherty Blood Painting, and Marc Jacobs profits from Kidult’s Graffiti

  • Pete Doherty’s “Ladylike” includes a ‘self-portrait,’ of Amy Winehouse, drawn in her own blood. The painting sold well below expectations.

  • “Ladylike,” a collaborative painting made by Amy Winehouse and Pete Doherty that was made, in part, with Winehouse’s blood before her death in 2011, has sold for £35,000, about half of what it was expected to go for. [The Guardian]
  • Earlier this week, French graffiti artist Kidult graffitied Mark Jacobs’ Soho boutique with giant pink letters spelling “ART.” The designer quickly capitalized on the vandalism, tweeting a photo of it as “Art by Art Jacobs” and printing the image on a t-shirt, which retails for $689.00 [Boing Boing]
