Recessionista: Jenna Lyons Is Sharpie Sighted

-------

What: An art-world version of a beloved real-world staple: the Sharpie marker re-created by brand-subverting artist Tom Sachs.

Why: Because even though it’s more than you’re used to spending on a permanent marker, it’s far less than you’d spend on art. “[It’s] the closest that most of us will get to the art world, with a practical application. And it’s cool,” says J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons, who is well versed on affordable luxury.

Where: $12, www.tomsachs.org .

    $12! I could buy 100 original sharpies for that price. Now if its for ego trips…that’s another story. “Dude look at this pen…its a…A PEN!” (applause in the background…cue the church choir)
