Renowned cartoonist and pop culture expert/collector Mark Newgarden is selling some of his prized possessions. Newgarden has long contributed his cheerfully sardonic vision to a variety of high and low media and continues to delight and disturb those kids of all ages. Creator of the 1980s non-PC icon Garbage Pail Kids for the Topps Co, Newgarden has long championed cheap junk as the 20th century’s great art form and has subsequently unleashed a torrent of warped and weird entertainments in a multitude of forms. Mark Newgarden resides with children’s illustrator and author Megan Montague Cash in an ex-funeral parlor in Willamsburg, Brooklyn. A mountain of stuff.

You know, that $25k could go towards actually cleaning up the water in the river instead of building a pool on top of it, you jackoffs. I mean, I get that this is “cool” from some theoretical architect wet dream standpoint but everyone backing this needs to rethink their entire lives.
Um, you guys do realize that the pool FILTERS THE EAST RIVER WATER SO IT LITERALLY IS CLEANING IT and it’s designed to be completely sustainable… I think you have to read a little further down to get there…
