“I have been a huge fan of Shepherd Fairy since before I was super-famous and was just regular famous. To me, he’s not just an artist — he’s like a wisdom-y shepherd who squirts magical fairy-ink (Though I’ll never understand why he makes all those pictures of Andre 3000 the Giant. There are other rapper-slash-actors, Shepherd!). So I was super stoked when he asked me to be the subject of his new work of artwork, “Zoolander Blue Steel.” I’m no art critic, but I think what he made is really good and nice. Now, why Blue Steel for this portrait and not, say, Magnum? Well, Magnum means “large” in Spanish, and this is a small, limited-edition run of 450 prints. Purchase one or a few hundred, won’t you? Art makes you cultured, and being cultured is not just good for Greek yogurt but also for people (both Greek and regular).”
