Each year we basically turn over the entire December feature to Thirst who shifted the entire POV this year in a novel direction away from the “usual” Newcity approach. Thirst took it another step this year, by asking designers they had selected over the last two years to identify a designer and then engage in conversation. This bent our curatorial process further from the center. Rick invited Michael Jefferson to contribute an introduction and one of his paintings for the cover.
