Up From Ugliness: NYT Jobs tribute

Like the glories of Art Deco and the allure of the “Mad Men” era, his products were a rebuke to the idea that the aesthetics of modern life needed to be utilitarian and blah. From the Apple store to “The Incredibles,” Jobs revived the romance of modernity — the assumption, shared by Victorian science-fiction writers and space-age dreamers alike, that the world of the future should be more glamorous than the present.

This was THE Howard Arkley image I remember from art class, but it's so much more luminous and vibrant in the flesh. Love this quote from Arkley too: "My work is deadly earnest to the point of being ponderous. I find it rather confusing to be considered to be taking the mickey… I'm interested in the notion of beauty in the suburbs."
