Jennifer Jacobs has Fun at CBS's Expense

I had a class with Jennifer Jacobs at the CUNY Grad center and went the entire semester watching her sketch in her notebook with no knowledge of her outdoor visual activities.

Her statement of intent ends..."I am not interested in condemning or defending the condition of modern media; instead I am attempting to advance my understanding of the elements of popular culture that I identify with. My art is an effort to take responsibility for the effects of my exposure to popular media and provide an insightful and personal response."

Recent ad alterations prove she is taking that responsibility seriously, and attempting to teach us to do the same. I just wish those damn corporate icons would have been removed in the process.
