Smith's site + online shop - per RE/SEARCH's V. Vale, Smith and his partner were selling off artwork from his archives to make rent back in June. Throw him some business if you like what you see here.

I absolutely love Winston Smith's art. I've got two of his art books... I need to see if there are any more yet.

High school, 1980, Kevin's bedroom, sitting on the floor, listening to Rotting Fruit For Fresh Vegetables. Kevin leaves the room for a few minutes. From inside the album jacket I pull out a 14-page, black and white booklet filled with Winston Smith's art. (I know it's 14 pages because it's right here on my bookshelf.) That night I realized I could also be an artist. It changed my life. It also gave me a permanent callus on my right middle finger, which seems kind of fitting.

Green Day's album title "Insomniac" came from asking Winston Smith how he was able to make so much art in so little time.
