Daily Pic: A sculpture by the British artist David Shrigley, now in his solo exhibition at the Hayward Gallery in London. Shrigley certainly has a jokester side (other pieces include a stuffed dog carrying a sign that says “I’m Dead” and a cup of tea the size of a sink) but at his best he distills significant themes and iconic images down to their Looney Tunes essence. Stick figures having sex on a red car hood seems to do that trick for pornography.  (Photo by Linda Nylind)
