SET OF GLEE: DISTRESSING DETAILS
After an exhaustive search, set decorator Robert Kensinger found the janitor’s sink at an L.A.-area salvage yard and paired it with a beat-up cabinet. Though he added crystal glassware from H.D.

Apparently, a photo of mine and a watercolor by Sandra Walker from my book The Fading Ads of New York City (History Press, 2011) that are used for a set in the latest season of Glee are being featured in this week’s EW! Just ordered them online. Can’t wait to read the article.
HEY! Move that lamp! There’s my photo on the wall behind THAT LAMP!
Notice the fading ad on the wall outside of the window of Finn Hudson’s apartment. Flattering to see the influence my project has had on this set decorator.
