The fingerprint-like image seen here is "Tuber Melanosporum #1" - a detail of a pastel and ink drawing by fine-artist Mindy Dubin, who also happens to be a Flame artist at Quiet Man in New York. The piece was displayed alongside the works of assorted artworld notables at a benefit for The Trisha Brown Dance Company at New York's Pace Gallery last month. Viewable in its entirety at, the drawing is inspired by the texture of black truffles, hence the title. Dubin, who took up the Flame just a few years ago, says the transition from art to commerce has been painless. "I do a lot of semi-abstract art that's been labeled obsessive, because it's very detailed. I like to detail with patterning and repetitive gesture, which is why I think the computer works so well for me."
