For a yearly fee of US$500 young urban artist-types in Brooklyn, New York (and others wanting to avail themselves of the service) can contract Dr Jay Parkinson to provide them with two house calls and unlimited consultations by instant messenger and email. If his patients need other services, he sources them at the best rate. On the bright side, if his patients are short of cash, he says he may "accept artwork" for his services. (This may have something to do with his being an amateur photographer.) Alas, his blog is no longer - are blogs really outdated now? - but he has moved on to something called tumblr.
