The Cosby Sweater Project Recalls Important Details

The Cosby Sweater Project Recalls Important Details

Kelly Tucker's Cosby Sweater Project documents the crème de la crème of Huxtable fashions through the show's eight seasons

Kelly Tucker’s Cosby Sweater Project, which aims to document the crème de la crème of Huxtable fashions through the show’s eight seasons, has been garnering wide acclaim. A collection of tumblr posts juxtaposing screen captures from the ’80s sitcom with Tucker’s own renderings of textile details in those stills has been written up on Frank151, streetwear sites like HypeBeast and Mishka, and Vulture.

Tucker’s practice of giving artistic weight to some of the more overlooked, but essential details of the Cosby Show doesn’t seem far off from Justin Gignac’s charcoal series Nudes of Chatroulette or Kate Bingaman-Burt‘s obsessive drawings of daily purchases.
