Nosferatu, the Vampyre
**** out of ****    You know a classic film is close to somebody's heart when, to the Americans, it is foreign; but to the person describing the film, it is native - and yet the person goes on to describe it as the best motion picture ever to come out of their home country. In the case of Werner Herzog - that daring ground-breaker of a filmmaker - F.W. Murnau's "Nosferatu" is the …

The Dali Museum
Florida and Dali?  I never would've thought to put the two together.  When I think of the Tampa Bay Area, it doesn't exactly conjure up thoughts of Spanish surrealism.      I've been to the Tampa Bay Area many times over the past few years, counting it as my second home, but had never felt particularly compelled to visit The Dali Museum, mostly because I didn't …

Nitrate + Kinogeists 2. Teil - Art of Silent Cinema

Among the diverse contemporary artists to contribute to the exhibition were modern symbolist painter Gail Potocki, illustrator Douglas Klauba, and illustrator, graphic artist, and filmmaker Dave McKean.The show which was held in Chicago by Century …

The Union of Hope and Sadness: The Art of Gail Potocki
The Union of Hope and Sadness written by Thomas Negovan is a beautifully haunting exploration of the artwork of modern symbolist painter Gail Potocki. The book features a great collection of her art spanning over six years from 1999 to 2006 and reveals some of her inspirations and influences while detailing the symbolic meanings represented in her paintings. In addition to showcasing her paintings, …

Dustcovers: The Collected Sandmand Covers
Dave Mckean created some great artwork for these covers. The uniqueness of these covers comes from the original idea (at the time, as editor Karen Berger comments) of not featuring Sandman at every cover; which allowed McKean to experiment and create these gorgeous covers. While its not a necessary part of your Sandman collection, seeing the covers without any text around them with additional commentary …

Dustcovers: The Collected Sandmand Covers
Dustcovers is an extraordinary (albeit incomplete) collection of Dave McKean's covers for Neil Gaiman's Sandman adult comic book series.      The works presented in this collection are diverse and cover a range of mediums from paintings to drawings, from collage to computer manipulated photographs. The style is hard to describe, but there are strong elements of expressionism, …

Dave McKean
Dave McKean is a true renaissance man.      He has illustrated novels for adults and children, illustrated comic books (most notably in collaboration with Neil Gaiman), painted covers for comics, novels, and albums, directed a fantasy feature film and two strange short films, plays in a jazz band, creates remarkable works of modern art, and he seems virtually inexhaustible as he …

Jeffrey Catherine Jones
Jeffrey Catherine Jones passed away yesterday on May 19. Jones will likely be remembered for her incredible talents as a comic book artist and illustrator who worked skillfully in the science fiction and fantasy genres. Much of Jones' work owes its artistic inspiration to Frank Frazetta (who later called Jones the greatest living artist) who also recently passed away just over a year ago, and …

I saw this statue years ago when it toured the United States. Then last year I got to see it in Rome within St Peter's Basilica amongst the other great sculptures and was even more in awe of the artist's work.

Loved seeing the Sistine Chapel but was disappointed by the lack of respect it's given by the world wide tourists. Our tour guide told us to whisper if we had to talk at all, but when we got inside it was as noisy as a sports bar during a game.

Adam and Eve
   I've only very recently become aware of Gail Potocki's artwork mainly through her new works for the Nitrate + Kinogeists exhibition inspired by silent films. Her works are so full of personality and emotion and haunting. I really love this particular painting(s) depicting Adam & Eve. Lovely work.
posted a Quick Tip about Book of Dreams. March 15, 2011
Book of Dreams
Without a doubt, this is my favorite work of art by Dave McKean and probably the quintessential painted comic book cover. Featured originally on The Sandman: Book of Dreams short story collection in 1996 and then later on The Absolute Sandman: Volume 1, the painting is a masterpiece that is highly sought after as a poster by modern art fans and comic book geeks alike. It's simply gorgeous.

John Bauer
Up until just recently I was unfamiliar with artwork of John Bauer, with the exception of Princess Tuvstarr and the Fishpond, but he's already become one of my favorite illustrators. His works provided inspiration for classic illustrators like Arthur Rackham and fantasy artists like Brian Froud. I will definitely be looking into his artwork over the next few weeks and likely will add him to my …
