A Quick Tip by Count_Orlok_22

  • Jun 9, 2011
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 moves from one medium to another, and working in all manner of genres and movements, McKean is a remarkably talented man who continues to astonish me with his beautiful, macabre, expressionistic interpretation of both reality and dreams. No other artist in any medium is doing what he is right now and as far as I'm concerned that is the true mark of a genius. Try as they might, nobody can emulate McKean or produce images that are so seductively surreal.

Excellent images that you've included!

Thanks. I'm thinking I may do a list devoted to McKean soon. I've got to do the Lunch version of my William-Adolphe Bouguereau list and then I may get around to it. By the way, there are more photos than the small four ones that are showing up here. I'm not sure why it's not displaying them all, but if you click on the small ones you can cycle through them.

I think that would be a neat list. I see 11 photos total, but thanks for the tip about cycling through them!

Okay, that's weird because it's only displaying four on my end.

Must be your computer or browser.

Must be.

Well, hopefully it doesn't cause too much trouble or confusion in the future.
