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 …
posted a Quick Tip about Dustcovers: The Collected Sandman Covers. June 16, 2011
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; …

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 …

Pietà
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 …

I think investing in feeding your family good quality, healthy food without chemicals is the most important step in green living. But if you can afford other things like healthier bedding, by all means …
reviewed Painting Elephants. March 25, 2011
Painting elephants
I have long read online that there are a group of elephants somewhere in the world who are so clever that they know how to paint. Being somewhat of a realist, I was extremely skeptical about elephants …

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 …
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 …

The Golden Thumb
This thing is awesome. Is there a best draft category?
posted a Quick Tip about Madonna. November 15, 2010
Madonna
Of all of Munch's paintings, this one is easily the most sensual and though the colors aren't as bright as in some of his other paintings, the work is as vibrant as ever!
posted a Quick Tip about The Sick Child (lithograph). November 15, 2010
The Sick Child (lithograph)
One of Munch's most haunting images. Munch created two works with this same title, one of which was a painting, though I prefer this version. There's a melancholy delicacy to this lithograph that is unmatched. …
posted a Quick Tip about Where is Pease-Blossom?. November 03, 2010
Another splendid work from Rackham's illustrated edition of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. I wouldn't mind a framed reproduction of this on my wall.
posted a Quick Tip about Titania lying asleep.. November 03, 2010
Titania lying asleep.
A gorgeous illustration of the Queen of the Faeries, Titania. Despite this particular piece being based on Shakespeare, I'm reminded of Sleeping Beauty as well.
posted a Quick Tip about It seemed as if a sudden swarm of win.... November 03, 2010
It seemed as if a sudden swarm of winged creatures brushed past her.
One of my favorite Rackham images, this illustration depicts the unfortunate Pandora of Greek mythology as she opens the fabled box and lets loose all the world's evils upon humanity.
posted a Quick Tip about Thor. November 03, 2010
Thor
Again, Rackham creates an indelible image based on Wagner's Ring Cycle. Thor, also called Donner, is presented here in all of his glory; his cape bellowing in the wind, his hammer held high, a look of …
posted a Quick Tip about Freya. November 03, 2010
Freya
An essential work by Rackham, the illustrations for Wagner's epic Ring Cycle are stunning and this is easily my favorite piece from that series.

The Dream
Wow, I don't know what else I can say. Wow. This is just bizarre... and eerie... and haunting... and wow!
posted a Quick Tip about The Plague. October 09, 2010
The Plague
This is a truly superb example of Gothic Symbolist artwork. One of Böcklin's most iconic and grim paintings.

The Visage of War
Dali creates a haunting and visually striking image in protest of the horrors of war.

The Smiling Spider
What wonderfully eerie and sinister image. I do find it intriguing that Redon's spiders have ten legs...

Bat-woman
An absolutely awesome image that just screams "Goth".
posted a Quick Tip about Conan the Adventurer. September 24, 2010
Conan the Adventurer
The quintessential image of Robert E. Howard's pulp adventure hero Conan! Frazetta's work here is just exquisite. This is, undoubtedly, my favorite painting of his as well as one of my favorite works …

The Lady of Shalott
Agatha Christie took Tennyson's words from the Lady of Shalott "the mirror crack'd from side to side" as the title of one of her novels. When she faced reality and looked out the window instead of at …
posted a Quick Tip about Lady Lilith. July 29, 2010
Lady Lilith
Rossetti's depiction of Lilith is classic and gorgeous in its own right, but unlike Collier's imagining, this Lilith seems less empowered and more vain. Still, it's a stunning painting.
