As my artist's statement explains, my work is utterly incomprehensible and is therefore full of deep significance. -- Calvin and Hobbes

Illustration Friday

Since it's Illustration Friday and also the birthday of the late Edward Gorey, I'll leave you with some of the fun images of the man who paved the way for the contemporary gothic illustrator.  Prolific writer, illustrator, creator of the whimsical and macabre, Edward Gorey... influencer of artists, musicians, poets, film makers, costume designers and beyond.  The illustrator who even won a Tony for costume design himself!  Happy Birthday Edward! You inspire me.

Things to Ponder

Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches. -Andy Warhol

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
