Re: Whomever is your favourite artist?

I'm afraid I'm not passionate about 'serious' art but illustrators I love are Coye, Finlay, and Utpatel. Knox was one of the greats. As was Bok who did the definitive illustration for Pickman's Model.

Re: Whomever is your favourite artist?

Just wanted to throw Harry Clarke and El Greco into the mix. Two of my favorites...

El Greco's "View of Toledo" always reminds me of "Doctor Locrian's Asylum."

Some great names. Harry Clarke and Hannes Bok, yes indeed.

I think Richard Powers did terrific work for Ballantine Books too. Surreal and disturbing.

By the by, Hell-G: have you read the new(ish) biography of Austin Osman Spare written by Phil Baker?

Re: Whomever is your favourite artist?

I'm only familiar with Harry Clarke as an illustrator (his Poe illustrations are of course the stuff of legend) but yes, I love his work.

Yes, I am, Mr Samuels. I am skimming through it (as I do with all non-fiction) at the library and am finding it an excellent read.

I agree, very underrated band indeed. It´s a shame that Akhenaten quit Judas Iscariot and his other projects.
