i heart gary taxali!
through the years, i've admired several illustrators (such as louis darling, who perfectly captured the spirit of beverly cleary's naughty protagonists in the '50s). but the one i adore, head + shoulders, above all others is gary taxali. i first came across his work about a year ago, when i bought aimee mann's latest cd. he did the artwork for it, and i was entranced by his dusty, retro, vibe. plus, his work seems to have an odd current of dread running through it.
i'd love to meet him + discuss where he gets his ideas + inspiration.
