How Sweet It Was
posted:
 I put together this montage of artists for the front cover of this cd/dvd package but that's not the treasure here. This is a fabulous collection featuring many of classic Gospel's most important artists.
.





 The package was produced by Anthony Heilbut. We met through my interest in gospel and his expertise. We've been friends for thirty years. Tony wrote the definitive book on the music and it's also available at Amazon.

Chrysler Building
posted:
 Originally this was going to be a more elaborate street scene with cars and people but then I decided I liked it just the way it was.
.
.
This was done a while back. It's about 8 feet long and six feet high. I haven't seen it in a while. It hangs in an apartment in Williamsburg. Anyway, the above images seem related to these, at least in my head.

Here are two more from then. Photos courtesy of Patrick J B Flynn.

Art Chantry
posted:
These were all selected by Bob Newman and posted on his Facebook page Robert Newman Design. In the spirit of brotherhood and internet sharing I'n reposting them all here. Ain't that very twenty-first century of me? Art Chantry has an amazing and amazingly influential body of work. If I started naming his acolytes I might be typing well into the twenty-second century.

Amazon: Some People Can't Surf: The Graphic Design of Art Chantry: Art Chantry's contrarian ways have placed him in the pantheon of great modern designers. Some People Can't Surf: The Graphic Design of Art Chantry is the first survey of this visual iconoclast, who also designed the book and packed it with hundreds of his vibrant images. Gritty, funny, and refreshingly low-tech, his award-winning work has promoted countless bands, social causes, and non-profits. Tracing Chantry's career from his covers and layouts for the seminal music magazine The Rocket, to album covers for such cult bands as Mudhoney, the Reverend Horton Heat, and the Fastbacks, Some People Can't Surf is a comprehensive look at his creative evolution. Complete with commentary on the unusual origins and unorthodox processes behind his work, as well as providing context for his oft-copied look, Some People Can't Surf is a much-anticipated exploration of this idiosyncratic design master.
Classic Comedians Scrapbook

 I saved this magazine since 1978 for the following collection of candid snapshots of some great comedians from a bygone era.

My kids are huge Mischa Auer fans
Actually my kids are fans of or have at least seen the work of most of these guys. I'm giving them a classical education.
 At first I thought this might be a pointless post for Drawger but then I realized that this era of film comedy, among a lot of other stuff, has been a huge influence on my work so maybe it's not such a pointless post after all. When I was a kid I read this quote from John Lennon referring to The Beatles and it's stuck with me ever since, "you see we're influenced by whatever's going."
