Panacea by Chris Conn Askew - click to enlarge

My incredibly talented and anachronistically noble friend Chris Conn Askew has a gorgeous new print available. His limited editions normally sell out really fast, cause you know, who doesn't want a lusciously curly lady with velvety puff sleeves and cat scratches on her cheek sitting in a lower jaw hanging on their walls? EXACTLY.

Panacea is a giclee print on 180gsm Hahnemühle paper, signed and numbered by the master and comes in two different sizes at 8”x10” (20x25cm) for $60 and at 14”x18” (36x46cm) for $100. Shipping is an additional $10 to anywhere in this solar system. How cool is that? VERY! Each size is strictly limited to a single edition of 250.

Needless to say that compared to what his prints tend to sell for once they've sold out, that's a fucking steal, children.

Read CC's post here on how to secure yourself a print.

I know it's one of the weirder compliments to give, but whenever I get absorbed by the ancient symbolism of Askew's art, I just cannot help thinking that had he been alive during the times of Dr. Robert Ley, he would have doubtlessly been asked to be Hauptlayouter of the Organizationsbuch der NSDAP. God, I'm truly shit at compliments, but I know he'll get it...

In other retina-tickling news, the obsessive-compulsive Aeron Alfrey of MonsterBrains fame has posted THE absolute Virgil Finlay überpost - one that even the Great Old Ones will enjoy.
