Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

Charles Burns at Adam Baumgold Gallery, NYC

Permagel by Charles Burns, ink on paper, 2008

A major Charles Burns retrospective opens at Adam Baumgold Gallery tonight. Weeeeeeeeee!

The show will feature 50 of Charles' most iconic pen and ink drawings from the past 25 years. You can expect to see the original designs for some of his Black Hole covers (c.f. image below), as well as art from Skin Deep, Big Baby, El Borbah and Permagel (c.f. image above) - recently published by the deceased revolutionary people behind United Dead Artists - probably one of my favourite artists' collective ever.

In other Burnsesque news, does anyone know where I could get Suskie, Tony & Cob from Charles' Monster Teens (other than eBay, preferably)? I have the other three already, but I neee-eeee-eeeeeed to have them all! o_O
