Death (from The Particle Tarot) by Dave McKean, 2000

Maybe it's just me, but I think there's something genuinely mean about people who don't like Dave McKean's artwork. Not that I'm the biggest McKeanian out there, mind you, but I always felt that proclaiming to the world not to enjoy his works is almost like saying that you don't like listening to music or that the Brothers Grimm were bad writers.

I basically don't trust anyone who says either.

So if you happen to be in L.A. (... and you should, because remember that you need to go see Jared Joslin's exhibition!), you have until Saturday to see the captivating works from Dave's Persistence of Vision series at Merry Karnowsky Gallery.
