Gary Baseman's been doing it, Fumie Sasabuchi's been doing it, but I don't think anyone would want to argue that, at the moment, Dr. Lakra a.k.a. Jeronimo Lopez Flores (previously featured here) is the true king of the darkly tattooesque vintage mag reworks.

From this Friday until the end of April, New York's Drawing Center will be celebrating the doctor in a solo show of works on paper simply entitled Dr. Lakra. Details below.
