Have I been under a rock? Where have I been that I've never heard of Harry Clarke
before? This afternoon I saw a documentary (shown through the Boston Irish Film
Festival) about Harry Clarke, Irish illustrator and stained glass artist. His
glass artwork is breathtaking, and his book illustrations and sketches are
fantastically intricate. I was surprised by how much his line drawings remind me
of Beardsley's stuff. We're talking a pretty decent foray into potential sick f*ck
territory - a good amount of grotesques, distorted people, and skeevy eroticism.
Needless to say, I was absolutely friggin' fascinated. Must learn more now.

And on a slightly less serious note ...
-- See Eric Emote!
