Recently at GOSH! we received a whole passel of sketchbooks by legendary illustrator, comic book artist, musician and film maker Dave McKean.
McKean is, of course, most well known for his many collaborations with Neil Gaiman, most notably on his covers for Gaiman’s ‘Sandman’ series, but he is equally celebrated for many fine art projects, Children’s books, CD covers and book illustrations, including Heston Blumenthal’s forthcoming ‘Big Fat Duck Book’.
‘Squink’ collects many of McKean’s pen & ink sketches both old and new; published to coincide with a recent Parisian exhibition while ‘Postcards from Barcelona’ and ‘Postcards from Paris’ are travelogues inspired by the work of Miro, Picasso, et al and the cites they lived and worked in.
Get ‘em while they’re hot!
