They Need No Introduction Comments (0)


Alejandro Mogollo did the original illustrations in my Encyclopedia Madonnica 20, and I think he is extremely gifted. He captures famous faces and figures perfectly.



Check out his new Facebook page for a taste of what he can do.


I'm sure he takes requests!

Illustrator Robert de Michielle Dies @ 57 Comments (0)


Artist Robert de Michiell's pop-culture illustrations have been a staple of Entertainment Weekly and many other publications. He was about to enjoy being exhibited at ClampArt Gallery (531 W. 25th St., NYC) in a show called On Fire Island, but sadly, he lost his long fight with cancer this week.

The show will go on, even though de Michiell's journey has come to an end.

A statement from his representative follows:

Rootin' For Him! Comments (0)


Pegasus Street Artist—the British-based Chicago boy who designed the cover for the limited edition of Encyclopedia Madonnica 20made his U.S. debut in a special exhibition at the Hollywood Museum.

No, that's not a wax figure in front of him, that is the real, live Ruta Lee—who looks flawless at 80, don't you think?

You can get EM20 here or here (it's not really out of stock, ignore that), or I will soon post the few leftovers I have on eBay. After that, I'm going to see how many promo copies (unnumbered) I have left, and will sell those for a set price.

Left Behind Comments (0)


I was sad to miss a photo exhibition devoted to the work of Kit Cowan, the late husband of TV writer Michael Ausiello. Now, his work is preserved at Kit Cowan Archives. Ausiello notes of Cowan's focus on his hometown:

13x19-2Kit had a love/hate relationship with Millersburg. Like an ex he could never quite get over, his hometown simultaneously captivated and haunted him. When people would ask where he was from, he would explain that it was a small town in Pennsylvania that lacked a single traffic light. There was always a tinge of pride in his voice when he described the smallness of Millersburg, too. I always read it as, “Yep, I grew up in the middle of nowhere , and I got OUT!”

I don't believe in an afterlife, so I feel like we have to have fun, experience beauty, help people and make art while we're here. Hopefully, some of what we do—and we're not all heroes, life-saving surgeons, or presidents—will be left behind and will affect people in a positive way after we leave. I think Cowan's work is lovely and touching. I love the color tones, and I love that the images seem to have a presence, even without human beings in them. But like a lot of art, there is a human being in them, their creator.

Enjoy his work and enjoy your life.
