A Gorey Chistmas

So Edward Gorey, a man among men in the illustrated world.  His slightly off comics and drawings remind me of a darker Shel Silverstein.  He is an illustrator, a surrealist, and definitely an amazing artist.  My brothers girlfriend has a print of The Gashlycrumb Tinies which is a snipet about each letter and a corresponding character.  It always makes me laugh when I'm in the loo (loo just sounds better than saying taking a piss...well i guess thats english too:) )...Anyways I think his work is smart, subversive, and just perfect for a Jew on Christmas:)

So enjoy and check out the flickr set where these came from to see a bunch more Gorey goodness.
