On Gorey

October 6, 2010 at 3:36 pm (Art, drawing) (, , , , )

The Autumnal season is upon us once more, and this inevitably brings to mind one of my all-time favorite artists: Edward Gorey. It seems like forever and a day since his works have graced my correspondence, beginning with the All Hallows Eve celebration, someone always has me in mind for this time:

and continuing thru year’s end and the coming of the Yule and a new one:

Snow, ice, death and bizarre garden parties are the themes which come most to mind and which, oddly, others of my acquaintance seem to associate me with. Gorey and I, kindred spirits, I say … oh, and toss in a bit of Chas. Addams to top it off!
