really liked it

the drawings speak for themselves.

every morning Winsor McCay woke up. brushed his teeth. put on a starched white shirt and uncomfortable shoes. walked down stairs and had a light breakfast. then went into his study and created the most beautiful surrealist and technically perfect art.

he was a living refutation of the idea that an artist needs to live some sort of rebellious bohemian lifestyle.

some company is coming out with a more thorough collection of his newspaper/editorial works. but this serves as an excellent sample for those who don't want to commit several hundred dollars.
