Edward Gorey: Amphigorey
I have to explain that I am from Germany and many many artists, illustrators, and books are simply new to me and I love discovering new titles, new artists, and new ideas. This book I found at a flea market. "Edward Gorey: Amphigorey". I simply loved the style, the neat illustrations, and the fun stories. It inspired me to try out some sharpie sketches and ink sketches. His drawings are a mix of simple line drawing with delicate structures in between.
The style is really good, it has kind of a melancholy in it. The dark structures in a mix with simple layouts and calm spaces are just fascinating and a joy to the viewer.
