The resurgence in the popularity of illustrative art can be attributed to an array of factors. Although the acceptance of graphic novels as something more than just comic books has been established for quite some time, when McSweeneys released its all-comics issue in 2004, the mainstream medias reaction elevated the medium, its words and images, to something beyond genre. As a result, such drawings and illustrations have found their ways into marketing campaigns, ads and galleries. While the work of individual artists varies greatly, much of it strikes an irresistible pose, whether viewers are staring at enlarged heads on distorted bodies or a shot-dead bird, its killer and a birdhouse both crying. The work is at once disturbing but oddly attractive. Here at MBP we have dubbed this quality EdgyCute. For more than a decade, Harry Saylor, owner of Orbit Gallery, has been an advocate of art ranging from Neo-Pop to Low Brow, having represented the likes of Gary Baseman, Kathie Olivas, Travis Lampe, Angelique Hautkamp and Michael Caines. With EdgyCute: From Neo-Pop to Low Brow and Back Again, Saylor utilizes his vast expertise in the field to compile a contemporary look at practitioners of this aesthetic, from the famous to the unknown. With more than 100 examples of this work, many of which have been commissioned for this book, and artist interviews, EdgyCute is sure to appeal to anyone with an interest in bleeding-edge illustration.
