I've blogged about Barron many times. You can see some pictures here and here. Yeah, I'm a dorky fan girl but I'll proudly admit it. I pick up books and publications with his work in them. His books are in my top 10 favorites-EVER. They are treasures that should be on every artist's shelves.
You can still get copies of Life After Black at cover price. Do NOT buy it on amazon. They want an insane amount of $ for it. Go here. Those of you in NY, can pick it up at the gallery.
Carl also has voiced plans to reprint Storey's Marat/Sade Journals.
You can find Storey's work in Sandman: Endless Nights.
I'm very excited about Art Revolution, which comes out at the end of July. It features Storey's work among many others. It is very high on my want wish list.
In the meantime, you can still get copies of various Storey publications through Vanguard. I would strongly recommend picking up copies of The Edge and Watch 1996.
For those of you in L.A.,
July 9–August 15 2009
Opening Reception Thursday, July 9, 5-7 pm
Bert Green Fine Art is located at 102 West 5th Street (at Main Street), Los Angeles CA 90013. Telephone 213-624-6212. Hours are Tuesday throught Saturday 12–6 pm.
If you like Barron Storey you should also check out David Mack, Dave McKean, Bill Koeb, Kent Williams, Greg Spalenka, John Copeland, Bill Sienkiewicz, James Jean, David Choe and David Choong Lee to name a few.
Many were students of Storey, as was the wonderful and talented, Juliana Coles.
Bill Koeb (whose work I also adore) has signed copies of his Rememory book here on etsy.
Finally, I'm not a stalker. I just know what I like and I like damn good art! I also like to know WHO CREATED the art that I like. It's maddening to me that so many people don't know artist names and who created art that they enjoy. C'mon folks, get off your keisters and learn about your favorite artists. ;)
