Heavy, Man

As a recent post will attest, I was introduced to the wonderful world of children's book illustrator Jim Flora. And while I am not advocating that you go out and purchase the following silk screened print from a record cover off of eBay, you have to admit that it would be quite the kidlit collector's catch:

At the very least, I wouldn't mind seeing this as a t-shirt. Can you dig it?

M, L, XL, or XXL?

Any thoughts or editorializing on the NYTimes Ten Best Illustrated?

There is an anthology of his work available for $19 on amazon -- The Mischievous Art of Jim Flora.

That's hilarious.

You're bleeding edge, girl. I saw it here first yesterday. Now I just got Aesthetic Apparatus' newsletter - turns out they worked with Meester Flora's estate on this one. I love AA - ever-so-nice midwestern boys. They make absolutely gorgeous silkscreen prints on great paper, so it's well worth the price. Thanks for the tip!

from the AA newsletter:
OH MY GOOD GRAVY GOD! This is months in the making. So, we've been working with the Jim Flora estate, Irwin Chusid (author of 'The Mischievous Art of Jim Flora', the soon to be released 'The Curiously Sinister Art of Jim Flora' and 'Incorrect Music' fame) and Flora archivist Barb Economon to begin creating limited edition screen printed reprints of some of Mr. Flora's more famous album covers. We've started with probably his most
famous cover, Mambo for Cats, and if all goes well we will be moving on to other cover prints and art prints in conjunction with the release of 'Curiously Sinister...' early next year.
