GEORGE ORWELL AND HIS MAGIC PENGUIN DRAWINGS BY BLAIR GAUNTT
"Clever, literate and graphically accomplished!"
- Bill Griffith, Creator of Zippy the Pinhead
"Blair Gauntt is an amazing virtuoso talent who harvests the culture voraciously. The line between “Art” and illustration is blurred here. Also — and certainly not the least of all — Blair has a sense of humor similar to my own. I’m not sure if that works to his advantage or not."
- Skip Williamson, Underground Comix Legend
Gauntt's madcap mash up of the iconic with the moronic provides plenty of giggles and guffaws, not only for the literati but also for the incognizant, unwashed masses. Great stuff!
- Jay Lynch
"Artist/writer Blair Gauntt is the acclaimed master of hilarious pop culture juxtaposition, and you'll find out why in "George Orwell and his Magic Penguin"! You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll thank God you have eyes when viewing his humorous wild take on everything from Charles Nelson Reilly to beehive hairdos to Allen Ginsberg! The perfect book collection for insightful, intelligent, worldly and well read individuals who like a good poop joke every once in awhile!"
- Mitch (The World's Best Artist) O'Connell
““The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.”
