What is Known as the Realms of the Unreal


Thursday, June 28, 2007

Henry Darger isn’t really a comics artist, I suppose, but his work is at least somewhat related. Close enough, anyway, to justify showing this creepy (and inappropriate?) dessert version of one of his hermaphroditic Vivian Girls.

These cakes are currently being sold at the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, to commemorate a Darger exhibit there.

I’d like to see more cakes like this—Jim Woodring would work well, I think. Even better: Rory Hayes.

    Not quite the same, but here’s a Woodring-inspired cake.
