Boris Artzybasheff

The art of Boris Artybasheff certainly qualifies as weird. You can sample it in a recent reprint of one of his classic books, seen to the right.

Or, you can admire some of his covers for Time magazine.

Those are some pretty interesting covers, I might have to check that book out.

Is the backhoe in the first picture doing a pelvic thrust with an anthropomorphic phallus? Also, I like how you put the picture about India next to the do-it-yourself man (was that on purpose Paul?)

"But it's the pelvic thrust that really drives you insane!"
