If this work looks familiar, it might be because Gary Taxali’s illustrations have appeared in many magazines as well as Amiee Mann’s album art. Taxali’s illustrations have a rich inviting quality about them that draw me in to tell me their story.
“Gary Taxali visually blends now with then. His style, inspired by vintage comics and advertising art, is repurposed with the goal of communicating the ironies and comical essence of popular culture. His work is at once alluring and endearing. Despite the vintage look, he is neither maudlin nor nostalgic. His imagery is rich in satiric verve.”
