Wonderfool World

David Sandlin hasn’t made what you’d call a sketchbook so much as a collection of premier art and some interview material, with squiggly inks and explosive color. Gender-bending, body-distortion, and death are big themes here, with scenes that resemble the Sunday cartoon versions of epic Medieval biblical tapestries, or Bosch paintings of Hell. Except… y’know, cheerily marching to fate. A breast from Heaven or a spike from Hell, it’s all the same to Sandlin’s characters, who seem to celebrate having a fate rather than what it might be.
