I AM NOT INSANE – 20 Drawings by Michael Gira

Michael Gira of Young God Records has just released a limited run of 500 books of original artwork. These books were privately pressed at Stumptown Printers in Portland, OR and are hand-numbered, signed, and presented with the care and love of a personal letter to a friend. Head over to the Young God website for thumbnails and ordering info.

From Michael:

“As with my songs, I have no idea where these drawings came from. Usually, I stare at a page and wait for something to appear – either a short phrase or an image. I then begin fleshing it out, and it transforms itself along the way. In any event, familiar subjects appear – abjection, cosmic fury and dismay, addiction, love, bliss, hope, and naturally a good bit of a perpetually adolescent fascination with gross, icky things – and in this case the work was modeled with an unsteady and crude hand wielding a Sharpie on a blank white 8 ½ X 11 imaginary Ouija Board.  The original drawings were done on cheap copy paper, blotched liberally and repeatedly with Whiteout, drawn over, cut up and pieced back together with clear packing tape etc. So, the final printed, more graphically clear version on nice paper is higher in quality than the drawings themselves, in the end. Anyway, maybe there’s something in them you’ll find useful for your own purposes.”

  3. Hey there would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re using?

    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I
    must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price?

  4. Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Other then that, very good blog!
