I am just hoping to introduce you all to one of my favorite artists, Edward Gorey. I mean, come on, the man’s name is Gorey (gory, get it), how awesome is that? Edward Gorey was an illustrator of hilarious, gothic-y Victorian books. Sadly, Mr. Gorey passed away in 2000.
Apparently, the NIN video for the song “The Perfect Drug” was inspired by Edward Gorey, and some scenes reference The Gashlycrumb Tinies.
