Artist of the Day- Richard McGuire

There was an article in last Friday’s NY Times about this artist. He’s a graphic novelist and in the 80’s created posters using a character he named Ixnae Nix that he posted up here and there in NYC alongside graffiti by Keith Haring and Jean Michel Basquiat.  In order: his posters, some pages from his novel Here and a couple of New Yorker covers. He’s also a toy designer and in the 1970’s played bass in a band, Liquid Liquid.

 

Please check out the American Masters series on PBS. The episodes have been insightful into the process of being an artist.
