During a recent visit to a friends place in Austin, I was introduced to the recently released Alphabet Series by Mark McGinnis. My friend had purchased one of the prints at Austin gallery IF+D. Like most young adults, I appreciate humor in all of its forms, especially in the art that goes into my home.
Intended to spoof the alphabet cards that we all remember from grade school, the Alphabet Series by Brooklyn based artist Mark McGinnis are sure to make you laugh and question your humor at the same time. Of course, not everyone will love the series as much as I do-- that is clear--but others will surely be eager to get their hands on their own copy as soon as possible. The sampling here is among the tamer of the bunch (my personal favorites are H and M). If you'd like to see the rest, you can see (most) of the series here. The prints are a very reasonable $75 a piece.
