Did your parents ever tear up your anthologies of lowbrow art?
Did you ever receive warnings about how art mags such as Juxtapoz and BLAB! would ruin your mind?
Were you lectured that artists who contributed to such trash could never freelance for Sony, MTV, or Newsweek - or receive awards and honors from the likes of American Illustration, Communication Arts, and the Society of Illustrators? Did your parents recommend you spend time with the more respectable art publications instead?
Then let Mono Taxali whisk away all such foolish notions!
Flip open this book and see for yourself how the brilliant Gary Taxali defied all the rules.
