I love finding out about dancers’ other talents. Chicagoan Hogan McLaughlin has both a web gallery and blog project that house his multiple non-dance artistic forays. His in a cabin in the woods series, besides underlining an apparent obsession with cabins, calls to mind a broad set of influences from Paul Klee to Shel Silverstein to Tony Millionaire. More drawings depict doe-eyed assassins and floating, Gorey-esque wraiths, while cry baby (above) and others remind me of the Expressionist grotesquerie of Egon Schiele. Worth checking out.
