Barr Art

Glen Barr draws robots, creatures and vixens that live in a seedy yet swinging 1960's universe, drenched in the haze of a post industrial hangover. Flash enabled and ever-so-slightly NSFW

ever-so-slightly NSFW?

Where do you work, Hands? I wanna work there too. Now that I'm probably going to get fired from here.

Nice. In a similar vein to Rory Skagen.

Barr also created the Slateboy mascot for Film Threat, and illustrated some album covers
for the 3-D Invisibles. He also provided artwork for the graphic novel Brooklyn dreams.

It's probably because of my lifelong interest in cartoons, but I get much more out of artists who've made worlds you can imagine visiting, as opposed to those who just have styles. So this is neat. Thanks!

I actually knew Glenn back in the 1980's when he was doing flyers for the local comic book shop. I still keep in touch with some friends of some friends, its good to see he seems to be doing well for himself. Thanks for the link.

Cool use of the 50/60's lounge style. Jesus Tour is my fave.

'R' for sexuality/nudity and flavor...

Heh. Thanks, Manos. I just recently noticed something by Barr I really liked, maybe in Spectrum #11 (which is great), maybe elsewhere... I have a note somewhere reminding me to Google him.

Any relation to Ken Barr (who has, by the way, come a long way since his '80s comics covers)?
