The Outlandish Art of Mahlon Blaine. The highlight for me was Nova Venus.
A short biography of Blaine.
Another smaller gallery, which includes illustrations he did for translations of the works of Hanns Heinz Ewers.

Awesome link. Passed it on to a friend who is interested in early 20th century illustration.

Quite beautiful. Thanks for drawing my attention to Nova Venus in particular. Sad and beautiful.

I like it. Very similar in some ways to Alfons Mucha. Got that whole Art Nouveau thing going on.

To be honest, I was thinking more Aubrey Beardsley than Mucha.

That's some neat stuff, some of it. I liked The Further Side of Silence -- made me think of an outlandish sort of tarot deck.

Interesting stuff. Sorta Beardsley by way of Finlay. Thanks!

Kinda reminds me of Alasdair Gray, too.
