Rashomon... I thought about posting a link to the distinctive art style of Sam Weber, or the 25 greatest comic book covers ever made, or avante-garde Hungarian photographer László Moholy-Nagy, or this collection of Russian and Ukrainian posters--but instead, I decided to tell you all about the site where I found every one of these links: Rashomon, a new and (thus-far) consistently interesting collection of interesting visual arts links.

Great site and what a clever javascript image viewer they're using.

Nice stuff. Its interesting that he links to the unicorn tapestries just yesterday. I've been passing around to friends this really fascinating New Yorker article from a few weeks ago concerning the Unicorn tapestry and some eccentric mathematicians. A great read.

yankeefog-seriously, nice link, I just couldn't resist that little bit of Homer Simpson.

The Steranko Captain America is no near as good as Shield #4. That's a classic.

And doc, what list is complete without Bill Sienkiewicz? Moon Knight, anyone?

Damn, I wish the internets were more useful. The "Morpheus" ish had a great cover. Any Moon Knight cover could have made the list. Too bad I can't find one on the goog.

That is a nice site, thank you.

Anyone check out the Rifleman comic cover in the lower left of the 12 Dumbest Covers of American Comic Books page?

Wow, Marxchy, that's really something.

The Hans Bellmer post sold me on the site immediately (added it to my Bloglines subs). Bellmer was one of those artists I desired to emulate as a (rubbish) art student. Seeing one of the dolls (might have been a photograph) is the only thing I recall about my last visit to the Tate Modern; it was so mesmerizingly disturbing.
