    One thought on “Vellevision”

    1. A delightful collection of Vellekoop's work spanning his post-art-school drawings and comics from the mid-80's to his fully-realized, singular visions of the 90s. Vellekoop is a superb artist and colorist, and often manages to impart a complete story with well-rounded characterizations in just one page, with either little or no dialogue (check out his mini masterpieces like "Music," "Day of Crabby Art" and "Parallel Universes"). Anyone who appreciates really good, really funny, beautiful artwork [...]

    2. Such great work; very intricate and perfect illustration and coloring. Vellekoop was way, way ahead of the '60s/midcentury retro vibe, and his drawings were filled with heart instead of the antiseptic "Mad Men"-style look that still holds us in its grip. Also Vellekoop's work is thrillingly, unapologetically gay. It was always such a treat to run across one of his illustrations in the mainstream press.

    3. maurice vellekoop is the first openly gay male cartoonist of my generation whose work I loveand would consider hanging in my apartment - (no disrespect to Justin Green - his Hat sisters are wonderful but )Alison Bechdel is holding the title for out and proud lesbian cartoonistsandthe grandmaster of course is Howard Cruse but he is of my parents generation
