Today's Flashback is more of Birthday wishes to the late, great, complex Edward Gorey.
My first exposure to Mr. Gorey's work was the animated intro to PBS Mystery Theater. I thought Mr. Gorey was British, because his art had an English sensiablity to me,and his art was the opening of a BBC series, but he was American!
I enjoyed the "Gothic" themes, in the black & white frames, with a surprised peek of color. In fact, one of my favorite color combo's is black & white, with a red contrast. I wonder if this was influenced by Mr. Gorey?
Without further ado.........
Happy Birthday, Mr. Edward Gorey!
