ABOUT GUELYLAND

"One of the smallest , independent kingdoms in the ciberuniverse. Nothing fancy. Population? Just me, myself and my jaguars, my movies and my books (and, at this very moment, YOU). Hided and secret like Skull Island or Opar, the ancients in Guelyland use to read the scrools of a minor god called Voor-Hes.
Most of the treasures of Guelyland are made of paper, plastic and vinyl.Guelyland dreams with expanding in deep more then in surface. The music of Nik Kershaw has been heard here. There are apes, lots of apes in Guelyland. Woody Allen and Bob Hope visit it quite often. Here we love books (the Kingdoms Library is both celebrated and secret) Here we are atheists but very tolerant and think of god a bit too often and much. Guelyland is, the stuff my dreams are made of..."

PEPE GONZALES



I was browsing my copy of "Marilyn In Art" (Salem House, 1984) looking for my favorite Marilyn illustrator, Pepe Gonzales, when i decided to check him out on the internet.
What?! He died on March, 13 this year.
He was born in Barcelona in 1939 and was especially famous (more in the States then in Spain) for his illustrations of Vampirella, but to me he was the one who depicted Norma Jean with an incredible delicacy not compared to anyone else.
The artist is gone but his art is here to stay, among many many places, in Guelyland.











So good, you don't need to see her face.

Excelentes trabajos!!

Todavía tengo pendiente buscar sus dibujos para publicarlos en el blog y, por supuesto, los datos biográficos que haya de Pepe Gonzáles.
Lástima que haya fallecido.

Un abrazo...
(Aquí estoy, tratando de volver después de unos días con otras ocupaciones... y antes de 3 días de ausencia que tendré esta semana...)
