More Whimsical Book Paintings by Mike Stilkey (7 pieces)

Over the years, we've featured the wonderfully whimsical work of Mike Stilkey a few times (see here and here) and now the artist is back with some fresh new pieces. His new, solo show, called Certainly Not Without Serenade, is at Gilman Contemporary in Ketchum, Idaho. (The artist was kind enough to send us a preview.)

Stilkey uses a fine mix of ink, colored pencil, paint and lacquer to create works of art that are filled with fantasy. Witty and wonderful, they certainly breathe new life into old books.

The show runs from now till April 15th, 2011.
