If Cook & Logue sounds to you like a pair of Victorian body snatchers, their art wont disabuse you of the notion. A sort of Hatch Show Print for the children of EC Comics, their gleefully macabre posters, prints and T-shirt designs come emblazoned with bedrock horror iconographyremnants of a childhood misspent with Famous Monsters, Roger Cormans Poe adaptations and Dark Shadows reruns. Small wonder graphic designer Richard Cook and pin-up/poster artist Robert Logue (yes, the Royal Court of China/Shakers co-founder) have become favorites on the horror-convention circuit. The gruesome twosome kicks off their month-long show at Bongo Java East Nashville with an opening reception; see cypocryphy.com for samples of their work.
