"Behind the Giacometti"
by sabine7 / October 27, 2005


A world peopled by cowboys and Robin Hoods is presented by British cartoonist Glen Baxter. Food-related humour and artistic references are thrown into the mix to create surreal cartoons of ink and pastel or crayon. In fact, Baxter claims that his website is a place “where surreal humour and tofu collide”. The collisions are bizarre happenings, with all manner of now mainstream foodstuffs (polenta, mini chicken Kievs, omelettes) appearing out of the blue. That they pop up in Sherwood Forest, the Wild West or in art galleries only adds to the weirdness of it all.
