    Got a few of his prints, good stuff.

    I like that one mthrnite. It's creepy without being scary like similar work of that type can be..all the characters look normal/cute but they're doing fucked up shit. Often in that type of stuff the babies are hideously deformed

    Toulouse-Lautrec. A great artist and an interesting, tragically short life.
