BEAUTY: Illustration--Matthew Sharack

Talented artist/illustrator/doodler-sketcher Matthew Sharack creates these wonderful, off-kilter images of spindly Victorian buildings.

His daily bog has a lot more of his charming art:

In a way, his work reminds me of the legendary Edward Gorey, but the first place my mind went was the marvelous, whimsical Christmas film by Wendy Toye entitled "On The Twelfth Day." I remember seeing this film in school when I was a little boy, and there is something about Matthew Sharack's shapes, and especially the colors, that make this retro connection for me.
