yuri didrichsons's drawings rock. Turns out the on-again, off-again bassist of the Deadly Snakes makes delirious drawings. In his charcoal universe, giant seals take over towns, camels disappear in the desert and a wolfman gets spooked.My favourite features a guy wearing a mascot panda head standing next to two girls who've fallen into a hole in the snow.
These are drawings to fall in love with, for whatever sweet or silly reason. In one image, the Muppet Show's resident geek, Gonzo, with his hooked honker, poses next to a foxy lady.
In the faux high-school-art-class style practised by other young Toronto art darlings Joweta Kepa and Bradley Philips, Didrichsons beautifully observes the ennui of a "restless young artist.
