Schorr's formative years were spent in a world surrounded by the atomic and space ages, by Saturday morning cartoons and racks of comic books at the local drug store, a land populated by Revell models, Mad Magazine, Testors Glue, Mickey Mouse and Rat Fink. Further fuelling his developing image bank were the seemingly endless icons from television's early years: Robbie the Robot, Mighty Joe Young, and reel upon reel of animated toons from the likes of Tex Avery, George Pal and Max Fleischer. The compulsion to replicate these characters led to a formal art education and exposure to a new set of influence. His best work to date is collected in this beautifully detailed book.

Todd Schorr is perhaps the most important practitioner of Pop Surrealism (or 'HiLo', or 'Lowbrow', a name I hate), after Williams. Only Mark Ryden has acheived similar levels of critical, popular & financial success. As one of many young painters who work primarily with acrylics, Schorr has provided a powerful argument for the possibilities of acrylics. 'Dreamland', one of the most stunningly gorgeous monograph's to be published by Last Gasp, a company with a long history of beautifully designed artbooks, includes many of his largest and most intricate canvases, a series of works in which each is dedicated to a specific pop cultural theme: Horror, Science Fiction, Cartoons, Comics... the complexity of his compositions and the level of detail he achieves is unmatched in contemporary art, demonstrating the intrinsic value and possibilities afforded by acrylic paint.
At 11" x 11", 140 pages, this is a generous format that utilizes space as efficiently as possible. After a brief and interesting introduction, it's all about the art; on one page, the finished painting, on the facing page, Schorr provides sketches and preliminary paintings, sometimes with accompanying stories based on each work. The cover is a wraparound detail of one of his large homages, in this case the 'Cartoon Gods'. The front and back covers have no text at all; instead, the titles are stamped onto the translucent plastic slipcase, an extravagant touch that makes this monograph one of the best designs I've seen at this price-range. The fact that it features some of the most essential art produced in the last 20 years makes it a must-buy for artbook aficionados.
