(link:) A quick Heinrich Kley web round-up

German editorial cartoonist Heinrich Kley (1863 - 1945) produced wonderful, whimsical, lyrical, cynical and often profound illustrations that are a joy to behold.

Here's a few links to places around the web that feature his work...

- There are beautiful gallery pages at Coconino Publishing.

- Here's a good capsule bio at lines and colors.

- More bio, more gallery at Scream Online.

- Just a few more images, but placing them in context with other works from fellow editorial magazine artists of the period. Check it out at Graphic Witness.
