More Whimsical Book Paintings by Mike Stilkey (7 pieces)


Over the years, we’ve featured the wonderfully whimsical work of Mike Stilkey a few times (see here and here) and now the artist is back with some fresh new pieces. His new, solo show, called Certainly Not Without Serenade, is at Gilman Contemporary in Ketchum, Idaho. (The artist was kind enough to send us a preview.)
