"There's evil in the world.".George W. Bush
And lots of it.
The question is, just what does it look like? A politician? An ex-girlfriend?
Your landlord? Your boss? Hanna Arendt said it was banal. The Red Sox think
of the Yankees.
And in this hilarious, disturbing, quirky, and brilliant little book, noted
illustrators Nicholas Blechman and Christoph Niemann present a catalog of
their own misanthropic imaginings. The two met in 1997, when Blechman was
art director for the New York Times Op-ed Page and Niemann, now a frequent
contributor to the New Yorker, had just started working in New York City.
As their personal and professional friendship began, they found themselves
spending countless nights together in Brooklyn bars, drawing up images.wry,
comic, arch, painful.to represent the sex affairs and political scandals,
acts of terror and acts of war that were the news.This professional work
led to a personal passion, and so the illustrators chose to draw a small
series on rosier subjects like maps and love. But as the world around them
grew darker, they decided to explore the other end of the emotional spectrum
and devote themselves to evil.
100% Evil is the result: a thoughtful, comical, and.at times.joyful book
that just goes to show that sometimes it's good to be bad.
