Louie lends make-believe a Victorian touch

Some of you Les Claypool fans out there might recognize this character, known as Candletop Hastings, from the renowned bassist’s press kit.  For others, this may very well be your first exposure to Queens, New York’s Travis Louie.

So take a leather chair, unbutton your smoking jacket, spark a stogie, and enter the painter’s tastefully sepia-toned world of antiquated make-believe creatures.  Brought to life by Louie’s use of the old-fashioned portrait genre, these figures peering out from the frame replace who I expect to see with who I’ve only seen in storybooks and nightmarish dreams.

And it’s unnerving to remark how close a resemblance some of these figures bare to some of my relatives.  Their personalities command respect, or solicit affection, or grin and bear the capture of their likeness, with such believable affect that I’m sure I’ll be double-taking everyone at the table at the next family gathering.

Maybe if I look close enough, and suspend my disbelief, I might find something I hadn’t seen before.
