Biography

Glen Baxter, nicknamed "Colonel Baxter," is a British cartoonist, noted for his surrealist, absurdist drawings. Born in Leeds in 1944, Baxter was trained at the Leeds College of Art. His images, and their corresponding captions, fuse art and language inspired by pulp fuction and adventure comics with intellectual jokes and references. Baxter's art has been collected in numerous books, and his work has appeared in The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, and The Independent on Sunday. His simple line-drawings often feature cowboys, gangsters, explorers, and schoolchildren, who utter incongruous intellectual statements regarding art and philosophy. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glen_Baxter [Nov 2005]

Biography

Glen Baxter was born in Leeds in 1944. He is known for his idiosyncratic, surreal sense of humor that fuses the absurd with a dry wit. In 1977, Baxter chose to focus his attentions on The Netherlands. In 1979, De Harmonie in Amsterdam published a collection of his drawings entitled Atlas. England, Finland, France and Australia followed in quick succession and in 1998 a major exhibition of his works was held at Modernism gallery in San Fransisco. Known as "the Colonel" to his baying legions of admirers, Glen Baxter is the author of more than twenty books including 'The Wonder Book of Sex', 'Glen Baxter's Gourmet Guide' and 'Blizzards of Tweed'. --http://www.lambiek.net/baxter_g.htm [Sept 2004]
