Stained Inside Out: A Selection of Brush & Ink Drawings 2013-18 By Bob Rob Medina

This is a massive collection of art from Mr. Bob Rob. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, he did the cover of Razorcake #94. The pieces are colorful and often pleasantly saturated with ink, like a glimmering pool of paint. The subjects of the pictures are mainly bands and assorted punk people. Some pictures ran in the Denvoid and the Cowtown Punks (2015, Robot Enemy), which is an oral history of the ’80s Denver punk scene. And some illustrations are slated to run in its sequel: Denvoid and the Cowtown Punks: 2, The Kolorado Krew. Each piece is accompanied and with some autobiographical context. Definitely worth reading for sentences like: “My first encounter with Klaus Nomi was right after my friend Jimmy and I transformed from being quasi cholos to wannabe punk rockers.” Fans of Tim Kerr and Chris Shary take note. –Daryl (Robot Enemy, bobrob.bigcartel.com)
