Description - What The Hell Are You Doing?: The Essential David Shrigley by David Shrigley

By turns hilarious, satirical, and brilliant, David Shrigley's full-page illustrations - a combination of drawing, comics, photography, and sculpture - are sui generis: uproariously funny, pleasantly unnerving, and, most of all, really, really cool.

Neither graphic novel nor art book, What the Hell Are You Doing? celebrates the surreal world of the artist who created Ants Have Sex in Your Beer and To Make the Meringue You Must Beat the Egg Whites Until They Look Like This - the man Dave Eggers calls 'probably the funniest gallery-type artist who ever lived.'
