Neck Face

Illustration // Monday, January 16, 2012
Based in NYC, Neck Face is an artist who manages to imbue humor into violence, locate amusement in horror, and take pleasure in rattling nerves. His work is simultaneously sinister and grim, genuine and playful, toying with the sacrilegious, antagonizing phobias, and triggering insecurities, all with a measure of ambivalence. His distinctive style straddles the line between reckless and deliberate, yet always maintains a sense of immediacy.

Beatrix Cottonmouth

Illustration // Sunday, January 15, 2012
'Once upon a time there was a girl called Beatrix Cottonmouth. She was not very big so she had to eat everything with a teaspoon. One day while living her life she stumbled over a small bundle that was on the pathway in the forest, it was warm and red with big ears. It was a baby owl that fell from the tallest branch, but it was not dead so she picked it up and placed it in her hair where it made a nest...'

Hey, Lazy Eye!

Illustration // Saturday, January 14, 2012
There's nothing wrong with a little R&R, to kick back on a hammock with a refreshing beverage and a good read.  In fact, I love a good lazy eye, they're just so relaxed. Better than being all stressed out and strained, right??
