Illustration // Thursday, November 24, 2011
Santiago Caruso's work is both magnificent and macabre. In his book, La Condesa Sangrienta, he depicts the murder of 650 girls by the Countess Bathory. The book, written by Alejandra Pizarnik shows the beauty of the women that were murdered, and also the bizarre fascination of the killer.

Seth Clark

Illustration // Wednesday, November 23, 2011
Based in Pittsburgh, illustrator Seth S. Clark's series of drawings of abandoned houses is a haunting tribute to the past lives of these constructed places and their sad yet oddly beautiful states of disrepair. Each image holds its own personality and history, making it more akin to a very human portrait of dereliction than simply a run-down object of our own creation.

Iain Macarthur

Iain Macarthur's work can be described as surreal in a different way. Inspired by cartoons, he takes the faces of people and transforms them into a bizarre and wonderful entity that can be seen in his artwork.

Paul X. Johnson

Illustration // Tuesday, November 22, 2011
Paul X. Johnson lives by the ocean in England. His artwork has a palette of muted colors and vacant stares from the young women illustrated within them. His artwork, however, still shines in an interestingly mysterious way that brings conceptuality to a peak.

Sam Thomas

Illustration // Tuesday, November 22, 2011
Based in Sydney, Australia, Sam Thomas has a fascination with symmetry and skulls. The symmetrical aspect of his artwork gives a solidity that allows the viewer's eye to grow from the center of his pieces to the surrounding areas, which are filled with beautiful animals, faces and skulls.
