Tasmanian Feral

Illustration // Tuesday, February 21, 2012
Tom O'Hern is artist and illustrator based in Hobart, Tasmania with a strong graphic sense of decrepit gore and decay. His high-contrast, sickly rendered portraits are disease ridden, wounded and bandaged with a healthy dose of gortesque humor thrown in for good measure. My new favorite Tasmanian. Thanks Tom for the submission!! x
