    Very striking. Interesting though how the book cover is markedly different from the illustrations inside. Guess the contrast will be a positive one.

    Wow! I love his work, and these are just delicious. One of my favourite books, too.

  • Maya

    I still can’t get over these. It’s so rare that someone is able to capture an essence of what you feel about a piece of fiction and illustrate it so beautifully.

    Sam Weber has blown up this last week! He’s everywhere, and deserves to be. His skill and style is just amazing. I’m just a little jealous myself. .

    Relooking at them I’m still quite thrilled. But the second illustration starts to degrade a bit. I’m not sure whether it’s the hair, the particles or the pigs head – or the combination. It looks more like a cover of a Dr. Frank pulp-novel. The rest are staggering.

    Beautiful and disturbing. Perfect for the book.

Artist Spotlight: Cleon Peterson


The violent, mesmerizing, and brutally honest work of artist Cleon Peterson. In some paintings demon-like characters are attacking people, in other paintings similar actions are being carried out by uniformed figures. What is perhaps most disturbing is the realisation that we are drawn to such darkness; titillating news headlines, and bloody movies. The violence is inside of us all. More images below.

Artist Spotlight: Michael Dandley


Striking and thoughtful series of gouache and ink works by Newmarket, New Hampshire-based artist Michael Dandley. “Side Effects” is concerned with the disturbing and ultimately incompatible ways lands and oceans are changed to accommodate our modern conveniences. More images below!
