Illustrations by Paul X. Johnson.
i love these illustrations, they have a brilliants awkwardness!
I love the last one, he’s like a cross between a hipster lumberjack and a real lumberjack, or a real lumberjack that wants to be a hipster. Or a Wes Anderson character.
oh yea, love this… especially the one with the titanic sinking

They are all really Awesome, I like this 20’s Noir Crime Stories atmosphere in it, It reminded me of “the Black Dahlia”, “Agatha Christie” and the game “LA Noir”:D
My most fav. are the First and the Fourth:)
Is it weird that I find the first one…sexy? Actually, I’ve never really felt compelled to call drawings sexy but I think basically all of these are somehow!
The color combinations. The subject matter. The expressions. They’re all so brilliantly eerie.
Love the classic feel!
Like the woman’s expression in the sinking ship one. She’s all “Oh Christ, do we really have to get up? I was so comfortable.”
Good stuff! i like the one that has the Betty Page type of look and the shades!
Steel romantic!!! Brilliant! artworks are great.
This illustrator should do an Ayn Rand Graphic novel.
Dispassionate outlooks are why I live.
Love the picture of the woman that is “part of the wall”, very unique!
