  • 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!

  • M.N.

    The color combinations. The subject matter. The expressions. They’re all so brilliantly eerie.

  • Love the classic feel!

  • Name

    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.”

  • Sebastian

    Good stuff! i like the one that has the Betty Page type of look and the shades!

  • Steel romantic!!! Brilliant! artworks are great.

  • Acid Minnelli

    This illustrator should do an Ayn Rand Graphic novel.
    Dispassionate outlooks are why I live.

  • Joe

    Love the picture of the woman that is “part of the wall”, very unique!
