    @Greasemonkey, LOVE Ernst Haeckel. A band I like has merch with some of his illustrations on it.



    Click here for more on the band/more merch. (related)

    Edited to add: <3 Darger. Anyone who doesn't know the story behind Henry Darger should definitely check out that dude's history.

    @ imaginarypeople - Not sure why Booth's illustrations are more amazing because they are not engravings. Nevertheless, Booth was one of the most influential masters of line and storytelling. Clearly Wrightson was a scholar of Booth and took on many of his techniques(Frankenstein and Silver Bullet being clear examples). Anyone who wants to get better at line drawing and ink would do well to study this man's work. thank you for the post!

    I've seen Aaron Horkey's stuff in Hi Fructose before. Or Juxtapoz? I dunno, I've seen it in print. It's goddamn lovely.

    a russian artist that uses dead butterfly wings -

    a guy who recreated bag end with 2,600 balloons -

    and here is an artist that paints with his own blood -

    @William Joseph Dunn, I'm lucky enough to pass a few pieces of his each morning on my way to work.

    You know, I kind of have to wish that the dude who painted with his own blood was painting landscapes or fluffy bunnies.

    Besides writing kick-arse poetry, William Blake also produced a bunch of awesome and disturbing art:

    I'll leave some pretty by Craig Cole to make up for what could probably have been posted in the IDDNTST thread.

    Cole's stuff is always a visual banquet.
