The work of Alex Gross is brilliant and strange. I don’t expect it to be a flavor everyone will enjoy, but I hope that you take a good look at everything he does and you may find something in the messages he tries to convey. What I love about his art is that unapologetically stirs less pleasant ideas about modern society. It starkly paints the picture of consumerism, environmental destruction, and social breakdown. That’s what I’m getting out of it at least. As I said, check out his website and get a feel for yourself. Here are some choice selections:
Here’s one of his “cards”. He has two pages of cards he made that depict a classic view of fantasy/sci-fi characters. I think some of my geek audience will like them.
Sorry for such huge images again. WP doesn’t seem to let me shrink them on this particular theme, so deal. 😀
