Great giant chickens by John Brosio.
Ruprecht von Kaufmann has some amazing dark and dreamy paintings. You can see his 2012 work here: http://www.rvonkaufmann.com/index.php/works/in_2012
I was alerted to Kaufmann’s work by Francis Vallejo's twitter feed. Vallejo's another super talented artist (check out his life drawings!), and he's constantly tweeting about new inspiring artists. if you like that sort of thing, I highly recommend following him on twitter.
So good! Clever, and I dig the minimal, yet decorative, handling.
“Effects of depression/addiction on children”
Another addition to my addiction series.

Tim Bower. One of my all-time favs. So sick.
What a beautiful piece by Nicolas Debon! Love the effects of the vibrant underpainting (just one of the many high points of this piece). Nicolas has a personal website here, but I found a google search for his name yielded more results.
Here’s another particularly wonderful cover of his: Le Tour Des Géants
Thanks to Kagan McLeod for tweeting about this and bringing it to my attention.
Jeez Louise, Koh does it again. Beautifully odd and captivating.
This new illustration from Jonathan Burton is one of those images that’s just darn fun to look at!
And that floating head cracks me up. I didn’t even see it the first time.
I love the fierce, wild energy of this piece! And the fact that it’s the Shadow is a major bonus.
The Shadow commission piece I recently did. I really loved the old pulp comic feel, but I wanted to add more intensity to the character this time around. It was also composed to work as a variant cover or as a pin-up. I’m really glad that the comic world has brought this classic character back successfully. -L
