Stuntkid, Scar and a Cloud of Crows

Morrigan, by Stuntkid

I love this incredible new drawing by Jason Levesque, aka Stuntkid. It’s a portrait of my friend Scar, and the shape of the crows is based on a dress by Mother of London (this drawing was based on a shoot that Jason did with Scar, which can be seen here). The colors and mood in this image take me back to the weirdest tales I grew up with; the somber atmosphere reminds me of the quiet creepiness of Ivan Bilibin, whose take on fairy tales is the most melancholy I’ve ever seen.

    who the heck are you? First wumpskate and now scar? You must be another goth kid who got sick of the scene after Dungeon and Blue shut down. I know I liked this coil house blog.

    The pale girl surrounded by blue-green is making me think Tara McPherson too…if she were ever to illustrate a throw-back “Tales from the Crypt” type pulp horror story (I wish!).

    <3 Bilibin. I’m actually doing illustrations inspired by him to a Swedish fairytale.

    I dig the colors and the crows…curious how it would look in stark black & white. Good stuff!
