    Dieter Van der Ougstraete: Comics

Prepare your quivering eyeballs for the mystical work of illustrator Dieter Van der Ougstraete

Posted by Liv Siddall,

You know you’ve struck gold when you come across illustration work that’s basically the strange love-child of Micah Lidberg and Ren and Stimpy. You’re currently feasting your eyes on the greasy, mystical creations of Dieter Van der Ougstraete, an illustrator from Belgium whose collection of work reads like Grimm’s fairy tles told through the mouth of those pink elephants in Dumbo. Aside from his brilliant use of colour, it’s pretty safe to say that the real charm here is in the eyeballs – that level of panic in the quivering eye-juices is the mark of a true pillar of the comic book community, and someone to buy a print from immediately.
