    Jérôme Meynen: Untitled

Jérôme Meynen's illustrations show us the friendly side of blood and gore

Posted by Liv Siddall,

If everyone’s being nice to you this morning and it’s getting to you, counteract it immediately with this gore-heavy, monochrome illustration from French artist Jérôme Meynen. His impeccable 3D draftsmanship and ability to make characters that still look amiable, despite pulling someone’s guys out on a flight of Escher-like stairs, are second to none.

As well as creating his own pretty marvellous pieces of artwork, Jérôme is one-third of Hell’O Monsters, a collective of three rather brilliant artists that “successfully blend their individual styles to create an imaginary universe occupied by hybrid characters such as monsters with multiple eyes, mutated animals, humans with their heads split open.” This isn’t as horrible as you may think, in fact it’s actually quite nice, have a look for yourself here
