    Katty Maurey: Untitled

Striking yet homely illustration from the talented Katty Maurey

Posted by Liv Siddall,

At first glance you may think that these lovely brushstrokes were the work of a rather twee illustrator, but spend a while with Montreal’s Katty Maurey’s illustrations and you’ll soon realise that’s not the case at all. Bones, children, cigarettes and dark corners are just some examples of the creepy, almost chilling subjects of her work, but there’s naturally some fun, naive illustration and beautifully-designed book covers thrown in for good measure. The skin tones on the drawing of the hand stubbing out that cigarette are pretty unreal. Nice one, Katty.
