Max Naylor illustrations are like those dreams you have during an evening nap –full of heightened sensations and blended perceptions, the workings of a mind in many places at once. Cityscapes give way to landscapes give way to jellyfish tentacles and bundles of wheat, a well-ordered chaos of concepts and images jostling for space on the page. It’s beautiful, rich, dense stuff – all rendered in a moody monochromatic palette of white paper and black ink. And even when stepping aside from his more surreal creations Naylor proves himself an accomplished draughtsman, depicting London and the English coastline with furious strokes and meticulous detail.
