Here is an introduction to the illustrative world of Jesse Auersalo.
I was introduced to his work thanks to the December issue of Juztapoz, who described his work as 'often dark and intimidating but the attention to detail and meticulous rendering contrast to create strong iconic imagery that can shock and fascinate in equal measure.'
I do love a good bit of controversial art, so these illustration are just up my street. I love the lack of (with exception to the blue haired figures below) colour, and the lack of expression.
I am pretty sure that if these illustrations had been created around 1914, Jesse would have ended up in the same cell as Egon Schiele.
If you love Jesse's illustrations enough you can even buy a t-shirt from here,
