Tentacled Victorian Illustrations
Dan Hillier Replaces People's Appendages with Squid Limbs

By: Jason Soy (Rockstar) Mar 7, 12

If you thought eating calamari was gross, you probably don’t have the stomach for these Dan Hillier illustrations. The talented artist has crafted a collection of bizarre images using old Victorian renderings and adding in tentacle appendages where people’s hands, arms and legs should be. The concept literally qualifies as a nightmare for most people, but these depictions are so overwhelmingly intriguing that viewers can’t help by sift through Hillier’s impressive portfolio in its entirety.

Dan Hillier alters Victorian drawings using a dip-nib pen. Often times, the changes he makes are so seamless, you’d think the images were the original artists’ intended work. It’s this kind of brilliant execution, coupled with a wild imagination, that has garnered Hillier solo and group shows in London, Paris, New York and Turin.
