These Melting Andres Guzman Illustrations are Darkly Demonic

These Andres Guzman illustrations are dark and striking. The depictions of wobbly lined figures engaged in activities like eating fried eggs off pans and engaging with ghostly figures at bars are dark and full of stories.

The artist says he is a creature of the night who mostly concerns himself with “eating large quantities of food whenever possible,” according to his site. The Minneapolis-based artist says he creates his hell-bent cartoons from a number of influences including cartoon, cinema and graffiti. 

These gritty illustrations certainly offer a lot to sink your teeth into. Creative realms like fashion, art and design have always had a fascination with the dark side. You just have to look at the designs of the late Alexander McQueen to see that beauty can be created from dark depictions.
