These illustrations by Robert Nicol are very whimsical and undeniably fascinating. Robert Nicol is known for creating paintings and illustrations that try to make sense of life. While he works, he thinks about concepts of love, boredom, time, understanding and fear. These concepts are reflected in his unusual artwork, which includes anything from gory images with dripping blood or severed limbs to men with houses as heads.

The worlds he creates have odd elements, such as the picture of people at gunpoint, the multi-colored horse bleeding from the mouth or the triangles raised from the ground. This English illustrator creates his strange pictures by uses acrylics and soft, dreamy colors, which seem to soften the emotionally intense content of the works.
