The UK-based illustrator Nick Sheehy created a series of sketches featuring deformed creatures. The intriguing monochromatic illustrations seem to be out of a bizarre fairytale.

Using pencil and paper, Sheehy gives life to a world full of imagination and eccentric figures. Different animals are blended together resulting in strange-looking beasts. Long and pointy whiskers, sharp teeth and chunky furs are some similar features of these mythological beasts. Evil goats, angry red pandas and boars are prominent animals in the series.

Nick Sheehy describes himself in his website as someone who "enjoys drawing various weird things for himself," judging by these art pieces, this passion is not only evident, but it's also the force behind the creation of these disturbing but fun sketches.
