Although morbid and dark might be the first descriptors that come to mind when viewing the work of Paul Jackson, an artist based in Toronto, fantastical and detailed follow close behind. Paul Jackson depicts everything from skeletons exploding from the bodies of humans and animals alike to images seemingly experiencing digital glitches for a turn at the surreal that many will appreciate.

Working with pen and ink, Paul Jackson creates illustrations that are incredibly realistic save for the subject matter itself. Beautiful Decay notes that "there is a strong element of life and death his Jackson’s work, as many of his drawings contain half living creature and half skeleton." Although not made for everyone, the level of patience that goes into each intricate work of art is impressive.
