Canadian-born illustrator Peter Diamond began drawing as a young child. His first taste of professional illustration involved zombies, skulls, brains and blood for punk rock posters in High School. Thus, the slight morbidity and strangeness of Peter Diamond's intricate art is right in line with his experience.

The work in his portfolio pulls from a wide range of inspirations. Some art is reminiscent of his punk rock days, while some seems to nod towards anime art. Regardless, Peter Diamond has undeniable imagination and skill.
