Morbid and dark, Yan Wei Illustrations depict a world in which sightless children brave sinister beasts, turning reality on its head (literally, if you view the tornado images). In a style I find common in cryptic graphic novels, the black and white images makes you ponder the artists motives.

Beijing-based Yan Wei Illustrations is definitely drawn to the child’s experience. But instead of making it all rainbows and sunshine, children’s most basic fears are brought to life. A nightmare I wouldn’t want to have, these images still make for incredible illustrations. Stats for Disturbing Surreal Drawings Trending: Older & Warm
