19 Deadly Illustrations

From Sultry Mutilation Art to Intricately Grotesque Sketches

— September 1, 2010 — Art & Design
You can get an idea of what's going on in an artist's head when viewing their work; however, with these deadly illustrations, it's probably best not to know the inner workings of the creator's minds.

This featured gallery is the best of morbid sketches and illustrations. From bold mutilation art to villainous illustrations, it can't get more deadly than this.

Implications - With consumers' rising admiration for gruesome, death-oriented products, artists, designers -- even advertisers -- can rest easy that their most shocking and grotesque creations and products won't be received with disgust. Death is an attention-grabbing theme, and one that goes hand in hand with the popularity of shockvertising in today's marketplace.
