Cautionary tales often scare children through details of the narrative alone, but Alejandro Dini decided to pair equally traumatizing imagery with already frightful stories. For example, the psychedelic tale of Alice in Wonderland as seen through Dini’s eyes takes place in an apocalyptic setting where mutants requiring medical treatment represent the bizarre creatures Alice encounters. The rest of his images are equally as weird and horrifying to look at, yet at the same time, there’s no denying Dini’s talent.
Alejandro Dini renders images digitally while retaining a painterly aesthetic and a cartoony style. The illustrations’ level of sophistication would suggest that Dini is a concept artist, as he’s able to communicate complex scenes strictly through visuals. By day, Dini works in the video game industry and is currently based in Hong Kong.
