Wylie Elise Beckert has given fun and silly elements to these dark and disturbing images.

The drawings are very nonchalant, as if the characters depicted within each image have grown used to the dark and disturbing lives they lead. The drawing style is very reminiscent of children’s fairy tales except with darker and gloomier colors, which further adds to the effect.

Her pictures somewhat remind me of Tim Burton’s style of characterization as his characters are generally pretty morbid and yet, seem to be quite complacent in their miserable atmospheres. I suppose one would get used to that sort of lifestyle eventually.

Wylie Elise Beckert is an illustrator from Maine who uses a mix of traditional and digital art to render her drawings. Her work has been featured in magazines, card games and advertising.
