Artist Fionn McCabe has produced a series of works that combine the spookiness of a horror film with the graphic appeal of a comic book.
The illustrations are all rendered in black and white. This monochromatic color scheme brings the scenes and figures Fionn McCabe depicts into sharp relief. There is a sense of vividness to the works that is strangely lost when one views more realistic styles of visual art. This may be because the scenes portrayed by Fionn McCabe are so out there that one is encouraged to suspend disbelief.
The illustrations may be macabre but they are also whimsical. Indeed, these are the works of a lush imagination. This point should not be lost. Illustration is an art form that, if properly executed by the artist, gives almost free reign to creativity. Fion McCabe illustrates this point.
