Imprisoned artist Michael Lee Ford has recently released a book of his art entitled "The Isolated Art of Michael Lee Ford."

His drawings remind me of the work of author/artist Clive Barker and are very powerful and filled with detail. Much of the art from the book will also be displayed in a showing of prisoner art in Philadelphia.

Implications - The featured video shows off some of Michael Lee Ford's colorful and interesting artworks while angry rock music blares in the background. The jacket of the book explains that it brings a "fascinating look at the world through the mind's eye of a man serving 35 years." Michael Lee Ford was sentenced to jail for robbery in 1989.
