Murray Somerville renders creepy, slightly grotesque illustrations with a child-like spontaneity. His wild imagination allows for bizarre subjects, ranging from puking punk beetles to fighting toasters. Somerville’s works incorporate muted brights, reminiscent of the Dr. Seuss children’s books. While each drawing may be disturbing, the artist’s collection is endearing and highly relatable.
