Whenever an artist infuses their work something abnormal or grotesque, the results can be startling; however, this cannot be said for the work that Ruth Munro creates.

Ruth Munro is a freelance illustrator who incorporates many fantastical and mundane elements into her work. After graduating from the University of Brighton, Munro began to take her work more seriously as her passion continued to grow. Ruth Munro's illustrations contain a sinister amalgamation of human and animal characteristics. The art itself is well detailed, with particular attention paid to coloring and spatial coherence. With many characters from the animal kingdom depicted with personification, the illustrations question the reality of nature and the human condition. According to her website, Ruth Munro "draws inspiration from psychology, stress, good films, vintage trinkets, animals and nature."
