Slawek Czajkowski Articulates Emotions Through Bizarre Imagery

These one-frame illustrations by Slawek Czajkowski contain bizarre narratives that combine elements from science fiction, erotica and surrealism. The drawings are reminiscent of avante-garde artwork, directed towards inciting an emotional response on behalf of the viewer.

One illustration takes place within a fairly conventional bedroom where a woman is copulating with a green martian as the devil sits idly by and watches. The picture is at first a strange visual piece, but once onlookers begin to dissect the connotations surrounding the characters a narrative of emotion begins to form.

The pictures all have interesting titles that add an element of story to the pictures themselves. 'Coming Out' shows a man looking out of window with a open closet next to him displaying an alien costume, an allegory on how one might feel when coming out of the closet.
