Nate says BUY THIS BOOK!

The Art of Paul Bonner -- Best, most inspirational "art of" book I've picked up in a long time.



  1. Wow, that's some pretty mental, freaky stuff -- and is that Bruce on the cover?!

    I'd not seen his work before. At first glance it reminded me a bit of Richard Corben, then the general freakiness of it started making me think of Alan Aldrige who is an illustrator associated with the Beatles. in particular his book illustrations for the 'Butterfly Ball' & 'Peacock Party'. A bit tangential but do you see what I mean? Soemthing about the eerie, vivid quality of it and use of bright colors. Cartoony but hyper-real at the same time:

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Yeah, I must get this book. Very cool stuff.

    Chuck I like the Aldridge stuff quite a bit.
