Not only does the support of the art (stashed books) look fantastic, but the illustration is to die for! How perfect would they look on your walls, instead of a simple painting? You get a dynamic image and also some texture (plus, people will start focusing on books again!!!) ;))
Mike Stilkey is an L.A. artist that does things with a little twist. Yes...the Devil IS in the details!
Using a mix of ink, colored pencil, paint and lacquer, Stilkey depicts a melancholic and at times a whimsical cast of characters inhabiting ambiguous spaces and narratives of fantasy and fairy tales. A lingering sense of loss and longing hints at emotional depth and draws the viewer into their introspective thrall with a mixture of capricious poetry, wit, and mystery.In love with books? In love with art? No need to keep them separated anymore! ;)))From: Mike Stilkey
