15 + Dark Humor Illustrations that’ll Make You Crave for More

These will definitely leave you craving for more.


These creepy and somewhat discomforting paintings are made by a young artist from London named Nathan James. When we look at these paintings they kind of remind us of Salvador Dali’s The Persistence of Memory or reindentation of Margaret Thatcher’s portrait by Marcus Harvey. In a biography in which the artist Nathan James describes his series ‘Creepshow’ he said “the lives and worlds of the underclass, failures, perverts, and slackers, rather than beautiful, successful people. Bleak comedy and personal tragedy sit uncomfortably close together in James’ characters, which draw on both the failed industrial background of his childhood and the current mood of insecurity and paranoia present in contemporary society.”

Although these paintings can be interpreted in a number of different ways we have explained them in their most apparent form for our views.
