"Nightmare Squid" is based loosely on a vampire squid. The faces around it are the dead particles that drift down deep into the water where the squid will consume them. This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Anthony

Anthony Christopher enjoys exploring what he calls the “darker sides of the imagination.” To let his creativity take full flight, he approaches each blank piece of paper without a clear starting point. From there, his illustrations fill the page and leave no spot untouched. Even the negative spaces feel purposeful and whimsical. “I want people to have to take a close look to understand all the details and hopefully have an emotional connection with the drawings,” he explains. You can definitely get lost in his works – many of them mix words with intricate patterns you can’t see with just a quick glance. His mixture of surreal and abstract makes for eclectic and memorable artworks.
