These illustrations are a pair commissioned by Electric Sheep for their anthology publication entitled 'The End'. Each piece represents an iconic David Lynch film, attempting to capture his surreal and prevailing imagery. The illustrational focus lies with the main character's faces as Lynch documents the subsequent disintegration of that characters world. Facial expression, noise, human anguish and experience are strong identifiable features within Lynch's work so as a result these pieces run parallel with this fascination of an individuals decaying and fragmented reality. They were created using hand rendered pencil portraiture and photoshop.
