Geek Love

Description

These are illustrations for the book ‘Geek Love’ by Katherine Dunn.

I wanted to try illustrating with a different set of materials – masking fluid, quink and bleach. The images focus on the climax of the book, and the set of characters with their various physical attributes becoming less important than the fire consuming them.

The first figure, Chick, is arranged at the centre, with the members of his family surrounding him, like a crucifix.
