Richard Corben

Richard Corben is an amazing artist. His most famous work is Den for Heavy Metal Magazine in the 1970s, at a time when that publication was something special. Back in the days when illustration was considered something different than and less than fine art it was always forgotten that almost all illustrators were also “fine artists” even by the most conservative definition of that term. Corben, for instance, has always produced work for no other purpose than self expression.

His website can be found here.

Christopher Manson’s The Maze

Maze

“I invite you to enter my Maze. I say it is mine, because despite who else I might be, I am the architect as well as your guide. Your first goal is to find the shortest route through the Maze – a simple task, I assure you, if you know what to look for. I have planted clues throughout for your interpretation – or misinterpretation. Indeed, you will be fascinated by the Maze’s ambiguity, stimulated by its mystery, stymied by its riddle. But fear not! I will be with you all the way. Fear not, that is, if you truly believe that my clues or I can be trusted.”
