These superbly intricate spectral, reanimated creatures are the work of Atlanta based graphic artist Jacob Escobedo – most recently responsible for producing a series of excellent designs for American indie rock band Broken Bells.
Jacob Escobedo grew up in Pioche, Nevada, a small desert town three hours North of Las Vegas, surrounded by his father’s horded collections of oddities, old medical books, and encyclopedias. Jacob states that his childhood provided an amazing backdrop for creative experiments and interest in the outdoors. The Artwork I’ve featured here combines organic elements with the psychedelic, and recalls the complexity of Nineteenth Century etchings, the meandering linework reminds of two of my favourite artist I’ve featured here: Russ Nicholson and Harry Clarke
Jacob currently works as the Creative Director for the Cartoon Network’s adult-block of programming, Adult Swim - See more of his Portfolio here: http://jacobescobedo.com/ and the full set of ghostly creatures (with a chance to buy prints) here: http://is.gd/aNZIi
