Death on the Pale Horse
Fuck Yeah: Paul Gustave Dore
Art Essay

I am a huge fan of illustration, and when I look at Paul Gustave Dore‘s work it blows my mind. His lines have a serene, morbid quality about them that just draws me in and makes me search for the meaning behind each piece. He did not know that he was creating part of what would become underground illustration. It’s ironic – he was Christian, but so many of his works look like they could be covers for metal bands in the here and now. So today, we want to celebrate Paul Gustave Dore’s creative spirit with a huge gallery of his work!
