Clever portraits of modern writers as monsters (pictures)

Monsters of Modern Literature

This series of pictures presents modern writers like you’ve never seen before.

Lincoln Michel is a short story writer, founder of Gigantic Magazine, and editor at Electric Literature. He also draws, and what he draws is incredibly good.

Monsters of Modern Literature is a series of illustrations, where contemporary authors become monster slaves of their own names and most famous books.

In this gorgeous collection of portraits we will see J.K. Growling, Michel Hellbecq, Cormac McCabre, and Haruki Murderkami, among other terribly likable creatures.

The illustrations were created in 2012 and 2013, to celebrate literary Halloween, but they are so great I can’t wait until next Halloween to share them with you.

These pictures are in fact perfect collectibles, and the good news is you can buy them on Etsy, in Wolf+Cloud shop. A single set of six randomly selected trading cards costs $5. The cards measure 2.5″ x 3.5″ each. They are printed on high quality French Paper cover stock.

By the way, if you love to see your favorite authors through the looking glass of talented artists, you should also have a look at Badly Drawn Authors.
