Clever and Creepy Illustrations of Modern Authors as Monsters

If writer and sometimes cartoonist Lincoln Michel‘s macabre illustrations of modern lit masters has taught us anything, it’s that themes of alienation, societal fragmentation, and anxiety can really take a toll on an author. In this case, it can turn them into monsters. We suspect “Bone Didion,” “Haruki Murderkami,” and company would appreciate Michel’s humorous and creepy twist. The series was created for Vol. 1 Brooklyn, but Michel dragged the literary skeletons out of the closet once more on Twitter. Take a closer look in our gallery.
