Elephants playing keyboards; melting faces; hands for eyes; and monsters… lots of monsters. This is the work of Steve Girard. It’s the type of art that perfectly sums up that weird part of the Internet you find yourself browsing in the early hours. He evokes Gary Larson with his surrealism and recurring character types and there’s even a hint of Robert Crumb to his style. His illustrations are bizarre and disturbing yet at the same time colorful and funny. All in a dark, messed up way.
