Boneface

I remember getting off the train, looking up and getting distracted by a poster. Stopped in my tracks, I stood staring at Queens of the Stone Age’s …Like Clockwork poster. As soon as I got home I “investigated” (quick Google search) who the illustrator was. It was Liverpool-base creative, Boneface.

You may already be familiars with Mr. Boneface’s work, especially if you are a habitué to Society6. A few years ago he did a series of illustrations depicting some of our most-loved superheroes severely injured. So severe, I believe if they had experienced a beating like that in their comics, they would have probably just quit.

That grittiness is a definite draw of Mr. Boneface’s work. Coupled with deft linework and vibrate colours, you don’t need many more reasons to keep and eye on this canny illustrator. You can find more of Mr. Boneface’s work on his website.
