Enigmatic Illustration

I don't think I've featured any illustration on the blog yet, so here's some good stuff. I randomly discovered the work of Chris Van Allsburg while browsing a bookshop today - he's a children's illustrator but it didn't stop me buying a copy! I'm getting on the bandwagon about 25 years late but never mind... His books such as Jumanji and Polar Express have since been transformed into major films.

I'm a big fan of the enigmas set up in 'The Mysteries of Harris Burdick' - beautiful drawings of slightly subversive scenes, accompanied by fantastic one-liner prompts for stories.
