for large view
The depiction of rage, suffering, gloom, depravity, and the supernatural in illustration and design is often seen as unsettling and offensive, but often these disturbing images elaborate the wildest dreams and subconscious desires of humans in richer form than any text analysis.

Not necessarily conflicting with the belief in a heavenly world, Dark Inspiration invites viewers to redefine the horizons for beauty and morality and savor the exquisite genre with a dramatic and bold compilation of artwork that touches the taboo areas of sex, death, destruction, perversion, and crime. This title features everything from macabre 3-D wall reliefs and hand-drawn illustrations.

Contributors include Kate MacDowell, Audrey Kawasaki, Zhou Fan, Fuco Ueda, Jesse Auersalo, Elizabeth McGrath, John Ryan Solis, and Richard Colman.
