The Dark Imaginary World of Ruben Ireland

Sitting firmly within a dark world of fairytales is the work of London illustrator Ruben Ireland. Gothic maidens are his favourite subjects and these women are drawn in the context of black beasts, skulls and haunted phantoms. It is a world realised in black and white, with the odd splash of colour. The graphic finish to his illustrations provides his art with a strong edge.
