Pig Triptych - Part 2 by Amandine Urruty

According to French artist, Amandine Urruty, she loves drawing hair, dogs, people, painting on big walls and eating sausage. As a big fan of all of those things as well, it was pretty easy for me to fall instantly in love with Urruty’s most recent, curious black and white drawings..

Done using pencil and graphite, Urruty’s work reminds me a bit of another unique artist, Mark Ryden when it comes to her incorporation of historical or pop-culture characters and hunks of meat (which Ryden is especially fond of) into her somewhat unsettling creations. There’s also a sense of age to Urruty’s drawings that is reminiscent of the eerie beauty of black and white photography from the early 1900s.

In the dreamlike images featured in this post, you will a myriad of characters from your childhood (depending on your age of course), mingling amidst Urruty’s delightfully freaky scenes. Such as Slimer of Ghostbusters fame (as well as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man), Cookie Monster, fictional TV cat enthusiast Alf, a Garbage Pail Kid, a bunch of Muppets, and a tiny version of Chewbacca in a dress holding Urruty’s favorite snack, a sausage.

Her latest book, Dommage Fromage (which is amusingly translated to English as “Damaged Cheese”) which features the works highlighted in this post, can be purchased here. Tons of images of Urruty’s mischievous works (which have a bit of a timely Halloween theme running through them) follow.
