Artist - Vukus. Illus.

*Appearing SATURDAY, SUNDAY & MONDAY

I’m an award winning independent artist using traditional media to create imagery of surrealism that skirt the edge of horror.

I personify the fears and emotions experienced as an epileptic. I focus on my own personal experiences with absence and tonic clonic seizures, memory loss, and depression. Incorporated into my work is mylar, a translucent material, to achieve dreamlike and ethereal imagery; this creates an important presence within the illustrations that addresses the intangible nature and uncertainty of this chronic neurological condition.

My work can be seen in the book “Investigation of the Extraplanar: A Grimoire of Creatures and Oddities”, with volume two of the series releasing in early 2018. Alternatively, my work can be viewed on my website vukusich.com
