Impressive collection of illustrations from a guy named Nick Wortham. Dark, black-heavy, detailed, loaded images with a flair for the what? Occult? Spiritual? Weird? I don’t know, but there are lots of runes and mystical-looking shit flying out of various eyes and hands and stuff. There’s also an occasional, super-interesting fusion of collaged textures here—I see car fresheners and dollar bills inserted sporadically throughout these pieces. Reminds me a bit of painter Heidi Elise Wirz’s stuff. This guy can draw. Metal bands should hit this guy up for sure, he’d kill. Really nice work. –Keith Rosson (Nick Wortham, 972 Stanford Ave., Oakland, CA 94608)
