IDW Releases Ben Templesmith's Art of Wormwood Collection

SEE THE ART, READ THE STORY, RIDE THE WORM


There's something really spooky about Ben Templesmith's art.  I've recently started reading the 30 Days of Night books (yeah I'm a little behind) and wait until you see Welcome to Hoxford
 Really cools stuff.

IDW Publishing will release Ben Templesmith’s Art of Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse on August 27.  The book collects all the notable art plus a large amount of sketches, unpublished ideas and never-before-seen paintings from his semi-regular, off-beat serial Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse. It includes an original Wormwood short story.

Templesmith’s visual approach, which has been described as “daring, horrific, and sometimes just plain perverse” has gained a cult following for his work in graphic novels including 30 Days of Night, Fell,  Wormwood,Gentleman Corpse and more recently Welcome to Hoxford.  He has said he is influenced by the science-fantasy cosmos of H.P. Lovecraft's Old Ones and the work of H.R. Giger.

Templesmith's black sense of humor, his delicate yet vigorous style, his nuanced but bold use of color, and knack for finding just the right detail to make a panel or page come to life have given Wormwood a huge fan base.

“Wormwood is really just me having fun and trying to throw in as many disgusting perversions of my old childhood influences.  I call it my riff on Doctor Who, if it were more demonologically oriented and written for very juvenile adults with a sick sense of humor”, says Templesmith.
