Grim Reaper by Anthony McCracken

My take on the Grim Reaper. Whenever I draw Death I like to make him out to be much more menacing and less human. I wanted to draw a beast, something cunning and with improbably evil teeth or fangs. To me Death doesn’t always need the dark robe and hood and scythe, to me he’s more than that.

Ink, ballpoint pen, Sharpie
Heavy Paper (117 g/sq m)

THANK YOU REDBUBBLE for the Homepage Feature 4/17/13

Born in Northern California, I’ve made and studied art most of my life and my favorite things to make are from darker tones and subjects. Since I was very young I’ve pushed myself through requests, so feel free to ask me for a personal work.
