The surreal drawings of Tom Mead

I am a pen and ink artist and work on paper primarily depicting strange figurative characters. I use these characters as a means to illustrate my perceptions about the world around me. The themes I tend to focus on are isolation, horror and a subversion of classic folk tale iconographies. My main influences are Edward Gorey, Remi Wyart, Laurie Lipton and the Pop Surrealist movement as a whole. I am passionate about drawing and creating of any kind and wish to keep expanding on the work I create in as many different mediums as possible.~Tom Mead
