art by Richard Sala

Richard Sala grew up with a fascination for musty old museums, dusty old libraries, cluttered antique shops, narrow alleyways, hidden truths, double meanings, and late night walks. He is known for an expressionistic style combining elements of horror, mystery, and whimsy. Often compared to figures like Edward Gorey or Gris Grimley, he has collaborated with such luminaries as Art Spiegelman and Lemony Snickett, and has illustrated a rediscovered script written by Jack Kerouac. His illustrations and comics have appeared in RAW, Esquire, and The New York Times.
