Teppei Ando - Fantastically morbid drawings depicting the kind of suffering we can only hope to endure specifically designed for the sins we’ve committed
Teppei Ando, 18 Levels of Hell. Murder Dollhouse, 2014.
With the second volume of Murder Dollhouse books I went in a completly new direction, recalling something that terridied me when I was a young kid. I remember going to a HELL museum in Japan and seeing life sized depictions of Hell, each room with it’s own theme.
As an adult I was researching different culture’s ideas of the after life and the one that facinated me the most was the DIYU Hell, in which there are 18 different levels, each with it’s own set of sins and punishment.
This book serves as a guide to each of these 18 levels, a description of the sin and the punishment that will follow. Each level is drawn in detail with a spread-illustration totaling 36 pages of art. Due to the subject matter, I was able to convey for fantastical elements than in my other books and dip into my Asian roots more than I have before.
Go to hell with the second illustrated book on this list based on Chinese mythology, published by Murder Dollhouse. Fantastically morbid drawings depicting the kind of suffering we can only hope to endure specifically designed for the sins we’ve committed. - Alexandra Naughton
Murder Dollhouse vol.1
I am very proud of this comic. I am a big fan of old pulp comics and they served as inspiration for starting my animation work. With this zine/comic I was able to pay tribute an earlier era in all their glory, complete with fake ads and all. This book contains 2 stories, primary between them is ‘The man who lived in their attic’, the true story of a strange fellow who managed to do as the title suggests for 15 years unbeknownst by the home owner. Also featured is a full color story, ‘She made me feel 4 inches tall’, which serves as more a straight tribute to pulp horror.
Very fun read for everybody
My best seller, How to Survive 9 to 5 is a darkly comic companion book to those who work at a full time at a monotonous soul sucking job, or a warning to those that don’t. Written and illustrated to put YOU the reader into the stories and topics explored, including THE BREAK ROOM WARS, PERFORMANCE EVALUATION, WATER COOLER JUG and many more!
