Creatures and Ives

Artwork, Bizarre, Humor

Artist Chip Trout has a goal. For 91 days he’s going to take a lithograph from a tattered Currier & Ives book and make some…adjustments to it. Since everything is better with monsters, Chip took images that featured lots of action and placed creatures of his own design into the image, often times changing how it could be interpreted. Below are 20 of the images that Chip has done so far, but you can check out others, and follow him all the way up to day 91 at the site CreaturesandIves.com . It should be fun to watch.
