Bring Me the Head of Darth Vader, 1998

Current Flea-financing does not stretch to these Clive Barker artworks but it is satisfying to internet windowshop regardless.

Clive Barker's artwork expresses an unseen world of fantasy, co-existing with our own reality. His characters, while often physically misshapen and outrageous, portray very human emotions. Perhaps it is for this reason that many people find a deeper meaning within Clive's artwork in a genre too often prone superficiality.

Authorship update: It looks like that first artistically inclined Clive Barker addressing fanciful themes is different from the second artistically inclined Clive Barker addressing fanciful themes. Who knew? Not me at least. This is what I get for pining after the Darth Vader candy dish/ashtray and not reading the rest of the page.
