Love Like Blood: The Superb Macabre And Gothic Artworks Of Abigail Larson

Abigail had ambitions of becoming an opera singer and joining the circus while growing up, and although neither of those ended up working out too well, she has been able to find a more suitable career for herself in the world of illustration.

Abigail works primarily with pencil, ink, watercolor, and Photoshop, creating unique mixed-media illustrations.
She delights in the strange and archaic, so when she’s not busy creating, she can likely be found basking in darkness, watching re-runs of Dark Shadows, traveling, researching bizarre myths and legends, or spending time with her favorite long-leggedy beasts, ghouls, ghosts and other things that go bump in the night.

Her greatest inspirations are fairytales, folklore and ghost stories. The works of Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, the Brothers Grimm, and many classic gothic works of fiction, such as Dracula and Frankenstein have always stirred her imagination.

Her greatest artistic influences are illustrators such as Arthur Rackham, Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, Maurice Sendak, Edmund Dulac, Kay Nielsen, Elizabeth Shippen Green, Edward Gorey, Harry Clarke, Dorothy Lathrop, John Bauer, Jennie Harbour, Aubrey Beardsley, Jessie Wilcox Smith, Yoshitaka Amano, Marjorie Miller, master artists Alphonse Mucha, Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, and John William Waterhouse, as well as animators/directors Don Bluth, Hayao Miyazaki, Tim Burton, and Sylvain Chomet.

Abigail’s work has been shown extensively throughout America from NYC to Los Angeles, as well as galleries in London, Paris, and Madrid.

Her illustrations have been featured in various publications including Spectrum Fantastic Art, Art Fundamentals, The Graphic Canon of Children’s Literature, Rue Morgue, and Digital Artist. She’s worked with many companies, including DC/Vertigo, IDW, Titan Comics, Pelican Books, 3Dtotal, Syfy, and Sideshow Collectibles.
