John Kenn Mortensen may not be the best known illustrator, and that is a crime. His drawing style is reminiscent of the late great Edward Gorey, and his subject matter is similarly dark, if not so morbid. The weird, creepy, monster-infested world the humans of Sticky Monsters inhabit is eerily serene and beautifully dark. And the monsters themselves? Well, every one is filled with character and personality, even if that personality consists of empty, blank-eyed wondering. Anybody interested in illustrative mark-making could learn a lot from the pages of this book, I certainly have, and will continue to do so for a long, long time to come.
