    I think DON KENN maybe he uses it from the spanish DON meaning gentleman. But of course I am not sure on that but it would make some sense that way.

    That's exactly what I thought too! It's totally “Where the Wild Things Are”!

    Really cool! I like all of these a lot

  9. Redhanded says:

    No they're not. MTV's been murdering art since the end of the 90's (right about when the Real World taught the executive types that mindlessness sells and that substance and what the 'M' stands for are irrelevant).

  30. Glorylehman says:

    awesome, good, and creepy:)

  31. Mistmann says:

    Very good and unusual drawings. Of course, the comparison to Gorey is inevitable, but there is also a resonance with the turn of the century Norwegian illustrator, Theodore Kittelsen. Sorry that this young artist has left the planet.

    okey i really need the artist to respond to this because this freaks me out…

    when i was about 3 years old i had a nightmare which i can remember to this day (i’m 21 now) I swear i never saw these drawings before in my life… but mr John Kenn… you just EXACTLY drew this particular nightmare!! Those bulky monsters standing outside that little house… the two gostly girls hovering above the yard…the giant by the wall.. i seriously dreamt this when i was a toddler! Every detail fits! O.o

    i wondered all my life why the heck i always remembered this particular nightmare from so long ago.. and now i see this! :S

    Someone needs to explain this freakyness to me…

  41. says:
