    I don’t know why, but it just felt like it was time to post some hellacious artwork on this blog. These images were created by Gustave Doré, a French artist, illustrator, sculptor and engraver who lived for a relatively short time during the mid-1800s. (After which, I assume he was also “en-graved.”)

    During his brief life, he illustrated dozens of well-known books, from Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven to the Bible.

    The first image below is a sympathetic portrayal of Satan from Milton’s Paradise Lost. The second is from Dante’s Divine Comedy, where Charon herds sinners onto his boat so he can ferry them across the River Styx to be judged.

    Both images are appropriately gloomy but beautiful all the same. Enjoy!
