Ben Brown is an Australian illustrator whose work ranges from the above awesome zombie-like renderings (of David Bowie, Nirvana, The Beatles, and Grace Jones), to a children’s book about a surfing dinosaur. You may recognize some of his more famous band posters, such as the two Pearl Jam ones below.
I love his work because it combines creepy and playful. There is a definite eeriness to seeing Kurt Cobain as a zombie, and it is also a wicked illustration. And while Brown has a distinct style, he is not afraid to try different things and keeps from being a one note.
Check out his site for other works including some skate decks, a Mad Magazine cover, and a lot more zombies and skeletons.
