This illustration, created for the San Francisco Examiner's Magazine section, was actually done years ago - some time in the late 1990s, I believe (note the presents in Santa's bag!) But somehow it seems more pertinent than ever...
Richard Sala grew up with a fascination for musty old museums, dusty old libraries, cluttered antique shops, narrow alleyways, hidden truths, double meanings, sinister secrets and spooky old houses. He has written and drawn a number of unusual graphic novels and has provided illustrations for a variety of clients all over the world.
His books include THE HIDDEN, DELPHINE, CAT BURGLAR BLACK, THE BLOODY CARDINAL, VIOLENT GIRLS, VIOLENZIA and Other Deadly Amusements, IN A GLASS GROTESQUELY, PECULIA, MAD NIGHT, THE CHUCKLING WHATSIT, THE GRAVE ROBBER'S DAUGHTER, HYPNOTIC TALES and several more.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a blog where I just share images and things I like. I've transferred most of these over from years of posts on Facebook where I also wrote a little bit about each post. I hope to find time to add those descriptions later on, but for now I'm just posting images. To see my art you can look for me on Instagram or Twitter or Facebook or my other blog HERE LIES RICHARD SALA or my tumbler:
