Upper Playground releases Awful/Resilient, the newest book from acclaimed artist Alex Pardee. This new collection of work expands upon the previous work showcased by Alex in Awful Homesick, to bring us a broader picture of the extent of his twisted genius and the dark themes that run through his work. 172 pages fills the book with entrails and decapitations, the gaping maws of razor-sharp teeth, improbable appendages, and suppurating fleshy masses, yet we discover a vein of goodness and humanity. Awful/Resilient features 250 detailed illustrations that have made up the breadth of Alex’s career and measures in at 8.5″ x 11″ in hardcover. It is available now at the Upper Playground online store.
