Polish illustrator Bartosz Kosowski‘s take on Bela Lugosi’s classic portrayal of Count Dracula is an inspired look at the legend.
Kosowski’s minimal color palette brings new life to the horror icon — here, Bela is a swirl of architecture and blood. The character reduced to a Joker-esque crazed murderer. Kosowski’s line work is loose but exact.
He’s having fun with the character, exploring the raw energy of the Count. The blue, as cold as Dracula’s blood. The mouth smattering of red, a thirst for blood. The manic swirl of hair, the fevered lust to feed — constantly in search of new meat.
