Paul Flinders has a great series of odd, vaguely alienesque characters.
In a quote from 2011, he states:
My poetic dimension in visual art flows from my sense of wonderment. I approach experience with optimistic curiosity and a particular attraction to the creepy and absurd.
When strange recollections allow the imagination to run riot, waking experience feels like a dream and it causes us to question the reality of the moment with a sense of awe. This is the very state I attempt to achieve visually.
