Visually striking, there’s a twisted sense of fun – along with what can only be described as a ridiculous sense of menace – in Stevenson’s work collected therein. For example, there’s something very wrong about the pathetic, naked character sprawled on the floor announcing “I wish I had a pound”. Meanwhile, a smiling, red creature tells his smaller, yellow worm-like companion: “Tomorrow I will eat you.”
Stevenson’s characters are deliberately simplistic and seemingly non-threatening in style, yet these often freakish creations utter the strangest things and it is this combination, of word and image, that ultimately conspires to make you laugh – nearly always out loud and in a that’s-fucked-up kind of way.
