Reilly Branson is a cartoonist and illustrator from Chicago. He uses both traditional and digital mediums to invite the viewer into impossible universes of fantasy, science fiction, and horror. He builds illustrations of immaculate architecture and eerie, yet enchanting landscapes, influenced by the German illustration style of Wimmelbilder (teeming image). His cartoons range from whimsical and lighthearted to critical and melancholic, all of relating back to our bizarre cultural climate.
