Albert Guest (Cryptid Comix)


Albert Guest is a Vancouver-native illustrator with a penchant for the surreal, the terrifying and the grotesque. With artistic roots deeply entwined in horror, science fiction and a deep infatuation with the natural world, his work is dark and eerie, but cut with an edge of sardonic humour. He will again be exhibiting with Cryptid Comix (formerly WWCC) with Melody Park and Mitchell Dieleman.

Albert is the creator of the webcomic Hogarth Hangedman, a surreal, genre-bending “weird-west” starring the mysteriously reanimated skeletal corpse of a centuries-dead gunslinger. The comic has recently finished its second chapter, which will be available for purchase at VanCAF 2018, as well as a reprint of the first chapter.
