There's a storybook playfulness to Liam Barrett's illustrations that simultaneously evokes Western folk art and modern digital art. So it's appropriate that so many of his pieces feature colorful monsters, coyly macabre cats and devils engaged in nefarious pursuits.

The UK based artist updates his Tumblr regularly with content fit for everything from children's books to art galleries. He doesn't just work in 2D illustration, either, as he's also uploaded images of a charming/horrifying rat puppet that was used in a music video.
