Take a look inside the illustrated book “Dirty Poetry” by Ivan Moody
Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch has unveiled his new book of illustrated poetry, Dirty Poetry from the Contagious and Twisted Mind of Ivan L. Moody, and if you are planning to buy it, we can give you a preview of several other pages.
It’s a visually intriguing job with Blake Armstrong creating eye-catching illustrations to accompany Moody’s “chimerically twisted” prose. The singer’s words are scrawled into the artwork, often accompanied by dark figures or simply dark. It is a beautifully designed book as shown by the additional five pages below.
âOf all the projects I have undertaken, this is something really out of the ordinary, completely unorthodox and withoutâ creative walls. âIt is by far the strangest thing I have ever done ( and that means something), “Moody first commented when the book was announced. “I had no idea how it would turn out, but luckily – between Blake and myself – I’m delighted with this first edition of Dirty poetry. “
“Dirty poetry definitely stands out as one of the freest and most unique creative experiences I have had in my career. Ivan’s overall vision for this book was so twisted and enticing that it would have been hard to pull away from it. Our collaboration has been really great, and I think the love shows on every page. My only hope is that readers appreciate the book at least half as much as we worked on it. It’s gratifying to be a part of something so strange, unexpected and special. “
There are 104 pages in all, filled with wonderful illustrations alongside the singer’s captivating words. Check out the page preview below and if you like what you see, Ivan Moody’s Dirty Poetry, vol. 1 is currently available through the Z2 Comics store.
