Garry Barker's work

I thought it would be important to get a good idea of what I'm working with to create this pitch, so I went to Garry Barker's webpage

There was a mixture of work on the website, I found the work below to be the most interesting to me personally. Stylistically, they remind me of Quentin Blake, but an incredibly disturbing, dark Quentin Blake with it's edgy, sometimes unpleasant content created with rough and scratchy lines. I can see why contextual research such as McSweeney's is relevant, his kind of work really would sit well in that kind of traditional style of typography.
