In Revelations & the Stupid Creatures, John Murphy pairs his distinctive Stupid Creatures with the Book of Revelation, one of the Bible's most descriptive and interpreted sections. A multi-headed dragon; beasts that resemble a lion, calf, man and an eagle; seven angels and more get commissioned treatments from Murphy. At the same time, illustrator Liana Finck complements the creatures with her expressive take on this epic tale. Together, the two artists have created an illustrated Book of Revelation as vivid as William Blake's.
Revelations & the Stupid Creatures is the first in what will be an ongoing series of artists, working in all mediums, responding to the Book of Revelation.
Liana Finck studied fine art and graphic design at Cooper Union College. A former Fulbright fellow and recipient of a Six Points Fellowship for Emerging Jewish Artists, her work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Forward and Tablet, among other publications. She lives in New York City.
