Art Inspired By Kurt Vonnegut’s Kilgore Trout
Toronto-based artist Alëna Skarina has created a series of illustrations based on the fictional fiction of Kurt Vonnegut’s most recurring character, Kilgore Trout. Trout, who was modeled after science fiction writer Theodore Sturgeon, appeared in many of Vonnegut’s stories. Skarina, deciding to pay homage to the character and to Vonnegut, crafted these charming and witty illustrations using only black, red, and yellow ink. Pictured above is detail of a “Dirty Movies.” Click through to see more of the series–entitled Gilgongo, each one after one of Trout’s fictional short stories.
