From the deepest, darkest depths of two of the most creative minds in all of human history comes
THE ENCYCLOPÆDIA BIZARRE
Featuring the lore, mythology, and illustrations of never-before seen hybrid creatures such as Sniders, Sceels, Squirsquitos, and other beasts whose names do not begin with the letter ‘S,’ THE ENCYLCOPÆDIA BIZARRE is better than The Sun Also Rises, Tender is the Night, Don Quixote, Anna Karenina, One Hundred Years of Solitude, The Iliad, 1984, Candide, and every issue of Playboy from 1964-1972.

Meet the Creators
James Noll has worked as a sandwich maker, a yogurt dispenser, a day care provider, a video store clerk, a day care provider (again), a summer camp counselor, a waiter, a prep. cook, a sandwich maker (again), a line cook, a security guard, a line cook (again), a waiter (again), a bartender, a librarian, and a teacher. Somewhere in there he played drums in punk rock bands, recorded several albums, and wrote dozens of short stories and a handful of novels.
Jamie Bronson took to reading fantasy and science fiction before he could really draw. He used it as an escape from the real world, to lose himself in the beauty and danger of an amazing other place. That kind of escape provides a certain escapism that appealed to him, and his art is an extension of that earlier desire.
Jamie’s work is meant to elicit strong emotions, thoughts, and a sense of escape. He wants his viewers to feel like they’ve entered a different world, to find themselves elsewhere or otherwise for a moment, to lose themselves in the images.
