Ben Dewey’s Tragic Picture Show

Ben Dewey’s Things Could Be Worse illustrations are an absurd and morose series of life lessons that Edward Gorey would be awfully proud of. He creates them ” … for purposes of instruction; so that one may avoid similar missteps.” Each scenario is delightfully old timey and sets up its characters for a piteous, dismal situation like, “Friendly flag waves all day; nobody waves back.” If the dank darkness of your danky doom hasn’t left you feeling hopeless, click through to witness Dewey’s tragic picture show.
