Published for the first time in 1992, “Flood! A novel in pictures” is a silent story told through images by American artist Eric Drooker.
A black and white New York under a constant rain is the protagonist of the novel, where lonely humans cross the streets, enter the subway, walk anonymously inside and outside while being haunted by the falling water.
Reminiscent of expressionist woodcuts, the style is bold and synthetic, with an emphasis on contrasting environments.

I thought this looked familiar, Faith No More used some of these drawings for their album “king for a day,fool for a lifetime”. Outstanding.
