If you’re not following Brazilian graphic designer and illustrator Butcher Billy on Instagram, then switch that up, sharpish. You might have seen his wonderful Black Mirror episodes as comic book covers earlier this year, or his music icons as superheroes before that, but his latest project sees him re-imagine famous love songs as Stephen King book covers. And it’s so good. The kind of thing that just makes you not want to draw anything ever again.

Butcher Billy says of his latest work:

“The concept is to look at the dark side of love by the vision of pop culture, bringing aspects of its classic stories to play the true meaning of the songs – this can be completely subverted or stressed strangeness, while paying tribute to the vintage design of the original covers.”

But enough preamble – here’s the full lot:
