100% Evil is a book by Christoph Niemann and Nicholas Blenchman. It is illustration based book where both artists made illustration of random "evil things" using pen and ink. Evil rabbits, evil furniture, evil toilets, shoes, flowers. All very random. The point of it was to liberate illustration from magazines and advertisements and draw for the sake of drawing. The book consists of 180 black and white drawings. The book appealed to me because of the randomness of it, and that its purpose isn't really useful for anything. One cool part of the book was where it was split in the middle there was a 24 page battle between the 2 artists. Each drew their armies on a side until they met in the middle in a mutual drawing of battle.
