no better way to begin than to send you somewhere else:

from Ward's series of Alice reimaginations

As someone who has for years, despite any and all attempts to learn to draw something useful, been filling her sketchbooks with vaguely melancholy cute girls dressed in whatever she wishes she were wearing, I would have been sold on Barnaby Ward’s stiletto-clad ladies alone. But add cityscapes, machines and monsters composed of labyrinthine organic designs, and it’s done. I’m in love.

Aside from a jam-packed illustration gallery, there’s a very beautiful short comic on his website, as well as a web version I have begun working my way through of his new book.
