We recently received an email from illustration representive Richard Solomon featuring samples of his clients works around the themes of apocalypse. As Amelia Gregory notes in our look at creative trends for 2012, such nightmarish visions are going to be much in demand this year, so we've shared them with you below.

These exceptional works cross both digital and craft media, from painting to linework to vector design, but all share a view of the future that's anything but positive.
