Wes Craven: August 2, 1939 – August 30, 2015

Few will leave a mark upon culture as indelible as the one that Wes Craven left when he died at the end of August. 

As The Guardian's Stuart Heritage noted, such was Craven's mastery of the horror genre, he was able to reinvent it three times during the course of his career. First, with The Last House on the Left (1972), next with Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), and lastly with Scream (1996). 

He gave us decades of screams and giggles, the least we could do honour him and his work with a scribituary. 

Scribituaries are Scriberia’s own take on the traditional obituary, and they give us a chance to do what we do best. As a specialist animation, graphic facilitation and illustration agency, we believe in the power of pictures to tell stories and connect people to content and its context.

A life, illustrated in a way that balances fact with feeling, and story with style, is the ultimate challenge for us as visual storytellers. We hope you enjoy them.
