Jordan Monsell, an illustrator from Los Angeles, is working on a unique series of posters, which he fills with numerous references to pop culture. Inspired by Bosch's paintings and the books "Where's Wally?", the artist decided to write works that can be studied for hours and find something new every time. So in 2018, he created the first poster, "King's Country", in which he hid references to 170 stories authored by Stephen King.
