Very little information exists about Vergvotre (and the bio page on deviantART consists only of a glass phallus, so be aware it’s NSFW. I link you to the safe gallery here).

I’m thrilled to announce the opening of The Art of William Basso Store! Basso is a truly gifted artist of all-things-spooky, and now there are limited edition prints available. I bet these works look phenomenal in print.

Susanne Apgar has captured my eye as of late.
From the artist bio:
Susanne Apgar’s artistic impulses appear to have been triggered or perhaps galvanised by a simple surrealist coffee-table art book in her childhood home.

Most pieces are done in colored pencil, which allows for a gorgeous softness and makes the vivid colors pop (and sometimes allows eyes and faces to glow by contrast in that I can only call “exorcismal” intensity).
There’s a lot to look at in the drawings of Anton Vill. Be warned, many are NSFW due to their strange Bacchanalian collages of flesh.
