Posted in Books, illustration, monsters with tags , , on June 21, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Attaboy has written a book I feel is worth having for the title alone.

Doesn’t this sound wonderful? Look at the contents!

I do not have kids, but would be excited to give this to any little ones in my life. Honorary nieces, nephews and godchildren…your Fairy Gothmother has something for you…

Simon Costin for Alexander McQueen

Posted in anatomy, fashion, illustration on January 10, 2014 by bettiemuldoon

McQueen created his own ‘museum of woman-monsters’ in his second couture collection for Givenchy, Eclect Dissect, shown in July 1997. In the period leading up to to the show, his art director Simon Costin combined the late Victorian costumes McQueen was then looking at with with a series of animated skeletons and muscle men from the sixteenth-century anatomical plates of Andreas Vesalius in a series of collages.

Paolo Petrangeli “works and lives in Rome. In his painting there is the childhood’s innocence with all the bitterness of the adult age.”

It was this image from Ian Miller that got me into his work. The perfect toybox from hell…

LOOK at this creature! Are you looking? It’s insane!

I love how he combines cross hatching with sweeping strokes and intricate surreal detail.

Oh the organic, morphing, perfect madness!

Watched Poltergeist II the other day (great movie, but the first was awesome), and happened to pause for a break on this comical frame:

Oh, you think your pumpkin is scary? THIS is how they did it in early 20th Century Ireland.
raditional (and utterly terrifying) Halloween turnip jack-o-lantern carved in Ireland in the early 20th century. Note the horrifying teeth.

Ah, the 80’s…when movies had their own cheese-tastic rap theme songs. Take Monster Squad for example. What’s your favorite 80’s horror movie?
