Posted in animation, candy coated nightmares, macabre, video with tags , , , on March 30, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve posted about Megan Petasky before. This video of hers is guaranteed to be one of the creepiest cartoons you see today (assuming you watch a lot. You watch a lot, right?).

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

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

Campbell’s Soup Kids

Posted in advertising, candy coated nightmares, dolls, kitsch with tags , , , on June 21, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

Let’s take a moment to focus on the kitschy, cutesy iconic marketing creations of Campbell’s.

Brace yourself…here they come…

The Campbell Kids have been selling Campbell’s Soup since 1904 when Grace Wiederseim Drayton, an illustrator and writer, added some sketches of children to her husband’s advertising layout for a Campbell’s condensed soup. The Campbell advertising agents loved the child appeal and choose Mrs. Wiederseim’s sketches as trademarks. -Source

I’m not sure what prompted Ms. Drayton to draw them as if they were hopped up on too much Adderall, but they certainly make an impression.

Yes, they are staring right into the recesses of your soul, burning a hole in your brain…

The dolls are equally terrifying, yet I’d kind of like to have one (or two). I will leave them staring at unsuspecting guests when I step out of the room.

This rather horrifying chunk of stop motion surrealism was hidden in the recesses of my mind until my wonderful friend Casey reminded me of it (thanks, Casey!)…
