Halloween Countdown: Chad Wehrle

Posted in art, illustration, monsters, undead with tags , , , on October 11, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

Chad Wehrle sites the “masters of spook” Stephen Gammell, Edward Gorey and Donn Kenn among his influences.

I see Gammell’s spirit most of all in this work (which is great because he’s one of my all time favorite illustrators).

I just love the effect of broad, skillful smudging/erasing combined with very fine line work.

Halloween Countdown: Undead Teds

Posted in horror, monsters, plush, toys, undead with tags , , , , , , , on October 9, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

It’s pretty easy to find a variety of plush zombie creatures these days, but Undead Teds are a cut above (pun intended).

Watch one in action first:

Each UndeadTed is painstakingly made with individually custom-sculpted parts and hand-painted for a unique, grisly finish.

My favorite part of the descriptive text on the site is the following disclaimer:
