DAY TWELVE of The Dirty Dozen, 12 Days of X-mas: Horror Calendar by John J Dick

Wow. We have made it to Day 12 of our holiday celebration. There was so much horror, so much blood and guts, you might wonder what any of this has to do with Christmas. Well, to be honest, very little… but we had fun, didn’t we?

If you would like to continue this creepy fun throughout the days of 2016, please consider picking up a calendar by John J. Dick. I love the idea of a horror calendar, and this one is just plain brutal. Horrible Things 2016 is truly sick, and I mean that as praise.

All purchases can be made through John’s Paypal account. He sure would appreciate it (bless those starving artists). And these models are DYING to be hung on your wall. ūüôā

HORROR ART – dark painters

davinci

I love this quote by Leonardo da Vinci. Often¬†embracing what society considers “dark” makes for awesome artwork… and¬†today I’d like to¬†shine a¬†spotlight on my favorite horror artists! This blog will focus on dark artists who take brush to canvas in the name of all things creepy. Below you will find skilled painters¬†whose works have awed¬†and amazed the horror realm, and of course, I’ve provided links to their websites.

Please respect these artists and their work by not¬†stealing it! You’ll just get busted and look like a total loser anyway. Ha! Now on to the fun…

Stephen Cooney has been painting for as long as he can remember. He has always loved horror and fantasy art. Human skin served as his canvas for many years as a tattoo artist, before he began painting commissioned pieces for book and magazine covers. You may recognize his work at many popular horror publishers. Although most of his work has to do with horror and fantasy, he is always willing to try new projects on different subjects. For more information, visit: http://www.stephencooneyart.co.uk

Suzzan Blac

Suzzan Blac has earned¬†SO MUCH¬†of my respect. She’s gifted at portraying the horrific¬†side of human nature in oil paint, and she’s open about the history of sexual abuse that led her down this dark path of self-expression, which takes real guts (much like the guts she paints so well). Her auto-biography, The Rebirth Of Suzzan Blac, was an incredible read and deepened my admiration for the artist. To learn more, visit:¬†http://www.suzzanb.com

Well, that’s it. I hope you enjoyed the artwork. There are tons¬†more horror artists¬†out there waiting to be discovered. Feel free to comment with reader¬†suggestions!
