Horror Ink Sketches

As part of our horror countdown we’re posting one new ink sketch every day. All through October, Miguel was caught up in a creative frenzy and drew a ton of Horror movie inspired illustrations! It was pretty crazy. Every time I arrived home, there were more black and white sketches all over the place. So, we’re posting all 25 horror sketches!

Trolls

“The troll is a mythical creature of Scandinavian origin that has become a popular staple in the realms of legend, folklore, and fantasy. One of the most anthropomorphic fantasy creatures, trolls have been depicted in vastly different ways. From their Scandinavian fairy tale roots, in such tales as Three Billy Goats Gruff, trolls have achieved international recognition, and in modern fantasy literature and role-playing games, trolls are featured to the extent of being stock characters. Generally considered somewhat dangerous, whether through their larger than human size and strength or through more magical means, trolls are recognizably similar to human beings. A school of thought has it that the mythical trolls originated in knowledge, if not memories, of Neanderthal humans. Whatever their origin, trolls represent that which is somewhat peculiar and different, yet hauntingly similar to ourselves. Efforts to depict trolls in literature, art, music, and other cultural forms, may reflect our desire to embrace, yet at the same time fearing, those who are different.” [click here to read more]

Morticians

“Funeral Home Workers Describe The Creepiest Thing That They’ve Witnessed On The Job. For most people, just the idea of being around a dead body gives them the creeps, but for funeral home workers, death is the only way to make a living. Embalmers, morticians, and funeral directors spend most of their time with the no-longer-living, collecting some pretty grueling stories along the way. We’ve gathered some of the creepiest experiences funeral home workers have had from Reddit and are still recovering from the heebie-jeebies.” [click here to read more]
