We’ve reached the end of another week – thank god! – which means it’s time to once again take a look at the coolest, weirdest and/or most awesome images that I’ve stumbled across on social media this past week.
So let’s get right to it, shall we?!
My buddy Aaron Crawford unleashed his new art series ‘Neon Maniacs’ over on the Cavity Colors website this week, chock full of colorful goodness in tribute to films like Halloween 3 (above), Lucio Fulci’s Zombie and Return of the Living Dead. You always know a piece of Crawford’s art when you see it, which is a big reason he’s one of my favorites in the horror game. Be sure to head over to Cavity Colors to see more of his highly unique and always visually arousing artwork!
Another one of my favorite artists is Jason Edmiston, whose art I’ve featured a few times here on the weekly image roundup. These three oddball pieces are his contributions to Cotton Candy Machine’s upcoming group art show Tiny Trifecta, playing up the recognizable features of three of our favorite horror icons. Kinda cute… kinda creepy… definitely awesome!
Continuing this week’s ‘artists I’m a fan of’ trend is this Creepshow poster from “Ghoulish” Gary Pullin, based on the ‘Father’s Day’ segment. Both this version and a purple variant go up for grabs today over in Pullin’s online shop, so be sure to navigate over to there and snatch one up, before they sell out. Wheres my cake, Bedelia?!?!
Makeup FX legend Rick Baker tweeted out this image earlier today, a behind the scenes shot from Tobe Hooper’s 1981 film The Funhouse. That’s of course Baker sculpting the Gunther mask, and if you’re a fan of his work I highly encourage you to follow him on Twitter, as he’s always posting fun behind the scenes pictures like this one.
What would the iconic Ghostbusters logo look like from behind? Well, I can’t say I ever pondered that question, but thanks to this piece of fun art, I’m pretty happy to say that I now know the answer. No idea who drew this up, but I got a kick out of it. I aint afraid of no ghost butt!
Speaking of Ghostbusters, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, I spotted this fun fan art over on Strange Kids Club, whipped up by Josh Lane. Lane turned a few different pop culture icons into faux Operation game boards, so head over to Strange Kids Club to see them all. There’s not a price tag too high too keep me from buying something like this, if it was ever actually made!
Social media is a little bit different in the Leatherface house, as this clever cartoon from Brent Smith shows. Not the first time I’ve seen someone tell a similar joke, but definitely the best execution of that joke. More horror cartoons please, Brent!
We wrap things up for the week with this brilliant bit of Godzilla cosplay, created and worn by fan Sean Sumagaysay. How incredible is that?! Head over to Fashionably Geek to see more pictures of the costume, including a pretty epic one of Godzilla wielding a lightsaber!
