“Some said the thunder called the lurking fearout of its habitation, while others said the thunder was its voice.” – H.P. Lovecraft
In this volatile world filled with ominous creatures and unknown dangers, the fine line between madness and reason evaporates with the arrival of the lurking fear.
Curious humans stumble upon Mother Nature’s guardians, as they watch over the gates of the abyss, only to become prey to Summer’s haunting season.

From dragons to vampires, mermaids to monsters, the widely acclaimed and prolific fantasy artist Anne Stokes has enchanted and terrified the world with her masterful creations for over 20 years. The London-born creator has produced art and illustrations for dozens of books, games, albums, including the uber-popular Dungeons and Dragons. These days, Anne is busy building her global empire by licensing her own creations in merchandising, jewelry, fashion, and much more. All hail the Mother of Dragons in the art world!
Today, we celebrate pastel Halloween with illustrator and artist Nikury, who hails from Finland. Nikury enjoys drawing nature, animals, and witchy stuff. Her kitten magick line features cutesy kitten familiar merch, perfect for witches and anyone looking for cute or unconventional Halloween products.
Grayson Fogg appears to be the creation of Richard Moore, or perhaps, it’s the other way around? Then again, they could be two entirely different people altogether. In any event, they make wonderful art!
I’m so excited to share the artwork of artist and jewelry designer, Natalie L. Ewert, who hails from Southern California. Natalie’s art features animals, fantasy, steampunk, and macabre themes. She also takes commissions.
According to German folklore, December 5th is the day that Krampus visits all the naughty children and whips them for misbehaving, gives them lumps of coal, or steals them away to eat them later. You gotta be really, really bad to have the latter happen. You might not agree with the methods of Santa’s evil twin, but you gotta admit, he gets results, even the adults act a little better during the holidays. Besides, Santa doesn’t really like being the bad guy, and all that coal weighs down the sleigh. Better to outsource a job like that.
These days, we hold annual balls and festivals in honor of Krampus, who’s now more a whimsical dark hero to us misfits.
