Wicked Art Wednesdays – Toxic Toons

This October, we celebrate the multi-talented artist and animator Eric “Unkle” Pigors, who hails from Santa Clarita, CA.

Artist: Eric Pigors
Company/Studio: Toxic Toons
Where to Purchase Goods: Online shop, comic book and horror conventions, special events, specialty stores, i.e., Halloweentown Store, Mystic Museum, etc.

Social Media:  https://www.instagram.com/toxictoons

Why we love them:  This former Cartoon Network and Disney animator serves up the creepy dark art of every type of monster you can dream of and several only he could think up. His works are silly, gruesome, and the characters always look like they’re having a good time. If you could picture yourself inside one animated cartoon for a night, it’d be at a Pigor’s Halloween party.

Wicked Art Wednesdays – Dienzo

This October, we celebrate the creepy cute visions of Rick Blanco a.k.a. Dienzo, an artist and designer from So Cal, who’s done work for Disney, Mattel, Cartoon Network and more.

Artist: Rick “Dienzo” Blanco
Company/Studio: The Art of Dienzo
Where to Purchase Goods: Online shop, comic book conventions, special events, specialty stores, i.e., Halloweentown Store, Hyaena Gallery, etc.
Website:  http://www.dienzoart.com
Social Media:  https://www.instagram.com/dienzoart/

Why we love them:  Along with his stunning original art, Dienzo takes our favorite Disney and horror characters from movies and TV, and creates dark, intriguing, and sometimes sinister settings for them. This is pop culture turned upside down.

 

 

Happy Caturday!

Company/Studio: Ghoulish Bunny Studios
Where to Purchase Goods: Online shop, comic book and horror conventions, special events, etc.
Website: https://www.ghoulishbunnystudios.com/

Why we love them:  Creepy cute art blends the best of two worlds. Diana Levin’s colorful and whimsical style mixed with the dark Gothic tones is a feast for the eyes. In addition to drawing some delightfully creepy versions of pop culture and fabled characters, her own original character drawings are exquisite. Diana’s creative art inspires the imagination, which might explain how partner Shawn Givens comes up with all those spooky stories for their book series, The Ghoulish Grimoire.
