Artist Trevor Henderson first caught our attention last year when he created a gorgeous poster for the Evil Dead remake. While following him on Facebook and instagram, I noticed his unique new project picking up steam and becoming a reality just in time for our cooler Autumn weather.
He has created a series of “Horror Hangers”, which are a throwback to the Halloween decorations of the 1980s reinvented to reflect the tastes of the discriminating modern horror fanatic.

Series 2, available October 1st!

Series 2, available October 1st!

The first series is selling out quickly at his etsy store and the artist has been hard at work creating a second series of the hangers (above), which will be available at the beginning of October.
I asked artist Trevor Henderson what inspired this idea, and he told me :

I was  inspired by the nostalgia for Halloween when I was a little kid. My parents would always put up the same decorations, and they included a big goofy wall hanger of Frankenstein’s monster. I also have a lot of nostalgic memories of watching countless horror films with my dad. It occurred to me that combining icons from well-known (and not so well known…) horror icons with affordable decorations for the upcoming Halloween season could be really cool! The hangers are made from start to finish in about six to eight hours each using acrylic ink on illustration board, and then they are printed on 100 pound card stock to be cut and assembled. I try and include a cool accessory or gimmicky feature with each one, as if it were a cheesy 80’s action figure. I have a huge backlog of characters I want to paint, with the second wave hitting (hopefully) on October 1st!

Check out the available hangers in the gallery below, and click the photos to take you directly to Trevor Henderson’s etsy store to get these suckers up on your wall in time for Halloween.
And be sure and stay up to date with the release of series 2 and future artwork from the artist by following him on Facebook, Twitter, and instagram.
