Fantastic Horror Artist Alex Pardee

Alex Pardee is a freelance artist, apparel designer and  writer, born in Antioch, California on February 5, 1976. In addition to having his fine art exhibited in galleries all over the globe, Alex has acted as art director for numerous musical, animated, and film projects. He has created album covers for the bands The Used, In Flames, and hip hop artist Cage, and concept art for the TV/film projects Chadam & Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch. In 2007, he co-founded a successful art and apparel company called Zerofriends, a great site that provides affordable art prints, awesome T-shirts, and all manner of cool goodies designed by Mr. Pardee and friends.

Mr. Pardee’s work is visceral and stunning. He has developed a style that is truly his own.
As far as inspiration goes, he says :
As I was walking to my favorite deli, I saw a man get hit by a car. His hip slammed against the license plate on the car’s bumper and the force of the impact caused half of his axial skeleton to eject itself from his skin and muscles. The driver of the murder weapon didn’t even slow down to apologize. I shouted and sprinted over to the victim but I instantly realized that he wasn’t a man at all. What I watched explode onto the asphalt like a cartoon piñata was actually just a plastic garbage bag with a few shreds of bone white paper and a cranberry juice box. Things like this happen to me all of the time. My imagination takes over and makes me see things that don’t happen, and that don’t exist. I try to draw some of these experiences to share them with you, but I have a long way to go before I can really help you see what I see.”

JRD has created designs and posters for a wide variety of bands in 2 distinct styles. His art has an inspiring twisted beauty that draws from a variety of influences, including MTV (When they played videos), Horror Films, and Pop Culture. Major influences include Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Frank Kozik, H.R. Giger, Dave Mckean, David Carson, Phil Hale and Kent Williams.

Horror artist Dan Harding

Dan Harding was born and raised in central New Jersey where he grew up with a passion for anything to do with horror. Early on reading old horror zines , comics and books as well as an unhealthy amount of watching television. This sparked his interest in art, wanting to create his own monsters. He spent his teenage years doing art for friends and bands until he moved to PA for quite a few years where art had taken a back seat to life. In the late 90’s he began to feel the urge to get back into art so he started to pick up oil painting.

Never having any formal training it was a long process but he loved every minute of it. He eventually began to get jobs doing CCG art and magazine and book covers here in the US as well as Europe and Canada. He eventually moved back to NJ where he still resides continuing to paint and work in fine art restoration.

However, Dan has never been content with his work. He says,  “I feel like I was always so suppressed by creating what publishers and game companies wanted to see that I began to get stale with art. I never really painted something I thought was cool. The past couple of years I have begun to paint what is inside me and I am excited about where my work is heading!”

Let’s have a look :

Dan Harding is a truly unique artist who never fails to inspire shock and awe.

Horror artist Ghoulish Gary Pullin

According to the official website of “Ghoulish” Gary Pullin, his interest in the dark arts stared at a young age.
Ever since an old, unscrupulous priest gifted young Gary with his first set of markers at the tender age of six, he’s been developing his unique style – equal parts Robert Crumb, Charles Burns and Basil Gogos – that has bled into scads of mediums in and out of the genre.
Well, that is one priest I would like to thank. Gary has been creating some of the most impressive horror art in recent years.
He is a true favorite of mine. Just have a look :

His covers for the excellent horror magazine Rue Morgue is where I first spied Gary’s awesome artwork.

He has since designed some pretty incredible posters for some great films and festivals.

His work sets a high standard in horror pulp art.
Be sure and visit the website of Ghoulish Gary to view and purchase many more of his works, including T-shirts!
Do your homework and swing by his killer Facebook page and say hi!

The portrait of “Ghoulish Gary” above is by one of his very talented colleagues, Jason Edmiston. We will be looking at his work soon!
