35 Creepy Illustrations Ripped Straight From Your Nightmares

These illustrations tell a story. 

Do you know what every artist wants? For their art to tell a story without uttering a single word. While writers can explain in thousands of words what they want their readers to feel, artists employ another tactic. To somewhat infuse a particular emotion that will get invoked when you take a look at that painting. And I can safely say the artist behind these illustrations is a master at that. 

They are not horrific for gore sake. He clearly wants the viewers to feel like they’re in the scene with the main character. And his unique art style certainly helps in that regard mixing reality and fantasy effortlessly. So take a look at these haunting illustrations for yourself by scrolling below. A fair warning beforehand as some of these may actually give you nightmares.
