Today I’m highlighting a book called “Into the Dark” edited by Hazel Butler and published by Aadenian Ink. Containing over two hundred images, and contributions from thirty-two artists from around the world, Out of the Dark is a veritable cornucopia of Gothic delight. Fifteen chapters, each packed with vibrant images, and pithy descriptions, showcase some of Gothic Art’s favourite themes, from Death to Lovers, Hauntings to Winter, Lolitas to Lost Boys, and Beauty to Winter.
Today I’m going to highlight a few of the artists just to whet your appetite. These pieces are pretty dang amazing so hold onto your socks!
First up: Just A Kiss, by Jeannie Ann Numos
Jeannie Ann Numos is a freelance Graphic Artist from the Philippines. She has been involved in digital arts mainly, photo manipulation, for over three years, and has a profound love of art, which has always been a significant aspect of her life.
Next up: Anesthesia, by Liran Szeiman
Liran Szeiman is based in Barcelona, currently working in the digital gaming industry. Although her education was in Graphic Design, a few years ago she discovered digital painting and joined Hysterical Minds, which was a turning point to fully dedicate to illustration, oriented towards the Dark Art and Surrealism Pop. Her work moves through dark worlds in search of beauty and vice versa, recreating worlds of dreams, feelings and memories of childhood, in a terrifyingly sweet way.
Finally: Lost In Thought, by Debra Mason
Debra Mason is a digital artist working out of Toronto, Canada. She’s been doing art for as long as she could hold a crayon, but it was when she discovered Photoshop several years ago that her creativity really took off.
