Whilst on the subject of scaring children (???) here is another collection of phantasmagoric artwork also found via BoingBoing. These pictures were all painted by R. S. Connett and, if you check them out I think you’ll agree that they are pretty striking and also somewhat unsettling. Some of the images on Connett’s web site are even more disturbing so bear that in mind if you click through to it.
I think Connett’s pictures are really rather cool and, as pointed out on BoingBoing, are kind of reminiscent of H. R. Giger given their fantastic nature. I’d be more than happy to have something by Connett hanging on a wall, or set as my desktop wallpaper and his work would be ideal for an album cover or two. Very impressive stuff.
