Yeah, I’ve written some ideas for horror comics but never drawn them, I feel like maybe my work is too based in comfort for that.
my favorite creators to do horror comics are Junji Ito and Emily Carroll.
here’s Ito drawing of Lovecraft: I grew up reading Lovecraft’s stuff. I guess he’s on the sci fi end of horror. with lots of old aliens and ancient creatures of the deep. I feel like he was the 1st artist whose work made me deal with the idea that I could sometimes like work when I found the person to have some lame ideas. Like how Lovecraft’s work seems powered by a fear of the other that also had him spouting some shitty racist ideas.
Junji Ito’s Lovecraft is my preferred Lovecraft these days now that I’m
old savvy enough that I can’t mentally gloss over the xenophobia in his actual writing anymore — though I do so like the army of fuzzy kitties that save the day in The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath… Maybe I could re-read that. Or just reread this instead: http://www.mangareader.net/ito-junjis-cat-diary/1
I thought about making a gif of a dog skating the other day. It looked like he was trying to ollie. I prefer cats skating though.
Yes, more skating cats.
Because I’m not going to have the time to start skating until I retire but I totally still intend to do it.
