Stephen Gammell

Here is a selection of illustrations depicting the odd tales from the book "Scary Stories". I've scanned and uploaded these images myself. I've been a great fan of these paintings since childhood. The expressive watercolor paintings, ink blots pooled into monster faces and mutated limbs, it all provokes a unique nightmare world unlike anything else.

You can purchase the books illustrated by Gammell here.

thanks so much for posting these pictures. i remember reading the scary stories when i was in kindergarten or first grade and just SHAKING, physically shivering because of the pictures. i'm now obsessed with the horror genre, but i've never seen an artist that scared me more.
