Otto Rap hides these grotesque imagery in a delicate, graphite-rendered haze. Otto’s illustrations exude a natural flow of dark noise that vibrates with raw energy. But the way he executes it all, in a kaleidoscope explosion of beautiful pattern making, is what really does it for me.
Zansky’s illustrations, both editorial and personal, serves as a swirling confetti pool of beautiful patterns, color, and beautiful line work that all which combines into a collection of some really inspiring work.
Last week we spread word about Aiden, an amazing 5-year old horror artist who is currently fighting Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, and tried to help raise funds for him and his family. The $2 we donated from every subscription made great progress thanks to our loyal Cult of Decay members, but there is still some progress left to be made. We want to help soften Aiden and his family’s journey through leukemia as much as possible, but we cannot do that without your help. So subscribe today, and help spread the word of our efforts to as many people you know. Lets demonstrate what the support and backing from Cult of Decay can really do!

Akira Beard, a San Francisco based artist and teacher at the Academy of Art University, is well known for his engaging watercolor portraitures of pop culture icons.
