A little while back, Flickr user Rafa Toro uploaded this great set of images from a series of collectible horror stickers produced in the 80s called Monstruos Diabolicos. I find myself returning to it again and again to bask in its sticky, vintage awesomeness. Find some of my favorites after the jump, and check out Toro’s own rendtions in his “Redux” set of digital illustrations.
Bill McRight, of Philly powerhouse Space 1026, employs gnarly printmaking skills in the creation of images not confined to a place in time. In McRight’s work, Garish figures sans-pupils populate a stark environment of violence, movement, and open mouths containing sharp teeth. But it all looks so good that the reaction of the viewer is inclined toward pleasure rather than pain.
The boombastic Superoboturbo illustrations remind me of how excited I used to be when I saw monkeys on television. I used to be obsessed with those little fuzzy guys, and I’m beginning to swoon for this man’s work the same way. His controlled pallette and friendly line-weight make for a rambunctious duo that make it hard to pull my eyes away.
Also, he recently broke his leg so maybe send him a nice note or a little work to help cheer him up/pay the medical bills at: firstname.lastname@example.org
