To help you get into the mood for the Halloween season, I present a selection of the fabulous works of photographer Benjamin Von Wong.
Angel or demon? Doesn’t matter, she demands your respect. Cultists, monsters, and a small squad of monster hunters whose lifespans can probably be measured with an egg-timer. Unearthly and utterly alien.
A fine selection of Won’s art can be found in the gallery below, and the rest is available At The Link!
I’ve discovered a lot of artists during the last year, and Eve Ventrue is one of my favorites. Brimming with life and vitality, the characters of Ventrue’s art are sometimes fierce, sometimes captivating, sometimes possessed of a startling vulnerability. Her range is broad, and her work is amazing.
No Fear Phoibe II Witch Born
Of course, these pictures only scratch the surface of her work. You can catch some of the rest in the gallery below or At The Link!
Graphic design and advertising is a complex and chancy endeavor. Poorly done, it creates schlock that can actively repel customers, but done well, it can create evocative designs that resonate with the audience and become pieces of popular culture in their own right.
Redditor “Join_You_In_The_Sun” took 80 high resolution scans of different movie posters and removed all text — logos and all. Even shorn of their logos, each poster is both evocative and iconic.
Take a look:
Pulp Fiction Raiders of the Lost Ark Big Trouble in Little China
The gallery below, though extensive, includes less than half of his posters. You can find the rest At The Link!
Big Trouble in Little China Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan A Nightmare on Elm Street Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Return of the Living Dead
Anita Anti (featured before) is a New-York based Ukrainian photog, with a penchant for fabulous folklore pics featuring absolutely gorgeous women.

You can find more of Anita’s galleries on her site, At The Link!
Devid Benzal’s art is a door to beautiful and deadly women, stern and brave Samurai swordsmen, and multifold fantastic and perilous worlds of adventure.
Kiss me or kill me, I almost don’t care which… just get it over with quickly. A man on a mission. As cold, relentless, and utterly unstoppable as an avalanche. I don’t care how tempted you are: STAY AWAY! That’s a woman who would happily spill your blood without a second’s thought.
You can find a bunch of other Benzal pieces At The Link!
It’s a good question: what IF villains weren’t brain-damaged fools who do stupid stuff that gets themselves killed, exiled, or utterly defeated? College Humor’s Paul Westover and Andrew Bridgman have some answers!
It’s a plan. SO CRAZY IT JUST MIGHT WORK! Loophole! If you MUST have a Dalmatian fur coat. Wouldn’t a nice mink be better, though? Captain Obvious strikes again! Simple. Direct. Brutal. I LIKE IT!
Man, if there’s anymore villains like this, heroes are OVER.

Featured once before, Stanley Lau (aka Artgerm) continues to really impress. Last time I could only showcase a few of his pieces, but today I’ll be showing off quite a few more.
They are, all in all, striking, moving, and amazingly beautiful.
Supergirl, fun and flirty, ready for a night on the town. Phoenix. Beautiful, alluring, utterly unpredictable and potentially quite deadly. Captain America, courageous and resolute.
And, as I said, there are many many more, both in the gallery below and on DeviantArt At The Link!
