6 Days to Halloween – Haunting Art

Hello everyone! The creepy keeps getting creepier around here!

I took a peek into the art world and found some very spooky and haunting images to share. I felt these especially brought out the spirit of Halloween, although only one artist’s collection (the first one) was meant to have a Halloween theme. The others are just naturally creepy.

Sweet dreams! ‘Till next time.

1. Joey L. (1989 – )
