Vintage Freakshow by jollyjack Vintage Freakshow by jollyjack
"Hey, they look like Slenderman!"
"Are these inspired by the Endermen?"

That....OK, that irks me a bit. Not for any rational reason. Most weren't to know: I've been drawing my "Freakshow" pictures since 2001/2. Well before Slenderman showed up, and before me, other (better) artists were doing similar stuff. Look at the work of Edward Gorey and Charles Addams, whose art heavily inspired my "darker" pictures.

This reminds me of a Tim Berten movie.

I didn't get what was creepy about plugging in the aquarium filter and the one about getting a gumball.

The first one was a vacuum-cleaner and the gumball one was just about unfairness?

Yep. The Denizens were around long before SA was even planned.

Were they around long before you were born? Are they hiding in the shadows, waiting to conquer us all...?

I don't see any reason to argue over the who first had the idea to draw a character like that, because they're so simplistic in style that there's hardly any point. I've also seen plenty of macabre drawings... But, these were pretty entertaining so thank you. :P

Edward Gorey scared the living piss out of me as a child.  So much creepy nightmare fuel.  Those were the worst.  Not the ones where something bad happened, the CREEPY ones where it was all so very normal, and yet completely terrifying at the same time.
