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.

Somehow these are both creepy and adorable.

Holy sheit... Thanks for introducing me to Edward Gorey! I'm surprised I hadn't learned about him sooner. I think I have a good supply of inspiration for the next month or so. By the way... "I will not set fire to my fellow students..." That made me laugh. You have earned a new watcher.

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...?
