“When HORROR knocks at your door, what do you do?
You answer it like you should.
If horror movies taught us anything it is: â€œnever split upâ€. But thatâ€™s whatâ€™s happening with the pandemic. We are separated into our homes.
Whoever you are, you cannot grow courage on your own. Just as imagination comes from something, courage to face any HORROR comes from other people.
Find that person, that passion, that vocation, that community thatâ€™ll be there before HORROR finds YOU.
Who better to give you courage than artists who take HORROR andturn it into ART? We accompany you in the dark to this issue #14presented without jump scares. “
– bkk UNZINE team: Jam, Maia, Boris, Venky.
If you are an artist and you want to get featured, the next theme for the November issue #14 will be Death, you can submit your artwork at this link:
Romantic moment at the cemetery
Horror of PCR Test
Brushpen and watercolorÂ
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world in a totally different way and the most affected part would be international travel. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, it was easy to travel abroad as long as you had an air ticket and visa. Now however, in the COVID-19 pandemic era, RT-PCR tests are required. Cotton swab will go deep into your nostril and you feel as though that cotton swab touches your brain. It only takes a few seconds but you feel like that it lasts for a while. All your face muscles and nerves pay attention to only your nostril and there will be dozens of wrinkles around your nose and eyes. Recently, I had an overseas mission for my work and I needed to have RT-PCR tests five times for this mission. Restarting an overseas mission gave me excitement but the pain of the RT-PCR test horrified me, even though it was just for a short moment.
The Lord of Death
Acrylic on canvas Size: 2ft x 3ft
Where there’s light there will be shadow, every beginning has an end, life is precious and beautiful but death cannot be avoided by any of the sentient beings, so here’s the guy who is supposed to decide where you are going after your life comes to an end, In Buddhism, Yama (Sanskrit: à¤¯à¤®) is a dharmapala, a wrathful god or the Enlightened Protector of Buddhism that is considered worldly, said to judge the dead and preside over the Narakas (“Hell” or “Purgatory”) and the cycle of rebirth.
This summer, 2021, various paintings of my imaginary character “Maro Dori” (noble bird from 1,000 years ago) were exhibited in Sapporo, Hokkaido. This painting of Maro Dori in snowy owl’s form is probably my best. It shines divinely and elegantly in the dark, wishing for the harmony of natural world……
Gehenna: Death Valley Variant Cover
Becka Kinzie wrote this great 6 volume horror story and I am honoured to be part of the collected version. This is the first of 2 covers that I painted for it. I tried to keep the style of this cover in line with Becka’s other covers. Her compositions are strong and not too busy so that it is easy to focus on the single element in the cover. This is actually very very close to a panel in Becka’s story, I just put my spin on it. Becka’s Kickstarter is up now and you can find out more on her website, thebecka.com
Horror in Multiple Dimensions
I did not mean to scare you
I am not much of a Horror person, so the closest I managed to get was mildly creepy, with this piece I did in 2020.
It showcases a creepy jet endearing creature, with haunting features. The purple mist following him where ever he goes, as he wanders the ruins within the forest.
Digital – Autodesk Sketchbook with Wacom Intuos
This artwork is pretty much the terrifying me submitting my artwork in the final moments of Deadline. On the other hand, this art was done 2 years ago at a time of when the world I knew before was on fire while the door to other side was closing. only to realize everything eventually burns away into ashes. What matters is to make the most of the fire when it is only light and warmth.
Digital: CLIP STUDIO PAINT
The scariest thing is that you want to do creative things and life gets in the way, I wanted to do more illustrations related to the HORROR theme but time flew by.Â I drew this digitally, with just a vague idea of the composition during one of our weekly meetups. I am glad of what I ended up with.
