A British digital fine artist who draws rather a lot of tentacled women. His work is part of the Pop Surrealism movement. Stop by his blog every now and then to see some of the fascinating things he's currently working on.
My favorite work here is "Silent Partner" from the 2009 gallery. I suspect you'll greatly appreciate it as well.
Oh, you're going to have fun here! There are portraits based on classic horror; weird dark tiki prints; and fun Hollywood and classic horror-themed caricatures. The artist is obviously a huge fan of monster and horror films, and quite talented at expressing his enjoyment of them.
This Japanese artist draws and illustrates adorable gothy little girls - sometimes bleeding; sometimes getting into mischief; and always with a perky, feisty attitude.
Quite possibly my favorite dark artist of all time. (Check out Sophia's Lament). A New Zealander, she works in oil on canvas. I so wish this website were updated for 2011 though.
An incredibly talented artist from Spain. Her website is frustratingly slow to load, has music you can't turn off, and is a bit difficult to navigate, but the incredible artwork is worth the wait. You can see why she has such passionate fans.
Blood Milk Jewelry
An artist's blog that supports and reinforces her etsy shop but is also full of many other interesting things, not just ads for her lovely things. She shares music videos she's currently enjoying, discusses intriguing movies she's seen recently, and points out interesting works by other artists.
"Your source for all things wicked and awesome." A fun blog to browse. Tags and subjects include pop surrealism, interior design, fairytales, fashion, music and illustration. You'll find a lot of intriguing, beautiful dark things and artists to discover here.
A Zombie Gentleman's Diary
This is actually a Tumblr, not a blog, but with so many interesting dark things to look at, I wanted to share it with you.
"Fashion for the dead." A Canadian goth/cyberpunk/Lolita web store, quite famous and respected. The site is in both English and French, as you'd expect. They sell clothing for men and women, plus accessories (handbags, fangs, jewelry, etc).
Deadly Grounds Coffee
This coffee company uses a hearse for their company car - and wait til you see the cool packaging on their beans! You can order their coffee on their website, or buy it in a couple retail locations (such as in Hell, Michigan).
An Austin, Texas-based steampunk store. They sell eyewear (including pink goggles!), corsets, flasks, pocket watches, and jewelry. They also sell "steambath" products, but only at their physical store.
Sick on Sin
A Canadian store selling horror themed t-shirts for men, women, kids and pets. The infant tees are particularly adorable. There are also accessories on offer, such as buttons, magnets, keychains and pocket mirrors.
Sweet Heart Sinner Creations
An eBay store selling goth, psychobilly, retro humor, Edgar Allan Poe, and Halloween art. Don't miss the Alice in Wonderland category, too.
Somehow this fabulous vampire author's link never made it into the Darklinks database. She's the author of the popular techno-horror series "Eternal Vigilance." Currently, she'll be appearing at a coffee house in Austin, TX on January 8, 2012.
This blog features horror movie reviews, book reviews, interviews, and several podcasts.
"Bringing fear to your ears." This is a horror fiction podcast. While there hasn't been a new podcast uploaded since September, this site is still worth keeping your eyes (and ears) on.
From Dusk Till Con
This is an incredibly important resource for those interested in horror and zombie conventions. Besides news on upcoming conventions, guests of honor, and events, there's an active set of forums.
