New Dark and Gothic Links for a Gloomy Tuesday



A Russian fantasy artist. Many of the digital paintings here concern fairy tale type subjects. Most of the darker stuff is available in the Photomanipulation gallery.

My favorite piece here is Lollipop Fairy.

Mia Araujo

A fine art illustrator who occasionally creates dark gothic fantasy paintings. She lives in Los Angeles. I wish I'd seen her work when it was shown here at the Roq la Rue gallery in Seattle.

You can buy some of her artwork in her Etsy shop (Check out her incredible Bride of Frankenstein sketch).

My favorite piece here is "Bluebeard."

Stanislav Isratov

This Kiev-based fashion photographer shares a generous amount of his photos here. Check out his favorites list to see stunning work by his friend Irina Isratova (I assume she's his wife?) My favorite from her is "Black Queen".

From Stanislav my favorite is "Nigredo." I think you'll really enjoy looking at the high quality photographs here.

All Your Sisters

This San Francisco post-punk band is comprised of Jordan Morrison and Mario Ruiz. I was surprised how much I enjoyed the few songs of theirs I listened to on Soundcloud. They sounded industrial and upbeat. Their website is a bit confusing to navigate - scroll down, if you choose to visit it. Check out their song Come Feel on Youtube. I really like the vocals!

The Black Bats

This band (with members from San Francisco and Los Angeles) is interested in making vampiric music. They alternately describe their sound as "dark trip hop," ethereal, electronic, and darkwave. This Halloween, they have the distinct honor of playing at the Vampire Lestat Coronation Ball in New Orleans.
