Though Halloween feels like but a distant memory with the holidays approaching, we don’t necessarily need a reason to champion the spooky, the strange, and the delightfully creepy. You can watch The Craft all year long, cosy up with The Halloween Tree whenever you damn please, and collect skeleton stickers like they’re going out of style (like that would ever happen). And with American Horror Story: Freak Show still in full swing, what better time to showcase an artist we feel a very special kinship with, whose prints and artwork speak to our constant desire to do the Monster Mash?
According to his website, Patricio Oliver (known as PO! in his online work), is “an Argentinean graphic designer, illustrator, teacher at Buenos Aires University and character design teacher at Espacio Virgen. Possessed by the spirit of an 8 year-old Victorian child, PO! is the medium between this spectral lad and our world. Trapped in a universe of vampires, freaks, strange children, dark forests and monsters, all your childhood fears might manifest in the shape of his creations.” This appreciation for the macabre shows in PO!’s portfolio, tumblr, and the prints available in his online store at Society6.
What did I tell you? I’m putting those incredible Myrtle Snow prints on my holiday wishlist right meow. And hey, throw a Vincent Prince and Brienne of Tarth in there, while you’re at it. Not only would these prints make excellent gifts, the designs are also available on other stuff like t-shirts and coffee mugs. PO! also has a plethora of original work and character designs, all of which you should check out. Because hey, who doesn’t like to find a fellow weirdo in the world?
