From drawings that look like the canvas is rotting off its hinges to skull-inspired renderings that look like the living dead, these morbid illustrations show how society exudes a hungry fascination for the obscene.

These illustrations are not for the faint of heart, and if onlookers detest horror movies, these examples may not be for you. But, if you are like many people with a penchant for the morbid, these drawings will allure you into their dark depths.

The artists featured here gather inspiration from the most obscene parts of the imagination. It is quite disturbing to see animals hung in ways that only butchers are aware of. The brain is another fascinating feature of surreal artwork, and can be rendered in a variety of absurd and interesting ways.
