The best kind of artist is the one who spontaneously does something really messed up and then everyone recognizes it as genius, the artist just kinda goes “Well, duh!” Greg Simkins' macabre paintings do just that.

Previously an illustrator, the now full-time painter takes images that exist only in your strangest, MSG-induced nightmares and bring them to life. Check out the gallery for a full range of Greg Simkins' macabre paintings.

Implications - These illustrations contain elements of fantasy and illusions that many adults are lacking in their day to day lives, but experienced and enjoyed in childhood. Companies would be wise to include fantastical features in their products to fulfill this consumer desire to escape from constraints of everyday life.
