99 Creepy Art Items

From Edgar Allan Poe Pillows to Piggy Vampire Portraits

— January 19, 2011 — Art & Design
Since it is Edgar Allan Poe's birthday today, I thought it'd be nice to remember the king of darkness by creating a top list of creepy art items. If you are the jittery type, I suggest looking elsewhere for frilly ponies and colorful rainbows.

This collection has everything from frightening clay creations to horrifying muppet illustrations, all perfect in honoring the great Edgar Allan Poe. Enjoy!

Implications - North American society places a lot of importance on individuality. As such, many consumers are turning to the macabre in order to differentiate themselves from the commonplace. Corporations looking to satiate consumers' need to be individuals can similarly use creepy imagery to evoke a sense of uniqueness.
