If you thought the little children in Hollywood horror movies were scary, wait until you feast your eyes on these Adrienne Kammerer illustrations. Drawn using graphite, these mysterious and unnerving works of art explore, as Kammerer describes herself on her blog, “the history of magic set in a fictitious past.” As such, many of her renderings feature occult or fantastical motifs that most people try to avoid. And when you couple that with the subtle yet creepy expressions found on her subjects’ faces, you have images that are sure to invoke nightmares among many of its viewers.
Adrienne Kammerer is currently based in Toronto, Ontario. Most of her illustrations are actually well-researched and contain documented information related to magic and mythology. The dark humor found within the visuals however, that’s just Kammerer having fun.
