When the Brothers Grimm and other fairytale authors told their narratives centuries ago, I'm sure the kind of shock and imagery they were trying to instill into children's heads looked something like these Blaz Porenta illustrations. After all, what better way to get children to obey cautionary advice than through sheer fear?

Blaz Porenta exclusively renders each popular prepubescent story in this horrifying manner with each illustration. The Slovenian artist is a master of fantasy painting, and has a penchant for visuals that inspire gasps of terror and looks of dread. It doesn't really matter who or what the subject is, Porenta's signature style always shines through.

It's no wonder then that Blaz Porenta's work lends itself so well to video games and comic books. The talented visionary has even illustrated a series based on Marvel Comics' most prized superheroes.
