gristol:

quick concepts for some ideas of spirits i had. from left to right:

  1. the keeper: guardian of cemeteries - makes sure graves remain clean and never without flowers.
  2. crywolf: once thought to be a trickster spirit that led travelers to their doom, this spirit’s actual intent is to help travelers discover unmarked graves of murder victims.
  3. the cacophony: will appear to some individuals - serves the same purpose as a banshee.
  4. the rat king: a spirit of vengeance, unleashed upon those who hurt others.
  5. the lure: an otherworldly being that feeds on lost souls - will lure them close and devour them whole.
  6. the guardian: a watchful sloth spirit that comforts the spirit of dead children, allowing them to paint his fur.

Kind of a blend of geometric Art Deco and the free-flowing curves of Art Nouveau. This was actually a movie set from Pleasure Crazed (1929).

Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix.
Something strange is happening at the Orsk furniture superstore in Cleveland, Ohio. Every morning, employees arrive to find broken Kjerring wardrobes, shattered Brooka glassware and vandalized Liripip sofa beds—clearly, someone or something is up to no good. To unravel the mystery, five young employees volunteer for a long dusk-till-dawn shift—and they encounter horrors that defy imagination.

Which Early Christian Heresy Are You?

(Source: violet-ianthe, via elucipher)

“The god of the train is not the commuter-bodies who pack themselves into cars each rush hour. The god of the train is the ghost of tired shoes, and lives inside light particles, the rivers we cross, and most of all the tracks we ride. Most do not know the god exists, but we leave him offerings anyway: bottles and newspapers, illegal radios, graffiti scratch and spray — all of this is his scripture.”

“So embarrassing when you stare into the abyss and the abyss stares back at you so you wave but the abyss was staring at the dude behind you.”
