the-nerdy-chic:

Screw you Stephen Gammell, your illustrations scared the shit out of me as a kid. Especially the Haunted House.  

Brett Helquist has nothing on Stephen Gammell. Helquist’s art is too formulaic, too clean, which seems proper to any children’s literature, I suppose. Gammel’s art was nightmare fuel because of how abstract, gritty and direful he could portray urban legend art. It didn’t matter if Gammell was drawing for kids or adults in these books because his work here was grisly and terrifying.
