Here’s to another horrifying submission. I wasn’t planning to work on scary projects a month before Halloween. I’m not a fan of scary movies and I doubt I could sit through another chilling trailer. But when a chance and challenge like this arises, how can I possibly say no?
This submission was for the horror T.V series Lore. The new series has six episodes all based on real-life horrifying stories. As a part of the competition you were encouraged to re-create the title in unique, hair-raising ways, inspired from either one of the frightening episodes.
The six tales are:
- Burke and Hare: In the Name of Science
- Elizabeth Bathory: Mirror, Mirror
- Hinterkaifeck: Ghosts in the Attic
- Prague Clock: The Curse of the Orloj
- Mary Webster: The Witch of Hadley
- Jack Parsons: The Devil and the Divine
After great contemplation and rewinds of the trailer, I chose the tale of Burke and Hare to create my piece. Reason for this is because no matter how scary it was to watch, it was the least gruesome one.
My piece is based on a cold, dark scene in the graveyard. To create this I stuck to my usual circular, collaged background and silhouette foreground. Not wanting any negative space, I made sure the patterns reached all four corners leaving no gaps.
