These otherworldly illustrations by Russian artist Iv Solyaev hearken to sources like Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark and Chris Cunningham's "Rubber Johnny." Rendered in a grainy, greyscale, these figures seem to be only half-emerging, their gnarled, alien body parts obscured as if in a mist. These creatures seem to be bizarre hybrids of dolls, monsters, mushrooms, demons and animals, all morphed together seamlessly into some new frightening form. Beautiful, strange and stunning.
