Self Portrait

image1-copy

Hey my name is Kaira/Scotty/Bailey (I go by any of these!) and I’m a very big fan of horror and gore! I’ve liked “creepy” things ever since I was little and have always been drawn to it  and as I got older and developed my art and story telling skills my love for horror followed. I do a lot of different forms of horror drawings, from candy gore to dark body horror, but I am always drawn to gore with very vibrant colors like you see in this piece. It’s both aestheticly pleasing and a sort of coping mechanism for me so I do it more of a get away than as a profession but that’s not going to stop me from improving my skills and putting out more for others to enjoy! I hope this is a good intro for my first post and I hope that you all like what I put out just as much as I admire all of your works!

My gore/nsfw artwork can be found at http://kai-gore.tumblr.com while my other art can be found at http://kai-rax.tumblr.com/. I also have an art Instagram which you can follow @kairaxart!

CHERUBIM

02-13-2017-cherubimsm

Hello!

I’m Jay H, a.k.a Bonesnail.  You can find my work at bonesnail.com, or at Bonesnail on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and Instagram.

I’ve always been a fan of mythology ever since I was a little kid. Even though I wasn’t raised in a particularly religious household, growing up in Kansas always had an overwhelming presence of Christianity in the culture.  As a young adult I’d read about Apocrypha (Biblical writings Protestantism considers non-canonical) and older, discarded elements such as the Angelic Hierarchy.  I like to joke that it’s a real shame they left those out of Sunday school teachings, because I would have enjoyed church so much more if they told me stories about 4-headed Cherubim and Ophanim, the eye-covered Wheels of God’s Throne.

I feel like there’s a lot of queer folks like myself in the Midwest who grew up around religion and adopted elements of that into their work, either as inspiration or as reclamation and defiance to Christian-based bigotry. It’s certainly been a way for me to not only enrich my art, but also shed myself of long-existing angst about my nonbinary trans identity.  It’s still in its infancy, but I feel like the Queer Occultism aesthetic is something that will continue to grow and inspire others.

Inevitable Choices

death-smallerjpgw

Hi there –

I’m Danielle Draik, D. Draik, or just Draik. You can find my work on Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook, or Etsy.

I’ve been working with an established visual language for most of my career – incorporating shapes and deformity to express moments, narratives, feelings, and identities. As far as figures go, I try to keep most of them androgynous/non-binary, mainly because I want there to be no barrier or inherent bias when the figure is presented to the viewer. My figures are their own and they can be connected to without assumption.

CHEWTOY

werewoof-bitesm

Hey I’m Murphy, a trans guy from Ontario, Canada. You can find me on tumblr, twitter and furaffinity (forewarning, my fa has nsfw content)!

While I’ve only more recently began adding gore to my art, it’s been something I’ve obsessed over since childhood. Gross, slimy, horror has always drawn me in. And of course for Halloween I just had to draw a werewolf using his tiny boyfriend as a chewtoy!

Happy Halloween!

Picking

genderterror-comicsm

Hey folks, I’m Marty – you can find me online as marblemartin on tumblr, twitter, FA… pretty much everywhere. I’m a nonbinary transmasculine artist living in Indianapolis, Indiana, which is luckily a small haven for the LGBTQ community in the midst of all these cornfields. I draw comics and recently opened up a little bookbindery/studio. I love monsters, critters, aliens, and robots. There’s something freeing about not adhering to human beauty when drawing these things!

I struggle with depression and anxiety alongside my dysphoria – both the social and bodily types – and this seems to be a common issue in the queer community. For me it manifests with me picking at my cuticles and skin, a kind of dermatillomania. It’s not quite what people expect when they think of self-harm, but it’s still destructive. I sometimes get weirdly freaked out about depicting myself in art – am I being too accurate and ‘misgendering’ myself visually, am I being too idealistic? So I decided to get out my hangups over my picking in a comic, just go full William Blake and bare my ugly side. Bring on the scabby chrysalis, I’m ready to turn into a beautiful queer butterfly.

An Abyssal Blind Date

genderterrorartfinalsmHi! I’m Morty, or smallmorty on tumblr . I’m your run-of-the-mill queer artist who loves to draw monsters, animals, and all kinds of gore.

Sexuality and self-expression fascinates me, especially when it’s mixed with elements of horror or fantasy. Drawing monsters and monstrous scenarios helps me cope with my frustrations and negative feelings about just about anything- even myself!

For this art, I wanted to explore the line between “scary monster” and “scary-looking, but not inherently dangerous”. There are a lot of animals (spiders, snakes, deep-sea fish, etc.) that are thought of as malicious and gross, despite the fact that they have complex, fascinating lives and behaviors.

fun guts

sdfsfooosm

hi, my name is rex, also known as prince lamb on tumblr and lambscape on furaffinity! im a trans guy from england who spends his free time drawing gross stuff and playing video games. i started drawing gore some time after i finished school, but i remember discovering gurochan during a free period and being absolutely fascinated. the stuff i saw there really grossed me out but i kept going back to look at more. it wasnt until a few years later when i came across an artist called manglo who was a big inspiration to me when i was younger, that i started drawing stuff like this for myself. weirdly, red is actually one of my least favourite colours, so i vary rarely use it, instead i adore using pinks and purples for all my blood and guts. my art usually features bright colours or pastels, or sometimes both at the same time! i love drawing gross and weird things but i also like to keep it cute in some manner, either with the colours or the character featured. the juxtaposition between cute and gross is very fun.

hello, i’m nick! i’m an ftm man born and raised in nyc, and my favorite art topics are ultraviolence, body horror, decomp, and general gross crap that isn’t appropriate to talk about with your dad at the dinner table. at the moment, you can catch me on twitter or on my art tumblr.

i feel like the exploration of graphic horror has helped me to understand this concept of life – both mine and my loved ones’ – being something fragile, where everything can change in an instant, and so it’s important for me to be honest with myself every day and try to live life fully. horror, therefore, was sort of the jumping off point for my transitioning journey, in that i wanted further honesty with myself and my identity. the acceptance of death, gore, violence etc. has helped me to accept myself as i am in life and reminded me to count my blessings.

Devilbabes n Jawboys

gt3markedsmall

Hi! I’m Francine Queen, or Witnesstheabsurd on tumblr and Personfaces on twitter! I was invited to produce a piece for Genderterror and couldn’t be more happy to contribute – the inherent beauty of “monstrosity” or the grotesque has been an intrinsic element of my work for the full span of my career and likely, always will be. A couple of years back I came up with an archetypal design that resonated w some of what I appreciated in both human and monster bodies – the “Jawboy” – impeccably sculpted muscles, long talons, and most importantly, a vats pair of eyeless, slavering jaws hiding kitchen knife fangs. I revisited a similar concept for the Genderterror piece, but this time opted to remove facial features entirely, instead focusing on a long coiling pair of horns. Crucially, the face is blank barring a series of bloody marks, potentially wounds, potentially self-inflicted- I wanted to create a character whose identity was self-created, whose identity might appear inexplicable or horrific to an onlooker – something that drew parallels with my own womanhood, being trans and queer. I hope you enjoy the work and i’m looking forwards to potentially appearing again here soon! I’m available to commission at witnesstheabsurd@hotmail.com, as well.

(Fyi this is how she kisses )
