20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Jodi Brown

What about the present day, you ask? Well the burgeoning genre of book sculpture is a great example of contemporary creep. Check out Jodi Brown's "illustration" of the classic Jules Verne tale. You can see a whole post we did of her work earlier this year here. And check out this blog for some even creepier examples.

Of course, these are only a scant few examples of great creepy art...what do you like that we didn't put here? Let us know in the comments!

Tim Wainwright

Tim Wainwright writes about monsters, sexual ethics, and public sector employee pension reform--and sometimes other things. You can follow him on twitter @Tim_Wainwright , because he has a strange desire to have people read the things he writes. He is growing to accept the fact that people will always call him "bud", and that he will never pull off the cowboy hat look.
