The Art of Darkness

A Nostalgic Halloween

August 29th, 2008 by Cobwebs

The Mourning CrowHere’s a wonderful source of inspiration: Artist Kris Dickinson’s A Nostalgic Halloween is a blog devoted to “original art, favorite sites and information about Halloween,” focusing mainly on images and tropes from around the turn of the (last) century.

The artwork is lovely, combining vintage Halloween images and haunting photographs with ribbons, charms, and other accents. There are some great ideas for collages and small projects like gift tags too.

I’ve always loved the folk-art feel of antique Halloween cards and decorations. Some of these pieces would be wonderful accents in a “mainstream goth” interior decorating scheme (that is, goth, but not so it scares landlords, parents, or in-laws).

There are links to lots of other Halloween art resources, too. Go check it out!
