Enter the glorious world of Ghoulish Gary Pullin

I've just discovered the Monster-ous artwork of Toronto-based illustrator Ghoulish Gary Pullin, who's unique style has graced many a horror DVD and magazine for the past few years. Truly an artist to follow and collect, he's up there with Basil Gogos and Robert Crumb thanks to his fantastic talent at putting pen, ink and paint to paper. He's also a huge VP fan, so I want him as my new best friend.

Check out his award-winning illustrations and designs on his website. You can even purchase artwork like the two Vincent illustrations shown here.
