Weekly Weird Art: Casey Weldon

By Sam Reeve

Casey Weldon comes from southern California, but now works out of Brooklyn. He paints a lot of four-eyed cats. You can see more of his work on his website, and also on his tumblr.

Weekly Weird Art: Shain Erin

By Sam Reeve

Shain Erin hails from California and has this to say of his creepy art dolls:

These are not comforting toys; they can be challenging and defiant, disturbing and enchanting, irrational and frightening, beautiful and sad. They have stories they yearn to tell, and they hold secrets they will never give up. I like to think of dolls as spirit vessels and the making of a doll a kind of offering or invitation. It’s always a collaboration between me and whatever spirit comes forward.

Some of his sculptures were featured here on Bizarro Central over a year ago, but he’s awesome so you get to look at more! You can view more of Shain’s work, or learn more about him, on his blog, Flickr or deviantART page.
