Parker Steven Jackson, Nightmare Fuel Artist

Parker Steven Jackson is one hell of a horror artist.

I love this drawing because the creature in it is so archetypal–the unconscious thing that stalks our nightmares. A mish-mash of demon, ghoul, and general nightmare shtuff that the collective unconscious regurgitates while we sleep.

Parker Steven Jackson also gives the creature character. Doesn’t he? Looks as if a friend’s snapped an unexpected photo of it, rendering him unphotogenically. He looks chummy.

Notice the frilly hair, the triple ear piercing in the right ear, the handlebar mustache. Looks like when it isn’t causing night terrors it plays tom-toms in an indie band.

Seriously cool stuff.

Someone use this and write a short story, please!

Here’s one helluva what-if scenario writing prompt.

What if…

Millennials literally did die a little inside once their mortgage-sized student loan debts went into repayment? And those morsels of dead souls were then transmogrified into a symbolically fitting murder of crows? All of whom were hell-bent on revenge against the Big Banks?

That’s what I saw when I looked at this picture.

If that gets your juices flowing, see where it takes you! Hell, you could even make Bernie Sanders a wizard responsible for bringing the murder to life!
