Brecht Vandenbroucke

Drawings by Brecht Vandenbroucke. I find there’s something really frightening about most of these.

  • there is a very particular kind of sinister atmosphere to all of these. they are great though! i like them.

    the last one definitely freaks me out. i can see myself having recurrent nightmares about one of those crazy armed inflatables unceasingly flailing around all alone in a crumbling, empty house… its constant motion and unchanging smile like some kind of grotesque caricature counterpoint to the solitude and decay surrounding it…

    holy fuck. saw his flikr. such an awesome sick guy

  • Hey,

    It looks like your blog is growing. Although I have been in NYC for 15 years, I still love P-Town and its peeps. Keep up the good work.

    Oh wow, I loved the last one, then I saw the skull. Scary shit. So amazing.

  • Gav

    brilliant work. love it all

  • so c.

    if i find these hilarious, does that make me a strange person?

    • yes. in fact it makes me very worried about you. you should go see a psychiatrist! :P

  • These are….different. I feel pretty bad for the guy in the first one who’s getting his bum pinched by a giant! Also WACKY INFLATABLE FLAILING ARM TUBE MEN!!!! That one is AWESOME! I love the way that the scull is “secretly” in the background. Finally the robot one makes me a little sad.

  • these are really fabulous. the last two are my favorite – i think the last one is my favorite but the textures in the 2nd to last are really great. love this type of surrealistic “id” art.

  • juniper

    I like the skull in the wall in the last one
    P-TOWN REPPIN’
    haha

GIRLSCHOOL x Society6

Deap Vally x Natalie Foss

 

Musician Anna Bulbrook (The Bulls, Airborne Toxic Event, and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros) recently launched GIRLSCHOOL, a Los Angeles-based music festival and collective that celebrates female voices. A portion of proceeds from each event go to a girl-positive organization, and this year’s festival (Jan 27-29) will support Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls LA, a 501c3 social justice organization using loud music to nurture self-esteem and self-expression in young girls.

Society6 has joined forces with GIRLSCHOOL to pair up musicians and artists to create visuals inspired by the music, to be displayed at the event. See a few more of the collaborations below!
