Some of the greatest artists from the world of vinyl are gathering together for the first annual Bewitching show at the Stranger Factory and the work that they are putting out is amazing. from the funny to the freaky and everywhere in between, the Bewitching show is one of the best collections of Halloween themed art that we’ve seen in a long while. Also, if your pockets are deep enough, you can even buy them. As a huge Andrew Bell fan, I’d kill to get my hands on that Zombiecorn, but alas, $500 is a little more than my wallet can currently handle.
If you can’t make it to the show, this is a great chance to check out some of our favorite pieces from the event, which opens tonight!
