Uncanny pic: Austin Osman Spare

Sorry I’ve not posted for a while – partly this was down to my computer running rather erratcially. Also, I’ve been putting a lot of effort into a ghost-related project which I hope I’ll be able to announce before the end of the year. So here we are back again with one of the great occult artists, Austin Osman Spare, with one of his most famous images – Vampires. It doesn’t matter how often I see this painting reproduced, it always gives me the creeps. There is something so arrogant and malevolent in this creature’s stare.
