Giveaway Time! Win FIVE Awesome Art Prints From Cavity Colors!!

Photobucket

Back in November of last year, I did a 2012 Freddy In Space Gift Guide post about a Killer Klowns inspired piece of art from artist Aaron Crawford, who sells his art under the banner CavityColors.  I've since talked back and forth with Aaron a bit, and since I'm a huge fan of his work, which somehow manages to blend together horror, delicious dessert treats and a few hits of acid, I recently pitched him on the idea of partnering up for a little giveaway.  Because when I love something, I love to help get that something out there in the world, and into the homes of you loyal readers of this here blog.  That's just how I roll.
 
Not only was Aaron more than eager to partner up for such a giveaway, but he pretty well proved to me that he's as awesome as his art is when he told me to hand pick not one, not two, not even three ... but FIVE art prints from the CavityColors online shop, to giveaway in one massive bundle to one of you awesome readers.  Because, well, that's how Aaron rolls.
 
But before we get to all that good stuff, let's learn more about Aaron, and his art, courtesy of a quick copy and paste job from the CavityColors website!
 
Photobucket

 Aaron, the founder of CAVITYCOLORS, is a full-time artist / illustrator living in Augusta / Atlanta, GA. He creates nightmarish characters which can be seen on paintings and merchandise for bands, prints, and whatever else he decides to cover in his brightly colored monsters. He began doing art fulltime in 2003, but has been drawing and doodling since he could hold a pencil. Heavily inspired by horror movies, he spends his time creating stomach churning scenes with the deformed, skulls, demons, claws, slime, wrinkles, razor teeth and contorted limbs, he forces you into an alternate reality where the grotesque and evil aren’t ashamed to flourish. He first started doing clothing and logo branding for smaller hardcore and metal bands locally, but soon began doing work for national acts + companies across the country, such as The Used, Necro, Suicide Silence, All Shall Perish, and others. 
 
ABOUT THE BRAND:

I created CAVITYCOLORS in mid 2012 with the hopes of combining my love of art, monsters, Halloween, and horror, and celebrating all of these influences together with friends, while also attempting to invoke the same feeling you get while eating a slice of birthday cake with ice cream on top and watching your favorite slasher movie after midnight. I consider fans of horror and art to all be united as a family with a collective passion that we all share in some form or another. Applying all this into the brand, CAVITYCOLORS makes items to celebrate the things we love, through clothing, prints, books, stickers, and other things that we can all enjoy (or hate) together
_______________________________________

Well said, good sir.  So then, what five CavityColors prints did I choose?  Let's take a look, shall we?!

Photobucket

This first one is the Killer Klowns print that I mentioned at the top of this post, which I posted about last year.  It's a super limited edition, of only 20 pieces, and measures 11"x14".

Photobucket

You're also going to be getting this just released second take on the infamous cotton candy cocoon from Killer Klowns, limited to 50 pieces and measuring 13"x16".

Photobucket

We move from cotton candy to ice cream with 'Crite Bite Sundae', a mash-up of Critters and Friendly's that measures 13"x16", and is limited to 200 prints.

Photobucket

Next up we've got an 8"x10" print inspired by one of my favorite things of all time, the Goosebumps book The Haunted Mask.  Aaron's got this one available in three different color variants, but you're playing for the standard green/orange scheme.

Photobucket

And finally, this last print, titled 'The Sweet Marrow' was inspired by The Thing, and it also measures 8"x10".

Photobucket

As if all that wasn't enough, Aaron will also be throwing in a sticker pack and one of his 'Monsterheads' button packs, the latter of which is pictured above.  The buttons alone sell for seven bucks per pack in his shop, so the winner of this giveaway is really making out like a true bandit!

If you want in, all you've gotta do is head over to the Cavity Colors Facebook page, and give it a LIKE.  Once you do that, leave me a comment below and tell me one horror movie you'd love to see Aaron put his unique and totally trippy spin on.  Who knows, you just might inspire him for a future piece!

All comments must be received by next Saturday, January 19th, so be sure to leave yours before that day comes and goes.  Good luck and a huge thanks to Aaron Crawford for being so damn generous.

Head over to Cavity Colors to see much more of Aaron's awesome art, and to read his blog!

He should do a kick ass Hatchet piece!

diana bivona said...

I would love to see his vision on an immersion of a wicked horror romance. Sure the shock and gore is fun with horror but there is such a darkened beauty of horror that not many can capture. Between a twisted vision and his wonderful colors, I think it would make for something great.

Sean said...

I liked the page and would like to see him do a rad spin on Spookies,pumpkinhead, maniac cop, basket case and so many more. His artwork would display proudly in my fx studio!

Keep up the fantastic work.

Aaron is an amazing artist. I stumbled upon his page a few weeks ago and immediately liked it. I love his work. I would like to see his take on Child's Play. I've never liked lifelike dolls and that cheesy movie scared the hell out of me when I was a kid.

Thanks,

The Evil Dead!

i think it would be cool to see a series on aaron's take on the universal monsters. also, i think the toxic avenger and the brain that wouldnt die would be awesome especially since i think his style is perfect for those movies

i would love to see his take on The Strangers. or Frankenstein

Awkward Posture said...

I liked Cavity Colors and would LOVE to see a rendering of the body melting on the toilet from Street Trash. Either that or Drainiac :)

Mathew said...

I liked and own some limited prints from Aaron already! Love the work with fear and loathing and aquateen hunger force...as for horror film ideas or themes, I think possibly the classic movie SUSPIRIA could encourage some tradition horror film ideas, ANY of the evil dead or kingdom of darkness films are prime for colorful ideas...but most of all I like Aaron to just tear some artistic creativity in both Gremlin movies!!!!! Both are just ripe for ideas...take your pick, Arron could make the cute gremlins into to some sweet evil little beasts!! :)

CAVITYCOLORS said...

Loving the ideas so far! So exciting!

sara delk said...

LIKES :D!

This is awesome I love his work and I would say House of 1000 Corpses or The Attack of The Killer Tomatoes!!

drooolface said...

Ugh. Old horror movies are my favorite. I think it'd be totally rad if he did Creature from the Black Lagoon. He's always had a special place in my heart. :'3

Abby Lauren Edwards said...

Dude. House of 1,000 Corpses. I mean...you got Captain Spaulding what else do you really need? Haha

Devon Gordon said...

invasion of the body snatchers, the mist, hellraiser, the Blair witch project, Carrie, or even the exorcist :D

you should totally do captain spalding from house of 1000 corpses or even doctor satan.

ivyemstrikesback said...

Aaron Crawford rules. He should do The Stuff. Everyone loves The Stuff.

Raphael Motta said...



Oh yes! Mr. Crawford should do something pretty nasty with From Beyond, will fit his line so damn good, gnarly and creamy pineal penis gland
Tremors would be a nice catch if done by his eyes, those silly silly vermin creatures

Keep on the good work!

WrbbNews said...

I'd love to see what he could do with Suspiria! Stunning visuals to start with... (i obv liked the page)

scarletjupiter said...

It would be cool to see you do a print of Halloween 3 or The Stuff

Jimmy Crabtree said...

I guess I would not necessarily consider it a "horror" movie as original, but there are many twisted and dark versions of The Wizard of Oz...and with the new one coming out I think it would be amazing to see what Aaron could come up with. I could see Aaron coming out with quite an amazing set of prints.

If that doesn't count, then I would have to say maybe a Darkness Falls set...that would be sick.

I've been a fan of Aaron for a while now. I think some Toxic Avengers would fit his style perfectly. Seeing his take on Freddy would also be great.

I already own one of Aaron's prints, and I'd love to add more to my collection!

I'd really like to see Aaron's take on the famous zombie that adorns the artwork for Lucio Fulci's Zombie. I think he could do any zombie justice, but I could really see his vibrant style working especially well with that iconic image.

Kara Muir said...

Please enter me in the contest!!! I would like to see some cool art on Night Of The Comet (a much overlooked film). AND I really love the Critters art a lot! Kara Muir

toddrackham said...

Well "Freddy in Space" make me think of Freddy K with Ziggy Stardust paint

Anonymous said...

I've been following Aaron's work for a long time now since I first started following him on twitter. His shit is awesome and everything a horror fan eats up! Personally I'd like to see him tackle the classic movie monsters like Dracula, Wolfman, Frankenstein, Creature From The Black Lagoon, Mummy etc. Or the Crypt Keeper. Or a vamped out version of Edgar and Allan Frog!

The Beast Within would be awesome!
Nightbreed or The Howling!!

karithina said...

I've already liked Aaron's Facebook page :)

Damn it's hard to pick just one movie... but probably Day of the Triffids!

Sonny Bailey said...

Not so much a horror film, but The Dark Crystal would be amazing :)

A dude you may have met once. said...

Although it's not horror, would love to see your take on Eraserhead

Anonymous said...

I've been a fan of Aaron for a while now and own a few pieces already. I would love to see him take a shot at Beetlejuice which isnt a horror movie but I'd like to see his take and Monster Squad would be pretty cool.

Gnarly0_0Charli said...

After seeing mirrors the thought of a place full of horrors race through my mind. Knowing Aaron's vast encyclopedia of monsters and horrors I would ask of him to put his twist on a idea of a broken man whose on his knees in front of a mirror and just beyond the other side a world of horrors and pain. Aaron could just unleash hordes of nightmares .


Also after seeing zombie stripers racing thoughts of drop dead gorgeous undead babes and well I'd love to see Arron's take on this idea

I liked your face book pages using my brothers account Jason alvarez hope that's ok I don't have one - charlie alvarez

Bree Skye said...

I want to see Aaron Crawford at Plantation Blood
this year either walking through checking out the
haunt or maybe even acting alongside the rest of
the blood crew, terrify some kids and take whatever
inspiration may come from the night and create
whatever it is that he sees fit. OR Aaron can just
draw my blood character. I wouldn't mind that either.
On top of all of that, tribute to The Evil Dead would be pretty rad.

Eddie Gassner said...

I would love to see a very scary version of The Haunted Mansion from Disneyworld.. please :)

Parker said...

Old Greg!
..or Beetlejuice.

theparkerchristy@yahoo.com

Dr. Jimmy TERROR said...

Liked (and thank you for turning me on to him).

I would love to see him do Chet from Weird Science as the "butt wort" or whatever he is turned into by Lisa.

Since that's not a horror picture I'll give you one more, Tourist Trap. The wax melty-ness of his art would work quite well with it.

sanjr1 said...

I dig the whole hallucinogenic vibe his art exudes. it's like something I might see on an acid trip (A GOOD acid trip that is). Maybe he could take on one of Hennelotter's classics next like "Basket Case" or "Brain Damage".
Talk about the potential for "Trippy"!

Adam Bickford said...

Liked it! Would love to see a naked lunch or the fly design. Coraline or paranorman would be rad too.

jjkronauer23 said...

Out of all the horror movies I could think of, I'd like to see you do something from Dead Alive.. I think that would be soo awesome... Especially the scene with the ear falling in the pudding.. I know you could do something with that.. Change the pudding to ice cream.. And make the ear hole just, so Aaron Crawford looking. Haha. It would be the best movie for you to take ideas from.. From one artist to another. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

zeref kaze said...

I have liked both the Cavity Colors and Freddy in space page. I would love to see his take on insidious! I wasn't really a fan of art, not until I found his instagram acc. I love his work and have liked most of his work on instagram. Keep up the good work!

kaze.zeref@gmail.com

Leannnnnnne! said...

Holy cow. Aaron's work is gorgeous. And so many great ideas in here. Particularly, Henenlotter. I think Brain Damage or Frankenhooker would be perfect. But, my vote has to go to TerrorVision (Ted Nicolaou) with Society (Brian Yuzna) as a close second. Great stuff.

Brighton B said...

Had to add a few more that I'd love to see worked with! Evil Bong, for sure. Demonic Toys. And an oldie by the name of Stanley ( a rattlesnake that kills on command?? *want* lol).

Mullet said...

It has to be Ghoulies! Classic rubber puppet action!

I would love to see one piece that featured a collection of Clive Barkers characters.

Keep up the fantastic work Aaron!

A Sammy from Trick 'R Treat piece would be really cool, as would Toxic Avenger.

Juan Pablo said...

To be honest I like everything painted so far, but I would love to see more skulls with brains and blood! LOL

Gorgeous work, "Crite Bite Sundae" is fantastic! :D I would love to see what he could do with Demons, or Creepshow!
Thanks to you BOTH for such an awesome opportunity!
