Half Minute Horrors by ChanpART Half Minute Horrors by ChanpART
Here's a collaboration I did with Bobby Chiu @ :iconimaginism: for Harper Collins Publishing. This is a sneak peek of the cover for a book called "Half Minute Horrors" by Susan Rich. It's a collection of deliciously terrifying short short tales and creepy illustrations including bestselling talents Lemony Snicket, James Patterson, Neil Gaiman, R.L.Stine, Faye Kellerman, Holly Black, Melissa Marr, Margaret Atwood, Jon Scieszka, Brett Helquist, and many more.

If you're interested in purchasing the book, please go to [link]

Hope you like it!

Half Minute Horrors is a fantastic collaboration between *ChanpART and `imaginism for a book cover. They were able to make such diverse characters while keeping the look and feel in presenting the viewers on what the book is all about. ( Featured by jcroxas )

I do like how the creatures are pretty much people...in human suits.

Having looked at the Amazon page, I might consider this. In a few years, my cousin will be old enough to understand what we read to her.
