Strange Daze Summer Music & Arts Festival. What up, ATL!

I've recently been asked to participate in an AWESOME art show / music fest August 9th in little 5 points in Atlanta, GA.

Here's my poster:

I will be displaying original drawings & a ton of original paintings, including a few of the Goosebumps series I am doing.

Here's an ad from the website:

"Strange Daze will feature 12 of the most bewildering and dynamic local bands that Atlanta has to offer! The band list includes musical acts within a variety of genres such as experimental, rock, punk, folk, progressive, acoustic, psychedelic, Americana, indie, and alternative, and many with a unique combo of any of the above!

Strange Daze will also be featuring local artists who will be displaying and selling their work during the festival! The art will include paintings, ceramics, jewelery, and much more!

Come join our explosion of creation at THE FIVE SPOT in Little 5 Points, 1123 Euclid Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30307-1925 - (404) 223-1100

3pm-12am, $3 before 7pm, $5 after 7pm"

If you live in the area, come say hi to me. It would be awesome.

Here's a list of artists that will be showing work:
Brandon D

War Graphics Arts

& Lindsey Ellcessor, Cooper, and a TON of others.

Taken from the Strange Daze website:

"What is Strange Daze?
The festival is meant to bring together some of the most intense creative minds that I've been lucky enough to find, for one day of commune with like-minded spirits. It's meant to help these artists get exposure as an entity of originality and substance. Strange Daze is not about rules, but convictions, not about conformity, but modification, not about what dazzles, but what inspires."

Hope to see you there!

Birthday wishes...

First off, thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday via the interwebz, even if you posted an obnoxious birthday ad or video, i really appreciate it, but this dude took it one step further.

My buddy David Bordett recently ordered the "Lolliwalker" painting, and upon boxing it, I decided to throw in some random goodies, and a midget, but the midget didn't fit, so I tossed him aside.
I had no idea that he would post a blog documenting the unpacking process, AND wishing me a happy birthday all at once.
Here's Davids happy birthday card...

You can check out his "Unboxing" blog at:

Check him out, and show him some love. He's a good dude.

Limited Edition Dracula shirts. Only a few left...

I was going through some bags of old shirts and posters when I stumbled on a box of Cryptic Aesthetic shirts that Goodfellas Merch sent me a few months back. Cryptic Aesthetic was the limited edition line of shirts I released through them. Some sold, some didn't, but these are what I have left of the stock.

They are tagless Anvil Shirts. If you know anything about Anvil, they are SUPER soft shirts, comparable to American Apparel.

I'd like to let these go for cheap. $13 that is. They are available in Small, Medium, Large, and X-Large.

Here's a few product shots.

Fever Swamp!

"There's something horrible happening in Fever Swamp. Something really horrible. It started with the strange howling at night. Then there was the rabbit, torn to shreds. Everyone thinks Grady's new dog is responsible. After all, he looks just like a wolf. And he seems a little on the wild side. But Grady knows his dog is just a regular dog. And most dogs don't howl at the moon. Or disappear at midnight. or change into terrifying creatures when the moon is full.

Or do they?"

"Fever Swamp"



I decided to release the second painting in the "Goosebumps" series I am doing, to pay homage to the classic horror novels I read growing up. These books inspired me so much, I remember reading them under the covers late at night with a flashlight, when I was supposed to be going to sleep. (cliche', I know) & sitting in class sketching the covers. It even inspired me to write a short horror story when I was 9 that I entered in a school competition, and it turned out to win 1st place. Weird.

I will be releasing a total of 10 paintings based off of my favorite stories.
Here's the first one:

The series will available for purchase. If you're interested,
You can email me for pricing at aaroncrawfordart@gmail.com

Check back for another update SOON!

We're all Hellbound...

I was recently hired to design a shirt for The World We Knew on Stillborn Records.
Frank came to me wanting a metal style shirt, something not over the top gory or anything, just a solid metal shirt.

We discussed concepts, and finally settled on this.
You should be able to pick this up & cover your sweaty torso with it on their summer tour.

Getting rid of some paintings + other shiz

A few updates, so here we go.

I finally got around to setting up a big cartel store for some of the 11x14 paintings I have laying around the studio.
These are going for a very affordable price, cause honestly, they aren't doing me any good hanging up around my house, I'd rather see them go to someone else.

You can check out the store at http://aaroncrawford.bigcartel.com/

I'll also send some surprise horror posters & dvds in the package too.

As you have noticed, I finally got around to cleaning up my Blogspot site, which was floating empty as shit on the internet for ages like an old man lost in the sahara, so if you have one, you can follow my news at: http://aaroncrawfordart.blogspot.com/

I recently completed some new designs for Catalepsy and Ides of March.
Check them out Below;

"Hot Boxed"

"Ice Reaper"

I also have designs in progress for The World We Knew, a new line for Fright-Rags, They Found Her In Pieces, and a ton of others.

Hopefully I get the chance to update again soon...
See you soon.


Tattoo Convention / art show update

The 3rd annual Tattoo Convention was a success. My ears are still ringing from the symphony of tattoo guns buzzing away, carving at flesh. This year brought a ton of seriously amazing artists from all around the US. I was lucky enough to be able to take part in this, and display my work alongside Adam O'Shell, an awesome painter and dude from Augusta. Wish I had more pictures to show some of the tattoos people had / were getting, but it would be never ending.

Here's a few photos from the show:

Corona at noon. Can't complain about that.

Our ghetto rigged display using chairs and cardboard boxes. One frame fell and shattered, but other than that, it worked out.

One of the 1st Amendment booths. Eddie = metal as fuck.

Meshelle at the Tattoo Artist Magazine booth, alongside our display, getting photographed for the newspaper.
I'm in this picture, I just had my invisible suit on.

One of many amazing tattoos / artists there. Chris Farley tattoo, by Roman.

Saturdays crowd, mid-day.

Special thanks to everyone at 1st Amendment tattoo and Meshelle from Tattoo Artist Magazine for letting us display our work.
Can't wait to see what next year brings!
