Over at Hideous Things. you will find things that are not so hideous. The artwork of Chelsey Pettyjohn may not seem beautiful to everyone, but I find a certain attraction to her heavy brushstrokes and thick application of paint. The unusual color choices for skin tone are intriguing and the coarse stare of her characters are perfect in her Commandments series.
