Dark Arts: Ghoulish Gary Pullin

H.P. Lovecraft
~by Marie Robinson

Gary Pullin, or 'Ghoulish Gary', is an extremely important name in the horror genre, and for good reason. This incredibly talented man is the art director for Rue Morgue magazine, and if you are familiar with the rag than you’ll recognize his artwork in the iconic masthead and in many covers and artwork throughout the issues. He has worked with many other magazines and even with Rob Zombie and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. He also makes beautiful movie poster art for Mondo, Skuzzles, and others.

Gary’s loud and colorful prints vary in styles; you can see examples of realism, pop art, and traditional tattoo artwork. Ghoulish Gary’s artwork is a treat for any hardcore horror fan, as he pays constant homage to classic actors and monsters. Check out a few pieces I picked out below, and view all of his gorgeous art on his website, here (

I love Ghoulish Gary's stuff! He's also a very cool guy in real life - he designs the art for Texas Frightmare Weekend and I met him there. Have you watch Birth of the Living Dead yet, the Night of the Living Dead doc? He did the art for that too and it's so good!
