What would you call a handmade item that leans more toward scary and horrific than pretty and pleasing? The folks at the aptly-named Craftastrophe have a knack for finding such items and they’ve located one that might interest you expectant parents out there.
It’s a custom baby ultrasound painting rendered by an artist who goes by the name of WyldAngelz and sells her wares on Etsy.
She’s not a bad artist. Her paintings of infants are sweet and her pet portraits are kind of cute. But her ultrasound paintings? Creepy with a capital C.
Art is always open to interpretation, but the artist herself acknowledges that these paintings are “somewhat abstract and surreal in appearance.”
I think that’s a bit of an understatement. They look like terrifying goblin babies and not something I would want hanging on the wall in my house.
But that’s just me. Surely somebody, somewhere would appreciate such a unique objet d’art. What about you? Would you pay $85 for such a portrait?
