Sunny days by Kate-FoX

We rarely see works of art that "truly" catch our eye; such as this, and rightly so. Although many critique works of the digital format...

Graffitii Original Icepack Crew by darkriddle1
Graffitii Original Icepack Crew

"The Truth About Ice-Pack": IC-8 was a crew called ICE. It was more notably known as "Ice-Pac" which (through Zore) later gave rise to the crew SB. Because Ice-Pak had the majority of its members spawned from BTB or DCU, some considered it a rogue clique of BTB that"defected" from the main branch.

Though in reality it was a crew that stood on it's own merit. The Ice-Pak name was made by Dark Riddle, but it was the people in the crew that gave it its reputation as a strong and diverse graffiti clique. It was actually comprised of 3 crew's best initiates, BTB, Maniacal 3, and Kemp crew. Riddle from BTB, London, Arte and Rascal of Man-3, and Zorro of Kemp crew. For reasons unknown, Ice-Pak is Chicagos' most "misunderstood" crew, with its real history often being "altered" ranging from rumors that is was a subdivision of SB crew, to it being a North-side crew.

In reality Ice-Pak was a small innovative crew from the Southwest side that later drew in more talented writers such as Dane and Ban one. Some major piecing zones for this crew were the 26th Street Area, Pulaski Austin Line, the Chinatown Hall of Fame and the Walls of Sin.

"I remember we had a lot of great times. All these guys were fun-loving guys with great talent and strong independent minds. Lots of laughs and wild adventures with these brothers. It may not be good to live in the past, but it's certainly fun to remember it!!! LOL" --- Dark Riddle.

Peek A Boo by darkriddle1
Peek A Boo

"Peek-A-Boo": Take a peek, you're set to seek, while the Autumn sky rings in, witches' lust or love, we must, to shiver off that sin, travel light and travel fast, words to warn, all in the past. Leaves fall soft, to and fro, like lives confused, now where to go? Up or down, or all around, just duck and move that vicious sound, of spells and candle's spit, and manic crazed and minds get dazed; beware the wild fit...We do this now with push and shove, it's all to please the one above, and if we will it hard enough, we're sure to gain the grandest Love.

Among the most well-known "Hypergothic" surrealist-artists and authors from the United States, "Dark Riddle" is a Chicago-based artist and author, primarily known as a popular graffiti muralist, then turned to build a fan base in the genera of science fiction and surreal horror.

Hello, I am the owner of the group and blog Frontiers of Zoology, about Cryptozoology. At the time I started the group in 2006, you had a lot of Cryptozoology stuff on the net and I put some of it my group after sending you the message then, but it has since disappeared. I would love to have some of your stuff up on my blog. We just finished a series on Chupacabras there. Please drop me a line or visit the blog if you can.

I have since done a book called Chupacabra Visions which has even more cryptids in it. That work as well as other creature work of mine could be found here -in my "Bestiary folder". You can use the artwork as you please as long as you give me "Dark Riddle" credit for the art. Thanks for your interest.
