Horror movies scare, excite, and fascinate us, which is where Virginia-based artist Ed Harrington drew his inspiration for his latest project from.
Harrington, known by the Instagram name, nothinghappenedtoday, has had a love for the horror genre since he was a child, and his new series called IKEA Instructions shows us how to make the villains with simple instructions inspired by IKEA’s instructions that come with the furniture.
The artist studied illustration and graphic design at Virginia Commonwealth University and he’s worked in the field for the past 20 years.
“I thought it would be funny to create IKEA instructions for the Human Centipede—I liked it so much that I applied the style to other horror films,” he told Bored Panda when talking about the series.
In addition to horror movie characters from movies, he also creates ones from books. Some of our favorites include Samara Morgan, the girl who emerged from the videotape in The Ring, Carrie White from Stephen King’s Carrie, and the creapy bear from Midsommar.
