I'm starting to get in the Halloween spirit, aided in part by the dark and gloomy weather we're having here in Chicago. Since I'm not a fake-cobweb-and-Styrofoam-tombstones kinda decorator, I thought I'd take a look around for some macabre art to satisfy my spooky needs…

Love by Chicago artist Mitch O'Connell is gloomy and beautiful all at once.
• Dimitri Tsykalov carved a delicate skull from an apple, creating a naturally haunting piece. Via Environmental Graffiti.
• This line drawing of York Minster by etsy artist KingKoopa16 is creepy (in the best way) with its stark black and white composition.
• From one of the most macabre artists, the original painting of Salvador Dali's Untitled is available through ArtBrokerage.com for $160,000.
Robert Williams, who you metal heads may know as the artist who did the controversial Guns N' Roses Appetite for Destruction album art, brings us this devilish scene in Hollywood After Midnight.
