Like tossing salt over your shoulder after spilling some on the table or looking warily at a black cat as it crosses your path, reading our horoscopes hearkens back to an ancient practice that still manages to permeate our modern-day, high-tech world. Whether or not you check your horoscope on a daily basis or believe in its fortune cookie-like predictions, new artwork depicting the Zodiac signs as creepy creatures might make you see your personal sign in a new light.

Each image is available to purchase for $15 as an 8.5" x 11" print. To learn more about Hellandbrand and his work, visit:

    About the Author - Derek Anderson

    Raised on a steady diet of R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps books and Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Derek has been fascinated with fear since he first saw ForeverWare being used on an episode of Eerie, Indiana.

    When he’s not writing about horror as the Senior News Reporter for Daily Dead, Derek can be found daydreaming about the Santa Carla Boardwalk from The Lost Boys or reading Stephen King and Brian Keene novels.
