villains1A regular on the east coast horror convention scene, as well as a frequent exhibitor at art galleries around the world, Isaac Bidwell’s unique creations always stand out from the pack, as fun is almost always the name of the game when it comes to his art.

Constantly churning out new pieces, and even a line of handmade stuffed dolls, Bidwell has nailed the art of making mean and nasty horror villains look cute and cuddly, and it’s that particular line that we’re here to shine the spotlight on today.

In Bidwell’s world, you see, the biggest and baddest horror icons aren’t quite as evil as they’ve always been depicted. Jason just wants a hug, for example, while Pinhead merely wants to give you a gift. As for Freddy, well, he’s all about the high-five – and it’s not his fault if you lose a few fingers in the process.

Check out all of Bidwell’s friendly horror villains below and be sure to head over to his website to see more and purchase select prints!
