The Artwork Has Always Been Spooky

Chad Savage was a dark artist from the moment his pudgy little hands were able to set crayon to paper. He was the kid that loved Halloween better than Christmas, rooted for Godzilla and Dracula, and really worried his Southern Baptist parents. It was very clear early on that Chad wanted to celebrate Halloween 365 days a year.

With a degree in illustration and graphic design, 25+ years' experience drawing and designing for the horror genre and nearly 20 years' experience in web design, Chad got his wish. Halloween, for him, is every day. His company Sinister Visions inc. is thriving, providing web design, print design, illustration, sound design, font design and more for the horror, Halloween and haunted attraction industries. Sinister Visions has designed and maintains hundreds of dark websites; odds are you've already been to a few of them.

Chad's artwork has appeared in (and on the cover of) numerous books and magazines and garnered awards from same. His original fonts have appeared on books, magazines, DVDs, CDs, TV shows and in movies. Besides running genre sites like and, he is the Art Director and Lead Designer for Zombie Army Productions (, Chicago's Flashback Weekend horror convention, TransWorld Trade Shows, is the founder of the Cult of the Great Pumpkin ( and proudly sponsors numerous dark genre events and projects.

Chad has instituted/managed dark art exhibitions for a number of conventions over the last decade like HorrorFind Weekend, Flashback Weekend, the World Horror Convention and CONvergence. He remains an active participant and proponent in the dark art community.

Chad currently lives and works outside of Chicago with his fabulous (and tolerant) wife, lovely daughters and their fairy dogmothers.

I was never afraid of the dark as a child. I was, however, often terrified of what might have been hiding in it. In my mind's eye I pictured strange and fantastic creatures, sometimes beautiful, often grotesque. At a very early age I began to try to capture the images in my mind on paper, and I've never stopped.

There is a place in this world for the bizarre. There is a time for the twisted. Anyone who doubts this needs only look at the success of such visionaries as H.R. Giger, Clive Barker, Brom or even Stephen King. It's no secret that the most conservative person, given the opportunity, will thrill to tales of the dark or the sight of blood.

To my thinking, things grotesque and sinister are not without their own unconventional beauty; the most hideous spider may spin the loveliest web. My work is an argument that 'dark' is not synonymous with 'evil'; that there is nothing to fear in the night if you make it your own. After all, there is no light without the dark to define it.

This is what I'm about.

This is what my art is about.
