Video: ‘Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark’ 3D Chalk Art
  |  @   |  

Many people, myself included, were deeply scarred by author Alvin Schwartz‘s horror book series Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, especially with artist Stephen Gammell‘s original illustrations. Recently a movie adaptation of the books has been in development, and earlier this year it was announced that Guillermo del Toro was now working on it with the possibility of even directing it himself.

It will likely be a bit before get a better idea of where the movie is going. So for now, here’s a video to hold you over. The video is of an artist creating a 3D chalk re-creation of one of Gammell’s drawings. It’s a quick video for sure, but still cool to see.

Check out the video below.

This is the first I’m seeing of these 3D chalk art videos on the AWE me YouTube channel, known for video series like “Man at Arms” and “DIY Prop Shop,” but there’s plenty more to check out as well if interested.

Notable videos include Boba Fett from Star Wars; one of the works of old school mindfreaker M.C. Escher; a spitting Dilophosaurus from Jurassic Park; the Star Trek bridge ready for a Space Invaders battle; and some great retro gaming pieces like Duck Hunt, Pac Man, Tetris, and my personal favorite, the awesomely pixelated King Hippo from Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!! and Donkey Kong. And hey, even if you aren’t into video games, they have one good old game of skeeball set up as well.

To put it more simply, they do lots and lots of excellent geeky chalk art.


On this episode, Master Chalk Artist Chris Carlson takes on an epic drawing!

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is a series of three children’s books written by Alvin Schwartz and illustrated by Stephen Gammell.
