Artist Ben Venom is interested in extremes. On the one hand, there are the subcultures he pulls inspiration from: bikers, heavy metal, believers in the occult. And on the other, there’s the material he uses: good old-fashioned quilts, the kind Venom himself admits are “usually relegated to your grandmother’s sewing circle.” The final product is a series of quilts styled with skeletons, knives, eyeballs, and other major departures from the pastels we’re all used to, taken from T-shirts Venom’s picked up in his travels. Click through for a look at some of Venom’s coolest designs, which we spotted via BOOOOOOOM!
