We all have strange and irrational fears, but few of us make a living off them like Fran Krause.


Show Full Text

The LA-based cartoonist, who we previously wrote about here, has added new comics to his Deep Dark Fears series, and they're just as morbidly delightful as the last batch. Krause has gained a cult following on Tumblr thanks to his knack for illustrating the most paranoid corners of people's minds, and his work is almost entirely based on user input. Some of the comics turn ridiculous phobias into humorous imagery, while others deal with serious trauma.

The lifeblood of the project is how universal it is. It shows the fears that so many of us share, and encourages us to embrace them. Check out some of the latest Deep Dark Fears below, but make sure to leave the light on.

THIS! I always position my bed affixed in a wall and every night when I sleep I always make sure that I am glued to the wall. I am afraid that creepy monsters will grab me by the hand or foot and take me to their dark kingdom. I thought of this even under my bed there is no space for monster to squeeze in because its full of "sentimental stuff".

Understandable given how fast time flies. Can't believe we're already into Feb for example.
