Strange creatures live in the mind of Emma Klingbeil and thank goodness for it. The Wisconsin native has a bevy of prints over on Etsy that are sure to enchant and disturb in equal measure. Klingbeil's work depicts a vast dreamscape filled with monsters, sea creatures and nurses (perhaps due to the occupational hazards of hanging with said monsters/sea creatures). Reminiscent of David Firth's work (Salad Fingers will forever remain the creepiest of creeps, meant of course in the best possible sense) Klingbeil's creatures are far less malignant and are in fact rather inviting with their love of food and toothsome grins beckoning you to join in the shenanigans.
