Art book, local Canadian artist, creepy/off-beat horror art "Kamila is a cornucopia of dreadfulness. Her works at once beautiful and terrible, each piece like being tickled by Death's cold little fingers, every bewitching creation a world I want to know more about." - Gerald Brom Welcome to the art and mind of Kamila Mlynarczyk (better known as @WoodedWoods). This book houses a collection of Kamila's art (some from online and some not) created from 2017 - 2019 and charts her progression into illustration art from her most famous Art Dolls. She describes her fascinating creative process and many of the inspirations behind her countless creepy, unsettling, yet poignant (and often hilarious) sketches. The writing describes the rhyme and reason behind why everyone needs a little snail friend, why cute poops make this world a better place, and why werewolves always hesitate before devouring the sacrificial girl-child. To Kamila, nothing fictional can ever be as frightening as reality, and so much of her inspiration comes from the right here and now. She strives to depict the most terrible things in a sympathetic light, and in that way they become more beautiful than reality, more light-hearted than realistically possible, and through their relatability they become cheeky and charming-they become cathartic.

Kamila Mlynarczyk is an Ontario-based artist that made a name for herself with her Art Dolls. Her fresh, if gruesome, creations have been showcased internationally and she has garnered a sizeable online following. Kamila has always worked in various mediums, but over the past five years she has been what she terms "re-learning how to draw" and drawing relentlessly. I can be myself when everyone I know is dead... follows her personal and public (through online presence) journey from Art Dolls through re-learning how to draw, to absurd character studies, to completed scenes. Kamila draws inspiration from her life and from reality as nothing fictional can ever frighten us in the same way that reality can. She strives to depicting the most terrible things in a sympathetic light, and in that way they become light-hearted, they become cathartic, they become freeing.

Her creepy dolls and illustrations tick all the boxes for me: creepy, hilarious and rendered in a masterfully whimsical style that I absolutely love. - Chet Zar Welcome to the art and mind of Kamila Mlynarczyk (better known as @WoodedWoods).
