A true fan and friend of boogeymen, Devin Forst is a Pennsylvania-born illustrator with a penchant for the dark and supernatural. An honors graduate from the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design, Devin grew up running through the woods in search of monsters, reading dark fairy tales, and watching a slew of fantastical films such as Labyrinth and Hocus Pocus…so it’s no wonder his work is teeming with wild magic and mystery. Outside of his growing Instagram presence, he has conjured up designs for Dark Hart Books, Wicked Clothes and Creep-O-Rama, exhibited work at MUZEO in Anaheim, California, and his artwork and writing has appeared in publications such as Dark Matter Magazine, Mysticum Magicae and Blood of Gods. He also illustrated Liz Kay's poetry in The Witch Tells the Story and Makes It True, published by Quarter Press, which won the IPPY 2021 bronze award.
Devin’s greatest wish is that his work — through the power of storytelling — might inspire other people to celebrate the magic that can be found all around us, and appreciate the unique beauty in the darker and more mysterious aspects of life.
With artwork that's been described as "menacing melancholy," "feral gothic" and "witchery, with attitude," perhaps it can inspire you too to delve a bit deeper into the dark.
