"Crazy, crazy kids on a crazy night, a night for pink balloons all over the sky and a candyfruit tree at the end of the street, and he rocked his girl in his arms, sugartight, and he was king of the moon and the streamers and popcorn."
Jay Gilbert, The Skinner

Pop Surrealism, also referred to as a bridge between "highbrow" and "lowbrow" art, is a unique form of visual expression. Pop culture merges with classical art as popular characters, or modern items, are depicted in a refined artwork. The style has been around for a few decades now, and it's gaining popularity through artists such as Brandi Milne.

Like a kid after Halloween, MoMA is on a sweet, sweet sugar rush this March, and there's nothing that would raise our spirits more, than - you guessed it! - even more candy. This month we challenge you to design a candy store with a twist. What's the twist, you ask? Well, it needs to be a
horror-themed candy shop. Although such a weird combination might sound impossible to be shown in one piece of art, try your best to make it as sweetly spooky as possible. If you don't know how to start, this artwork by the aforementioned Brandi Milne might inspire you:

+ Design a horror candy shop using the medium of your choice.
+ Create your entry in the style of Pop Surrealism.

So, by horror-themed candy store, do we have to show elements of an actual shop? Because the example inspiration image doesn't portray that.

Pop surrealism is very confusing and interpretive it seems.

@Chaotic-Cam yes, please show elements of the shop. The example inspiration image is just something to give you an idea about how the style looks, and help you get in that sweets&horror mood

Haha, same. I'm winging it though and trying my best.

I've probably drawn more this week than I've ever done in my whole life, however. And I'm not joking.

Do we have to sign our names if we are doing traditional art?
Sorry for asking this so late! D:

@ephemeral_star you don't have to sign it, but it is a way of ensuring your work doesn't get stolen.
