Last month, we launched the 2nd annual Rabbit In Red Awards to celebrate all things horror. Over 1,000 votes were cast in categories like Horror Film of the Year, Horror Art of the Year, Scream Queen of the Year and more.

Horror Art of the Year
Chucky by @kmcartworks
Kimberly’s obsession with Halloween is what sparked her career of doing horror art. One October, she made it a challenge to sketch a favourite character portrait every day, for 30 days. This Chucky drawing is creepy because it’s almost life-like, just like the doll itself!
