From Darkness We Create



HORRID originated as a way to use darkness to fuel creation. Through the discussion of dark and taboo topics, we provide a safe space for the strange and unusual. HORRID is a death-positive brand that focuses on themes of witchcraft, horror, science-fiction and the discussion of mental health.

The Magazine

HORRID magazine creates a platform to promote dark artists from around the globe, featuring 20-25 artists in each quarterly issue. A new themed issue is published every January, April, July and October.

The Creators of HORRID

Emerald Boes

Jake Boes

Blake Lockard


Emerald is a dark art photographer and practicing witch that lives in Denver, Colorado. Her work often explores themes of horror, fantasy, and mental illness. She created HORRID in 2018 in her spare bedroom, spending many nights hand-stapling each issue.

Lead Designer

Jake is a designer and musician based in Denver, Colorado. His DIY design style is inspired by science fiction and death metal. His work is often existential in nature, exploring questions of existence and purpose. His design aesthetic is inspired by the dark places, basements, and dungeons he inhabits. Truly a creature of the night, his creative vision for HORRID is a monolith of unknown origins.



Digital Designer

Blake is a digital designer, artist, and photographer based in Denver, Colorado. He's been practicing his craft since 2010. While his main focus is designing websites, Blake is also passionate about creating digital artwork. By combining his loves for digital art and website design, Blake created the HORRID website.
