Almost everyone has read at least a little bit about their astrology sign and found out what it meant in regards to who they are. This artist took each zodiac sign and made them into horrifying monsters, and the results are pretty amazing.
If you have ever looked into the zodiac you know what specific animal is the symbol for your sign. Scorpios are scorpions, Cancers are crabs, and so on and so fourth. However, what if your sign was represented by a nightmarish creature instead? That is what artist Damon Hellandbrand has done in these twelve photographs.
“I basically took what I knew the signs represented in terms of their name (i.e. Cancer = Crab, Leo = Lion, Pisces = Fish etc). and proceeded to illustrate them as human/animal hybrids,” says Damon.

“I have a fondness for anything fantasy related or anything that doesn’t exist in reality,” Damon Hellandbrand told Bored Panda, “and mythology certainly has that in spades”
These mesmerizing photos are a bit surreal and a bit abstract nightmare, but Damon’s unique portrayal of the zodiac is something that is hard to take your eyes off of. It is no wonder either, as Damon lists his inspiration as being artists such as Frank Frazetta, Ralph McQuarrie, and Boris Vallejo.
