Butcher Billy is a creative director at a successful digital agency in Brazil.  When he isn’t keeping clients happy, he spends his spare time working with pop culture themes to create some sensational art of his own.  He’s used characters from DC, Marvel, Stranger Things, Star Wars, music, politics and more to create images that resonate with the masses who adore his signature style.

His latest project tackles one of literature’s luminaries, Stephen King.  By combing some of King’s work paired with “heartbreak songs of the 70’s and 80’s” he has once again left us flabbergasted by his brilliance.  Behold, “Stephen King’s Stranger Love Songs” by Butcher Billy.

Stephen King is one of the most influential authors of horror, supernatural fiction, suspense, science fiction, and fantasy. His dark and twisted imagination has been crucial in shaping the contemporary pop culture since the late 70’s – when his novels were first discovered by filmmakers like Stanley Kubrick and Brian De Palma – until more recently with modern TV series like Stranger Things paying homage to his brilliant influence and monumental contribution to pop culture. – Butcher Billy

This series imagines an alternate universe in which some of the most hopeless, desperate and tragic heartbreak songs of the 70’s and 80’s were actually novels written by Stephen King. The concept is to look at the dark side of love through the lenses of pop culture, bringing twisted aspects of his classic stories to play with the original meanings of the songs – that can be completely subverted or strangely emphasized, while paying tribute to the vintage design of the original book covers and VHS cases. – Butcher Billy
