Όλοι κάτι φοβούνται. Άλλοι τις αράχνες, άλλοι τους κλόουν, άλλοι τα φίδια.
Ο καλλιτέχνης Shawn Cross πραγματοποίησε τον Οκτώβριο ένα εξαιρετικά ενδιαφέρον πρότζεκτ που συνίσταται στην προσπάθεια απεικόνισης των πιο συνηθισμένων μορφών φοβίας.

Somniphobia – day 31 of #inktober / #feartober . FearTober book launches tomorrow. Might wanna sign up on the AMN mailing list today. Just saying 😉 This fear is unexpectedly common, as sleep disturbances like nightmares, stress about work or relationships can lead to or reinforce somniphobia. Those who have frequent nightmares are at greater risk. People with this phobia might experience insomnia, sleepwalking and bed wetting. The root word “somnus” is Latin meaning “sleep”. This fear is also called "hypnophobia", the fear of being hypnotized, a condition where the person is literally made to go in a sleep-like state. The term “clinophobia” originates from the root word “clino”, which is Greek for “bed”. Thank you so much to everyone who has followed me on my second inktober journey. Launch day tomorrow! #inktober2017 #feartober #shawncoss #amnclothing #popeofhell_art
Epistemophobia – day 30 of #inktober / #feartober . FearTober book launches Nov 1! Epistemophobia is the fear of knowledge. The origin of the word epistemo is Greek (meaning knowledge) and phobia is Greek (meaning fear). It is important for us to continue learning everyday because once we stop learning, our minds begin to stagnate, and we ourselves stop improving. But for an epistemophobe, too much knowledge is frightening. This fear might have been brought about by learning something, like for instance reading in a medical book about a particular disease and realizing its severity made someone wish that he or she did not read about it in the first place. One might also feel responsible that they should share their knowledge with other people and fear that what they pass on to others is erroneous thus they refuse to learn so that they don’t have to feel responsible for others. Knowledge is power, and some fear this power that they acquire when they are knowledgeable. People with this fear will do anything to stay away from books and will not read anything on the newspaper or magazine. One might also refuse to watch television for fear that they might learn something from it. Treatment ironically involves teaching the person not to fear learning or knowledge. They should be taught that learning new things is part of our everyday lives #inktober2017 #shawncoss #amnclothing #feartober
Philophobia – day 29 of #inktober / #feartober . FearTober book launches Nov 1! Follow @amnclothing to know when the book and prints launch! Thought I'd go for a more metaphorical description of that falling in love feeling. The fear of love (or falling in love) phobia is known as Philophobia. The word originates from Greek “filos” which means ‘loving or beloved’. Individuals who suffer from this phobia fear romantic love or forming emotional attachments of any sort. As far as unusual phobias are concerned; Philophobia certainly ranks high in the list. Often this phobia is known to have cultural or religious roots, where the person may have been committed to an arranged marriage and hence fears falling in love. #shawncoss #inktober2017 #phobia #feartober #inktoberfear #philophobia #butterfliesinmytummy
Blennophobia – day 26 of #inktober / #feartober . FearTober book launches Nov 1 Blennophobia is the irrational and persistent fear of icky, gooey, and slippery slime that can occur in some people. Slime can be found in nature or can be man-made and are usually transparent, sticky and viscous. This fear could have been triggered by seeing a person getting slimed on television such as in the horror movies where people might be swallowed alive by aliens and opening up the aliens’ belly would reveal the person still whole and covered in thick gooey slime but already lifeless. Some might fear that slime can have an offensive smell or it can have germs in it so they get anxious when they see it. This fear may have also been brought about by fear of ghosts, like people who were born to the time of Ghostbusters who can associate ghosts with slime and Slimer. Some might have accidentally slipped on goo and sustained injury thus this fear develops. On the other hand, snails produce copious amount of slime and people might have experienced eating escargot in restaurants and have found the experience unappealing thus they develop blennophobia. People with this fear get extremely anxious when exposed to slime. They may have palpitations, tremors, shortness of breath or may have nausea and vomiting when they see escargot. Treatment includes avoidance of slime since we do not encounter slimy stuff every day. Medications are rarely needed as well as psychotherapy. #inktober2017 #shawncossart #popeofhell_art #feartober

Chronophobia – day 20 of #inktober / #feartober . 🕕Amnclothing.com🕕 book release Nov. 1! ——– Chronophobia is a specific psychological phobia which manifests itself as a persistent, abnormal and unwarranted fear of time or of the passing of time. A related but much rarer phobia is chronomentrophobia, the irrational fear of clocks and watches. Like many other phobias, the main symptoms include panic, unease, depression, anxiety, and often a feeling of claustrophobia (of being closed in, with no escape). In some more serious cases, individuals may experience shaking, shortness of breath, excessive sweating, irregular heartbeats, even sickening states of mind, inability to articulate words, tunnel vision and overwhelmingly haunting thoughts. Sufferers may be aware of a vague feeling that events are moving too fast and running away with themselves, and that it is difficult to make sense of the way events are unfolding. Chronophobia is often marked by a sense of derealization in which time seems to speed up or slow down, and some people may develop circular thought patterns, racing thoughts and symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder. #inktober #feartober #inktoberphobias #shawncossart #jakeparker #creepyart #whatsyourfear #inkart #inktober2017 #popeofhell_art #chronophobia
Emetophobia – day 18 of #inktober / #feartober . All month I'm creating art depicting a new phobia. What's your fear?
