They're Creepy & They're Kooky

I'm having a "do I like it or am I creeped out" conundrum of a relationship with these paintings by Mark Ryden. They remind me of Tim Burton or the Smurfs {I think it's the big heads} or some cute cartoon -very ethereal, but they are also terrifying -like the stuff of nightmares. What do you think? Love or Hate?

{A Dog Named Jesus, 1997}

{Girl Eaten By A Tree, 2006}

{Allegory of the Four Elements, 2006}

{Goodbye Bear, 2006}

{Ghost Girl, 2006}

{Girl in A Fur Skirt, 2008}

{Grotto of the Old Mass, 2008}
