Deep Dark Fears is a Tumblr blog by artist and animator Fran Krause devoted to illustrations of the deepest, darkest fears we carry within us.

Funny, disturbing, and relatable, Krause takes readers’ submissions of their childhood fears and fantasies and turns them into horrifying scenarios of people slipping on icy pavements and impaling their eyes on sharp iron fences, fingers being sliced off by ice skates, and being pulled into space by a reversal of gravity. Krause also illustrates his own quirks and obsessions, such as his musings on developing carpal tunnel syndrome from drawing too much, and imagining seeing and hearing scary things at night.
