Fifty Spooks by State

Alexandra Glenn-Collins is an artist who has created a unique project – Fifty Spooks by State. Inspired by her mother taking her camping in north western Canada, the camp fire ghost stories inspired this concept. Having camped in areas rife with Bigfoot and Ogopogo legends, Alexandra became interested in local legends and  wanted to do something to highlight the uniqueness of each state’s haunted culture—even if they are not all the state’s most famous ghost.

Having lived most of her life in New Jersey, she noted that it was a strange and haunted state, full of ghosts, cryptids, and weird history. Both she and her family are firm believers in the supernatural, and strongly believe that her mother’s home is haunted.

This project was her  final for a Language and Letterforms class. It involved a copious amount of looking up ghosts, drawing, and digital layout. The original is 85 inches long. In the future, Alexandra would like to turn the ghosts into a book or game.
