Among gallery owners and collectors, Skad is known as The Atrocity Artist for his transgressive paintings depicting zombified people fused with transistors, vacuum tubes, and circuit boards. But his true masterpiece, his ultimate atrocity, has been his own existence. To reach his goals, Skad has destroyed more lives than he can remember, all with a cruel blend of indifference, malice, and glee. Now, reeling from the death of his estranged son and facing his own approaching mortality, he returns to his family home on Lake Sauvage to get some peace. But the community by the water has a long memory, and in its earth, the past refuses to stay dead. David J. Thirteen presents a Wattpad Exclusive: THE ATROCITY ARTIST, a story of quiet horror.
