The Art of Darkness

For Those of Us with Baby Bats

July 31st, 2007 by Cobwebs

Ragnar’s Got Your Nose is a tale of two brothers; the evil brother steals the good one’s nose and then subjects it to all manner of torture. The illustrations are very Ren-and-Stimpy.

The Skull Project

July 27th, 2007 by Cobwebs

Skull Project BookIn 2003, tattoo artist and painter Matthew Amey put together The Skull Reference, 151 drawings of a human skull done from every possible angle. Amey recently gave copies of that book to 150 artists in 18 countries, assigned them an “angle,” and invited them to re-interpret that image. The result is a new book called The Skull Project.

(Beware–the site is in Evil Flash, and contains all manner of irritating Javascript.)

If you think about this comment for a few minutes, it begins to seem terribly plausible. Then you can almost hear reality start to unravel.

The Anticraft

July 24th, 2007 by Cobwebs

Skeleton PurseThis site is marvelous inspiration for all sorts of craftiness. From their “antifesto:”

We were deep in the clutches of a weeklong absinthe binge when the Divine Hand of Brilliance touched us in an inappropriate place. When this vision came, we knew we must create a haven for all the sinister crafters of the world. No more would we be cowed into silence by cheerful scrapbook stickers. Never again would we be forced to gleefully execute a sweater of intarsia puppies.

Their archives contain lots of crafts in many different media, along with suggested skill levels so you can find the darkness that suits you best.
