The Art of Darkness

The Link Dump Wore Scarlet

April 26th, 2013 by Cobwebs

Edward Gorey’s Illustrations for War of the Worlds – Brain Pickings has a selection of illustrations. Although the original 1960 imprint is crazy expensive, it’s also available as a reprint.

Hover Sloth – Illustration by deviantART member bear65. I want a Hover Sloth.

Scar Makeup Tutorial – Fairly easy tutorial for making good-looking fake scars. (Although my personal preference has always been for Rigid Collodion for super-easy gnarly-looking scars.)

Jumping Spider T-shirt – One of those hyper-realistic T-shirts featuring an oversized jumping spider face.

The 6 Least Solemn Funerals Around the World – A roundup.

Release the Hugs – Sweet little Webcomic.

Harry Potter Birthday Party – Some lovely ideas, both for a party and also for Halloween decorations.

Knitmare on Elm Street – Instructions for knitting Freddy Krueger, Nosferatu, and lots of other weird little friends. Related: Knit Your Own Zombie, Super-Scary Mochimochi, and Knit a Monster Nursery.

Dinosaur Plant Markers – I quite like the idea of using cheap plastic toys as plant markers; it’d be easy to use spiders, bats, and skulls instead of dinosaurs.

LiarTownUSA – A Tumblr of Photoshopped hilarity.
