The Art of Darkness

Stuff I Found While Looking Around

April 9th, 2014 by Cobwebs

As usual, here’s a bunch of images I’ve run across which I want to share but might not be able to hang a whole post on. Some of them have no attribution, so if you happen to know the source for any of these please leave a note in the comments. (Click to view larger.)

Skull Cup

Skull Mug

I originally found this at Design You Trust, where it’s erroneously presented as a “design concept.” Sadly, it’s actually a staged photo by deviantARTist CRuS23, so there will be no production. Oh, well; it’s pretty.
Creepy Statue

Creepy Statue

I can’t find an original source for this image, so I don’t know where the statue is located (there’s another photo from a slightly different angle here). Still, I’d be reluctant to walk past it on a rainy evening.
Han in Carbonite

“Han in Carbonite” Refrigerator

This is a photoshopped entry in an image challenge, created by artist Quentin Devine. I am sad indeed that it doesn’t actually exist.
Cat Makeup

Cat Makeup

This elaborate design was created by makeup artist Tal Peleg. She’s got many other amazing examples on her site.
Tim Burton Shoes

Tim Burton Shoes

I can’t find an original source for these; all roads lead to Pinterest. They look suspiciously ‘shopped; yet another crushing disappointment where something should be real and available for purchase but isn’t.
Wall Treatment

Wall Message

Another one with no original source. I adore how simple yet effective this is. It’s just vinyl letters–made even easier by the fact that you don’t have to align them neatly–but the result is creepy as hell. (The message, by the way, is a lyric by La Dispute.)
Halloween Cake

Halloween Cake

Yet another frustrating example of an image appearing in dozens of roundups and Pinterest boards with no original attribution. I don’t know who made this, but I love the elegantly creepy design. (Bonus: Whilst trying to track down the source, I ran into this collection of cakes and cupcakes that seem mostly do-able by the home cook and this collection of cakes that are well beyond the average person’s talents but are gorgeous anyway.)
Hearse with Camper

Hearse with Camper

Another orphaned image. I love that the trailer matches the colors of the hearse.
Until I Say

Until I Say

Hooray! A source! This is by deviantARTist Ryan Alexander Lee, and illustrates the dangers of a mortal falling in love with a dryad.
Halloween Wall Decoration

Spooky Wall Sculpture

I was certain that this was a really fantastic Halloween prop; instead it’s a plastic bag sculpture by Khalil Chishtee (he has a site but it’s all Flash, so I’m linking to an image collection instead. Screw Flash). Something similar could probably by DIY’d as a Halloween prop with cheesecloth and starch.
