The Art of Darkness

The Night of the Link Dump

August 8th, 2014 by Cobwebs

BACK – A western/fantasy webcomic “about the end of the world. Not post apocalyptic just the end of it all.” There’s an alternate Tumblr feed.

Christopher McKenney – This photographer calls himself a “horror surrealist.” His works are both lovely and really unsettling.

Les Vampires Oracle Cards – “Ancient Wisdom and healing messages from the Children of the Night.” Doll-like vampires with beestung lips help divine your future. There are other decks by the same artist: Oracle of the Shapeshifters and Oracle of Shadows and Light.

Zombie Apocalypse Engagement Photo Shoot – Fun themed photo shoot.

31 Days of Halloween Parties – Site with a couple of years’ worth of party ideas; it hasn’t been updated since 2012, but there are some useful links.

55 Words – I sort of love the idea of dinosaur ghosts.

Eye Heart Spleen – Pretty photo series of flowers arranged to look like human organs.

Improved Thrift Store Paintings – Artist Chris McMahon buys cheap paintings and “improves” them with monsters. They are utterly wonderful. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – There is going to be a Harry Potter spin-off movie. Color me unsurprised.

Biology of Mermaids – Famed oceanographer Karl Banse has written a “serious” (in the sense of humor written with a straight face, rather than actual belief) scientific treatise on mermaids. A PDF of the full paper is here.


p.s. – I’m going to be dragged, kicking and shrieking, away from the computer for a week. Due to the magic of advance scheduling blog posts will continue as usual, but if you email and I don’t respond I’m not ignoring you. (Or am I? Muwahahahaha.)
