The Art of Darkness

Twelve Angry Link Dumps

February 17th, 2012 by Cobwebs

Alex Gross – Artist who takes antique photographs and paints over them, turning their subjects into superheroes, monsters, and other fanciful things.

Edgar Allan Pooh – Great “Bizarro” strip. (Hat tip to Limeyfish)

Your Guide to Cemetery Research – This is skewed a bit toward genealogical research, but it has a lot of useful information about how to “read” a cemetery, such as analyzing the local “community” and how to decipher various gravestone symbols. (Also genealogical research is an excellent excuse to just wander around old graveyards.)

Celestefrittata – Etsy shop specializing in notebooks that look like Hogwarts textbooks.

Giant Paper Rose – Tutorial for making great-looking oversize paper roses. These would be fun as part of an Alice in Wonderland party.

Body Type – Book devoted to tattoos of words and letters. There’s also a second volume (Hat tip to Pensive Pumpkin)

Kate Mosse’s Top 10 Ghost Stories – Roundup of (mostly) short stories with a vintage-y ghost story vibe.

Bat Conservation International – Group devoted to preserving our favorite misunderstood animal.

The Literary Dalek Game – This isn’t really goth, but it amused me greatly. (And, of course, the same game could be played with words like “vampire” or “zombie” standing in for “Dalek.”)

Love Transfusion – Tutorial for making a liquid candy-filled blood bag. Technically for Valentine’s Day, but psssh…blood bags are for every day.

    We were watching MonsterQuest the other day and my sweet little 6-year-old daughter looks at me and in a dreamy voice says, “I love werewolves. And vampires. Oh, and bats!” She is awesome.

    That E.A. Pooh made me laugh out loud. I don’t even know why. I just cracked up.
    LOVE those ghost stories.
    And that Dalek game just sounds plain fun.
    P.S. I usually end up pinning at least half of your link dumps to my Pinterest board.

    I’m totally making those giant roses. A. Maize. Ing.

    Also, still can’t believe I saw something before you. I should buy a lottery ticket.
