1887 Ladies – Lovely pinup-style drawings of fictional superheroines reimagined in a steampunk past.

Skeleton Foot – Fantastic trompe-l’oeil tattoo.

Grandpa Won’t Wake Up – Amusing parody of a Little Golden Book.

Map of the Dead – Enter your address (U.S. loads by default, but it apparently works internationally) and the site displays nearby locations that will help you survive a zombie apocalypse: Hardware stores, gas stations, hospitals, and so forth.

Caught in the Web – Macrophotograph gallery of spiders and their prey.

Sophistique Noir – “Dark Fashion for the Mature.” Great fashion suggestions for the over-30 set (or for the under-30s who want to look profesionally goth for job interviews and suchlike).

Adam Hosmer – Artist whose digitally-altered photographs are strange and unsettling.
