Yoshitoshi Kanemaki – Creator of surreal, creepy, life-size sculptures.

3D Tattoos – A roundup of really neat trompe l’oeil tattoos.

Cthulhu Sculpt – Believe it or not, this isn’t a digital image; it’s an astoundingly detailed resin sculpture. Dang.

Pocket Watch Terrariums – Teensy plants housed in pocket watch cases. (via Cat)

Gender-Swapped Animated Characters – Famous animated characters with their genders switched. I like Cruella de Vil and Jack & Sally in particular.

Edward Gorey Documentary Kickstarter – The base has been funded, but there’s still time to kick in for some of the stretch goals.

Make Your Own Wax Seal – Tutorial for making custom wax seals from metal buttons.

Classic Children’s Books Written for Adults – An amusing roundup of imaginary pages.

Plushie Butcher Shop – Art installation depicting a butcher shop where the meat is replaced by stuffed animals. The “sausages” made of foam stuffing are particularly clever.

Coloring Book Corruptions – NSFW. A site devoted to “altered” pages from coloring books. Guest contributions are welcomed.

    Imma make a wax seal and use it on the most mundane things, like my water bill.

    I am very proud to be an early supporter of the Gorey Kickstarter. I’ve been planning on visiting his house in Cape Cod for a while.

    OMEGs, the terraria!!

    Am loving gender-swapped Esmerelda & Hades! Also, why is Maleficent a stripper…?

    Oooh, looking forward to the Gorey thing! I first became a fan because my mother was a fan of Mystery! on PBS. Now, of course, I regularly attend the Edwardian Ball, so…yeah, a fan.

    I love the wax seal from buttons idea, but I really doubt the feasibility of it. Most buttons—even metal ones—are rounded and that just won’t work for wax seals. They really need to be flat. I do, however, really love the idea of using an old chess piece to make it. (Also, I’m judging the person who made that tutorial for the quality of the wax used in that last photo. ::shudder::)

    Ahahaha, poor Harold.

    Oh man, those vacuum-sealed cuts of plushie.
