The Art of Darkness

Another Darn Week of Link Dumps: Day 4

August 28th, 2014 by Cobwebs

Supermanatee (and Friends) – Artist Joel Harris has a whole series of superhero-costumed manatees, and they are all blorpily marvelous. They’re available as prints and T-shirts.

Know Your Double – A field guide to doppelgangers.

Tattoos Inspired by Books from Childhood – I particularly like the Gorey ones.

Harry Potter Wedding Cake – This is just astonishingly detailed.

Hardback Reading Lamp – DIY project for turning a hardback book into a bedside reading lamp. If you’ve loved a book to death until its pages are falling out, this is a neat way to breathe new life into the cover.

Andreas Scheiger – Sculptor whose series Evolution of Type includes several “dissected” letters (plus a few more that look like fossils).

Unlock Some Inspiration – Decorating ideas using antique keys.

The Perfect Cake for Your Last Day of Work – The next time there’s a going-away party I may have to try this.

Make Your Own Hippogriff – Sadly, this tutorial uses fabric rather than alchemy.

DrFaustusAU – This artist’s faux-Seussian renderings of movies like Silence of the Lambs and The Evil Dead are splendid.

    I was at a costume convention the other day and someone was selling old books. I’m still kicking myself for not getting one for my gun-cleaning kit.

    The house I lived in in Germany had skeleton keys for every door. Of course, they were keyed to each door, but they looked like “antique” keys. If you’re ever in Germany, you can probably pick up a million “antique” skeleton-looking keys just from a locksmith.

    Really liked If I Were Dovahkiin but then I saw Yurtle the Turtle’s Habitat was Destroyed by Global Warming :(
