The Art of Darkness

Zounds! It’s Another Week of Link Dumps: Day 3

August 12th, 2015 by Cobwebs

Watermelon Shark – Instructions for carving a “shark” from a watermelon, who helpfully holds fruit salad in his maw.

Spider Cup – Teacup with a ceramic spider in the bottom.

Mexrrissey – Tribute band which performs songs by Morrissey and The Smiths in Spanish with a mariachi twist. Here’s Everyday Like Sunday on Soundcloud.

Intimate Vestiges – Art installation featuring creepily anatomical design elements, like a throw rug composed of fingers. I sort of dig the eyeball curtains, though. (via Rattus)

With Sonar-Reflecting Leaves, Plant Lures Bats to Poo in it – This is…kinda what it says on the tin. A pitcher plant has evolved to encourage bats to roost in it rather than to eat insects directly.

A Brief Disquisition on the Existence of Butt-cooties – “Gentlemen, kindly avert your eyes.”

Catastrophe – Lovely ring composed of pearls carved into the shape of skulls.

Elder Scrolls Basement – Gorgeous rec-room makeover.

Final Notes – Set of blank notebooks inscribed, “My Legacy,” “Epitaph Ideas,” and “Deathbed Requests.”

The Avengers 2015 – deviantART member theDURRRRIAN did a wonderful series of illustrations which reimagine the characters from Avengers: Age of Ultron as dark fantasy warriors.

    Thanks soooo much for another week of link dumps..i love it! And thanks for the Mexrrissey! I’m at work so can’t listen but cant wait til i get home. I’m a HUGE Smiths/Morrissey fan. There is also another band from San Diego called Metalachi. Metal/Mariachi put together. They play a lot in this area but don’t really take themselves too seriously so you shouldn’t either, just laugh and listen.
