The Art of Darkness

Killer Link Dumps From Outer Space

March 3rd, 2017 by Cobwebs

The Widow’s Jar – Amazingly detailed automaton by Thomas Kuntz. Slightly NSFW. (via Poopisan)

I Love Bat Cookies – Adorable bat-themed cookies, with some proceeds going to help bat conservation.

Vlad – This made me laugh entirely too hard.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Merchandise – To celebrate the upcoming 20th(!!!) anniversary of Buffy, YahooTV has a look at some clothing and other merch. (Oh god I feel old.)

Aethiocarenus burmanicus – This Cretaceous insect is described by Gizmodo as “Quite Possibly the Ugliest Bug Ever Found Trapped in Amber.” I think it looks more like it was drawn by Edward Gorey.

The Tea Dragon Society – A sweet, serene little webcomic about tea dragons. (Which makes sense in context I swear.)

Each night Father fills me with dread – I don’t know where this poem/illustration is from, but I dig it.

Felted Anatomical Specimens – Artist Lana Crooks makes amazingly-detailed anatomical specimens out of silk and wool. (Hat tip to pdq)

Pojo’s Pure Vermont Soap – They sell “normal” soap like goat milk and honey…and also Garlic & Holy Water Vampire Repelling Soap, Silver & Holy Water Werewolf Repelling Soap, zombie-themed SOAPOCALYPSE and some other weird stuff. The vampire soap comes with a money-back guarantee if you’re attacked by a vampire, so there’s that.

The Big Scary Show – Podcast for fans of the “big three ‘H’s (Halloween, Horror, and Haunted Houses).”

    I’m not 100% sure, but the ‘Each night Father fills me with dread’ looks similar to some other illustrations I’ve seen from either Edward Gorey’s “Amphigorey” or “The Listing Attic”.

    Just wait till Vlad learns to roast them on a stick. That will change history

  4. Devries Says:

    Zombie scented Soap and Bath Salts are NOT a good combination
    Especially in Florida

    I found and interesting and rather cute vicious Cretaceous creature, neither shrimp nor insect. It had 4 segmented eyes and no mouth parts,. It fed by viciously impailing its prey with sharp harpoom like structures in all eights of it’s legs and pumping in a highly nerotoxic venum laced with strong digestine enzimes and sucking out the liquified tissues through it’s feet. It was a sea dwelling ambush killer. Ill see if i can find it
