The Art of Darkness

The Link Dump of Heaven

August 4th, 2017 by Cobwebs

Scary Stories Paperback Box Set – The most terrifying part of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and its sequels wasn’t the stories, it was the creepy-ass artwork by Stephen Gammell. A new boxed set featuring the original art has just been released.

Goth Court – A life-action party game about “eldritch justice in a small claims court that settles petty disputes between goths and norms.” (Hat tip to Bruno)

Imaginary Voyages of Edgar Allan Poe – Kickstarter for an interesting-sounding graphic novel.

Why Harry Potter should have carried an M1911 – This Reddit comment is peak Redneck American, but “Dirty Harry” Potter would be a fun action movie.

Packing – Odd, evocative, melancholy little short story.

Monks Knitting Pattern – Tewkesbury Abbey has a free knitting pattern for mini-monks. You can see some examples in their Twitter feed.

So this conversation happened between a couple of writers I like on Twitter – This is what the internet was made for. (via Shellhawk)

Anatomy of Animals – Kickstarter for a collection of “animal anatomy” ‘toons from the webcomic Sheldon. I cannot agree with their depiction of tardigrades.

Meeping Angel – You know that Weeping Angel/Beaker mashup? Somebody did a cosplay version.

Riker Creatures – Adorable furry sculptures of wildlife. The latest set–sadly sold out–were baby fruit bats: Scruffs, Pekoe, and Loki. Hopefully the artist will make more soon. (Hat tip to WitchArachne)

Frog of Muppet News. After interviewing Professor Hunneydue they notice a strange noise comming from inside… YepyepyepyepUhhuhyepyepyepyep…
