The Art of Darkness

The Link Dump on the Floss

August 31st, 2012 by Cobwebs

From A to B and through to Z – These splendidly grotesque illustrations would look magnificent framed.

Cloth-Covered Shoes DIY – The tutorial uses houndstooth, but obviously you could replace it with a creepy pattern of your choice.

The 8 Best “Hail Sagan” Designs – I was previously unaware of this particular meme, but it definitely hits the sweet spot between “geek” and “goth.”

Lace Earring Frame – Simple, lovely idea.

Punk Disney Princesses – A roundup.

Jack Skellington Crochet Pattern – Cute, free pattern.

Skull Door Knocker – Lovely polished brass knocker. (Hat tip to WitchArachne)

Sketches of Biological Mythology – Lovely drawings of unicorns and dragons done in the style of old biology texts.

Virtual Garage Sale – Trystan Bass is selling off period costumes/accessories and costuming books to raise money for an SCA event. She’s got some great stuff, very reasonably priced.

Beck Hansen’s Song Reader – Beck has one-upped those bands who are releasing vinyl-only albums by releasing his album as sheet music and telling fans to record it themselves. (Hat tip to Sisifo)

    Oh, damn. I just finished sculpting a creepy devil face in a pentagram. I so wish I’d used Sagan. Of course, I’m a crappy sculptor, so I can say it’s Sagan, and everyone will smile and nod.

    Gah! I’m in love with the spider-playing-poker-and-drinking-simultaneously and the worshippers!

    “Hail Sagan!” Wow. That explains a lot about my parents…

    Punk Disney Princesses are almost as awesome as hipster Ariel!

    OMEGs, I have requested an item and hope I get it!! (Not telling you which until I do.)

    Also Beck: lulz.

    Is it just me, or does the Beast in his human form look hot with gauged ears…?
    Anyway, punky Pocahontas is my favorite. And those sketches are ridiculously awesome. I want to frame those suckers. Hard.
