This homemade parasite specimen is one of the finest examples of DIY prop crafting I’ve ever seen.
The creator gives a small comment:
This was sculpted out of polymer clay and painted with acrylics. The detail work was done with dental tools and some custom texture stamps. I added the gore just to dress up the photos a bit. It’s essentially lumpy gravy- cornstarch and water mixed with some food coloring and heated up until it gels.
I received a text message from one of my dearest friends, showcasing this fantastic Alligator Condiment Set.
Does anyone actually own this set?
My favorite time of year is rapidly approaching! Halloween items are starting to pop up, and I want to share my two favorites from Grandin Road this year.
The caged skeleton crow is a fantastic, unique decoration, don’t you think?
Next, “Disfigured Duck.” I’m entertained by this random choice of undead water fowl, AND its odd, almost inappropriate title.
I encourage you all to share your favorite Halloween links with me (I’ll credit you, naturally)!
Marcus DeSieno has created a series of what I like to call Parasite Portraits. It is tempting to anthropomorphize these hungry little creatures, isn’t it?
About the artist: Marcus DeSieno is a native of Albany, New York and is currently pursuing his MFA in Studio Art from the University of South Florida, expected to graduate in 2015. His work is concerned with the history of science and exploration in relation to the history of photography, often employing the use of antiquated photographic process combined with contemporary technologies to engage in a critical dialog about the evolution of photographic technology and the ontological nature of the photographic medium itself.
