EGO

Posted in art, monsters with tags , on August 30, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I came across art by EGO with no website link, and it’s hard to find a comprehensive source of work as it seems to be spread all over between tattoo sites, blogs, etc. But…I like it! So here are some examples.

An internet search for EGO obviously produces thousands of completely irrelevant results (though why not run with the inadvertent psychological education?). Love his skeleton and monster work.

Mythic Articulations creates made to order 3D printed skeleton models of mythological cryptids. Even the packaging is brilliant.

Tasty Soil

Posted in art, monsters with tags , on August 16, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I can always count on Monster Brains to showcase great stuff. Tasty Soil is the wild, weird and wonderful artwork of Chris Pottinger. Are you ready for some awesome monsters that look like rampant doodles came to life on the page?

Molting Cartilage Blister

Look at them! Globs of overflowing viscera and teeth, mysterious piles of organs and glands, too many eyeballs!

I’m definitely going to print out some of the black and white monsters to color…because I’m not ashamed to act like a five year old. Every adult should pull out some markers and color a monster, now and then.

Since I’m still battling some serious health issues, I think I’m going to use these monsters as my visual adjectives on especially tough days.

Example:
“How are you feeling, Dana?”
“Like this:”

“…thanks for asking!”

Desktop Goodies 7/25

I apologize if I’ve posted some of these before. I forgot to clean out my “desktop goodies” folder and I may be repeating myself (though I don’t think so). Either way, these treasures are worth seeing.

This is real!

I’ve seen fortune teller automata before, but never Puss in Boots. He sees straight into your soul. It burns.

Take a moment to really absorb and digest this book. This may be one of the most horribly absurd things I’ve seen, and that’s saying something.

I love this headstone. If I am interred, I hope I get a lot of reading done down there.

You Might Be a Monster

Posted in Books, illustration, monsters with tags , , on June 21, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Attaboy has written a book I feel is worth having for the title alone.

Doesn’t this sound wonderful? Look at the contents!

I do not have kids, but would be excited to give this to any little ones in my life. Honorary nieces, nephews and godchildren…your Fairy Gothmother has something for you…

Aris Kolokontes has a gallery of wonderful monster sculptures and busts. Look at the texture he achieves here!

Pumpkinrot recently featured the work of Matthew J. Levin.

My favorite piece in his portfolio:

His strange creatures twist and turn at unnatural angles…

Most of them seem as if they were caught in the middle of movements.

Monsters await you.
