I love Caitlin McCormack’s crocheted creatures!
Some appear to me made from vintage doilies. Such an unlikely craft material for this subject matter, and I think it works.
Alexey Kashpersky creates hyper-realistic 3D cadaver images using ZBrush, and the detail is extraordinary.
Alexey has an impressive background. Earning a Master of Visual and Decorative and Applied Arts while in the Ukraine, he went on to create a large volume of 3D work for the television and print industries. Later on he settled down to specialize in scientific visualization.
Soon, I am debuting a Kickstarter campaign very dear to my heart. No public spoilers quite yet, except for the fact that it’s a gorgeous photography book commemorating the triumph of the human spirit, via surrealist art and narrative.
JOIN MY BRAINSTORMING TEAM!
What does this mean? You’ll get the first look at everything, before it’s posted anywhere, including Kickstarter…and some nifty little perks as the project goes forward. And candy. Definitely candy.
Lengthy feedback is never required, so this is not a time commitment. You don’t even have to say anything at all unless you feel moved to comment.
Leave a comment or contact me to get our little focus group going!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
For those of marvelously morbid persuasion (who have some money to burn), Vegan Treats has a limited edition box of chocolates just in time for Valentine’s Day entitled Fatally Yours.
Packaged appropriately in a custom black heart with gold-embossed “Fatally Yours”. Each chocolate is delicately handmade and finished in gold leaf before being placed in a custom made insert tray for extra protection before dissecting.
Each box contains:
White Chocolate Bones and Skeletal Hands
Blood-red Velvet White Chocolate Candies
Hazelnut Praline Tiramisu
Caramel-filled (and anatomically correct) Hearts
Peanut Butter Cup Coffins
Malt-filled Swiss Chocolate
Passion-less Fruit with Fragrant Vanilla Bean
Jumbo Speculoos skull
Jumbo Peanut Butter Cup Skull
Cookies and Cream White Chocolate Torso
This chocolate is very well crafted; quite lovely to look at indeed. The $87 price tag makes it a pretty hefty splurge for chocolate, but if anyone has sampled the fine products of Vegan Treats, let me know your review.
I have a shirt with this design, but I absolutely love this Fibonacci Sequence necklace from Boutique Academia (wow, do I want this!).
