Ravendark Creations is the work of Arend Smith. Here you will find amazing one of a kind, quirky creations such as:

Cyclops Squirrel

The Cheshire Cat (I think this is a model kit design, actually. I’d love to make this!)

Most sculptures are polyclay (often inspired by his wife’s art!), but some are available as resin kits so you can bring these fine creatures into your own home and take part in the creation process.

Okay, immediate bonus points for the name. Quantum Creative Glass has some amazing glass blown creatures.

The cephalopods are fabulous…

And you’ll find some intriguing land-roaming species, too.

How to Talk to Your Cat About…

Posted in Books, cats, creatures, humor with tags , , , on June 25, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

With two new kittens in the house (who have completely dominated my heart and attention since they arrived 4 days ago), I realized it’s never too early to educate them on important topics.

This collar…perfection.

Yes, these are real pamphlets, available here.

This post is dedicated to my boy Dr. Morbius (after Forbidden Planet, as opposed to Marvel comics Dr. Michael Morbius…I can’t believe I’m geeky enough to specify that distinction) and my little lady, Ms. Nimbus.

Lest you had any doubt that I’m totally out of my mind, their FULL names are Dr. Morbius Doodles and Ms. Nimbus Biscuit. All I can say is…you’d get it if you met them. I promise.

THE Cat Dress

Why do I call it THE Cat Dress? Because once you’ve seen it, all other cat dresses don’t seem quite catty enough.

Some fine craftsmanship, eh? This stunner debuted at CatCon LA (Yes, that’s a thing. No, I haven’t gone. Yes, I absolutely would.)

5 Metres 80

I received a link to this short film from a loved one last night with the introduction: I know you’re not a huge fan of CGI, but seeing this I think you’ll agree that it’s been put to some pretty good use.

Oh, INDEED IT HAS! I’m generally opposed to elaborate CGI that is used as a crutch to compensate for lackluster storytelling and character development.

High-diving giraffes, however, are clearly what this medium was truly invented for.

Can we just pretend this is exactly what happens in public swimming pools, after hours?

Thank you, GD!

These gorgeous creatures are made of old Nintendo consoles! (Hopefully broken ones…I love the idea of re-purposing).

WHY don’t more buses look like this? It’s such a missed opportunity NOT to paint giant teeth on all of them.

I’m sure this valid excuse resulted in instant exoneration:

Yeah, but the Wild Germ has anger issues…

One must look at the tagline and consider whether it is really the kind of attention ones wants.

A very touching piece of street art.

The sweet, pink title image is excellent with a cat that looks exceedingly unamused.
