Things that Slither...

Hello Lovelies!

Well, the weekly post is a bit late, because I spent Labor Day weekend camping with my Sweetie's family and I think I speak for everyone when I say we had a really good time. Perfect way to wind up the summer up here in Maine. We found all manner of creepy crawlers; caterpillars, slugs, a salamander, a turtle and even a one-eyed frog who I nicknamed One Eye Willy (of course). Take a peek:

This is one of our skull torches, the namesake of our camping area; Skull Island.

Good times.

You Kids have a couple more days to vote on my Skull Pop submission on Threadless. It only takes a moment, and I will be giving them away if I'm printed, so there's that...


Speaking of dark and dastardly illustrations, I have found an artist whose work makes me want to both laugh and scream. Noir Nouar's style is just tops in my opinion, the sweet 1940's looking people with these crazy mean and murderous scenes. I love it. Oh! And she has an Etsy shop here. Great stuff.


Have you guys heard of Nimit Malavia? Sounds like a Russian submarine, doesn't it? Well, his work does sneak up on you and blow your mind, so perhaps in a way, he is a Russian sub. Regardless, the pencil mixed with the paint in some cases, gives this work a moody feel and when you look through his portfolio, you get a sense of how diverse his talents truly are. Take a look, you'll be amazed.


Time for some strange news. This is almost unbelievable Folks. Did you read about the woman in Houston, Texas who got the world's largest breast implants? How big are they, you ask? How about 38KKK. And they take an entire gallon of silicone. Now come on people. She had to go to Brazil to get those since docs in the States apparently stop at 34FFF. Here is a direct quote from this lovely lady: "To me, big is beautiful. I don't think I have anything to worry about..." Wow.

Except maybe this.

Until next time: unpleasant dreams...

Lovely photos and I bet there were some really scary stories around that sizzling campfire! All Hallows Eve is almost here and I for one cannot wait, I'm decorating the yard already and filling my shop with ghoulish delights. Amazing info and I so enjoyed the read here today!
