Happy 100th comic day to me! hOO!
I wish I could make awesome announcements and such, but I’m not ready yet. I do have a few things bubbling in the cauldron that will lead to some happy changes around here in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
There are no great adventures to speak of this week. My head’s been in graphic design projects and super secret GingerDead stuffs. I did have some inspiring internet encounters last night, so how about I share with you my favorite find?
The website is aptly titled Dark Creations and features gothic, death and horror themed dolls and mannequins by internationally acclaimed artist D. L. Marian. The work is as exquisitely beautiful as it is creepy. Marian transforms antique and limited edition dolls, some broken and homeless and lost, into haunting works of art. It’s hard to say whether Marian breathes life or death into them since each piece seems to embody both. I think that’s what makes them so wonderful.
I’m only going to share two images here. You truly must go to the site and and give each gallery a gander. Oh, and while you’re there if you are interested in post mortem photographs…remember that scene in The Others when she finds the book of ‘sleeping’ people? Yeah, those. Marian has a small collection on display. Of small children. I am hunting the site now in case that interests you. (It fascinated the hell out of me.) But, now I can’t find it. Anyway, here’s just two of my many favorite pieces.
Teensie the Torso – D.L Marian
You can read Teensie’s story or purchase her here.
Peek-a-Boo – D.L. Marian
More images and to purchase Peek-a-Boo – here.
There are so many amazing ones, I simply can’t post them all. Especially, since I didn’t ask if it was okay to post those two. O.o I’m off to email D.L. Marian now and make sure it’s cool…
Have a great week. Thanks for sticking with me through 100 comics.
