These were some projects I did in my art course!! The top one is so beautifully named “line pattern sampler” by my professor, but I got to name the bottom one >:)
Can you tell I love skeletons
“I know my path will cross with Brokenstar again. And one day I will do something to stop this tide of fire and blood that he has unleashed on the forest.”
Stare hard enough at the fabric of night,
and if you’re predisposed to dark—let’s say
the window you’ve picked is a black
postage stamp you spend hours at,
sleepless, drinking gin after the I Love
Lucy reruns have gone off—stare
like your eyes have force, and behind
any night’s taut scrim will come the forms
you expect pressing from the other side.
For you: a field of skulls, angled jaws
and eye-sockets, a zillion scooped-out crania.
They’re plain once you think to look.
You know such fields exist, for criminals
roam your very block, and even history lists
monsters like Adolf and Uncle Joe
who stalk the earth’s orb, plus minor baby-eaters
unidentified, probably in your very midst. Perhaps
that disgruntled mail clerk from your job
has already scratched your name on a bullet—that’s him
rustling in the azaleas. You caress the thought,
for it proves there’s no better spot for you
than here, your square-yard of chintz sofa, hearing
the bad news piped steady from your head. The night
is black. You stare and furious stare,
confident there are no gods out there. In this way,
you’re blind to your own eye’s intricate machine
and to the light it sees by, to the luck of birth and all
your remembered loves. If the skulls are there—
let’s say they do press toward you
against night’s scrim—could they not stare
with slack jawed envy at the fine flesh
that covers your scalp, the numbered hairs,
at the force your hands hold?

@beardconnoisseur‘s Warden Ellis did not want to convert his fellow wardens into Abominations at the fortress of Adamant, but they told him it was a necessary evil, and he trusted them.
Sorry for the long absence guys, got sick, and then got a big freelance gig right when I was buying a new apartment. Still working on stuff, been posting wips to twitter since it’s a little easier than posting wips here on tumblr, though I’m gonna work on getting them both running at the same time. It’s been such a long two weeks this new year, but there’s moving and shaking at least!
Tarot commissions are open! Fill out this form if you’d like a tarot card! There’s a wait list right now (1/14/2021) as I catch up on the commissions I fell behind on while sick, but they are open.
My layaway item came today. Didn’t think I’d ever have one of these just because they’re tricky to legally own. I have paperwork on her though proving she pre-dates the Marine Mammal Protection Act making her a seldom seen legal sea lion skull.
In order for these items to be available for sale they must have provenance proving a pre 1972 origin (shes 1956)
Some marine mammal parts may be owned by Alaskan natives, who are also allowed to sell crafts made of marine mammal (but not raw material) with a silver hand permit proving their origin. These are the only two ways I know of where its legal to purchase something like this in the US.
