XXVII. Hodgepodge

Some miscellaneous things to share today. I'll start with a few pieces of inspiring artwork:

by Francesco Balsamo

I love this painting, even more because it bears an eerie resemblance to my Custodian spirits.

If you're a fan of Beksinski, YouTube channel Droog's Mixes has this video which combines Beksinski's amazing artwork with a very appropriate soundtrack of dark ambient music. And there's an entire hour of it. Delicious.


If you're on Facebook and like macabre and beautifully grotesque art, you'll enjoy the page The Macabre And the Beautifully Grotesque. It collects tons and tons of freaky artwork.

The other day I chanced upon an interesting four-part video series Everything is a Remix. It discusses how ideas evolve, the derivative nature of creativity, and the problems which occur when the law system decides to treat ideas as property. You can watch the entire series here: Link.

I knocked together this bell some time ago, but never posted it here. People use it to proclaim an emergency, to summon meetings and similar. It comes from VC Corpse Cart kit.


I bought another Citadel Wood kit. I'll use the forest's base to make a small graveyard, and the trees will stand on their own. I also have a half- made mushroom ring on a CD base. Can't wait to go back to terrain-making in November. : )

    1. That artist you linked to has some really unnerving artwork. I'm just going through his blog and I love what I'm seeing. So, thank you for sharing, too. :D

  2. How is it possible that I have never heard of Beksinski?! His works are very amazing! Light and shadow effects are supreme and emotion is very strong - nearly overwhelming.

    Still 15 min left of Droog's Mixes's video so going back to Youtube!

    Thanks!

    1. Indeed. Beksinski's paintings are captivating, and the atmosphere in them makes you feel uneasy. It's brilliant. :)
