Yesterday evening I walked over to [livejournal.com profile] hardcore_genki's to hand over my wedding present.
A while ago, @raliel posted a photo of a glass engraved with a Lovecraftian monster on twitter and wedding bells started ringing in my head so I asked him if he would do a set for me and he did. They look like this:

  

Bigger and more )

You can find this fine artist on twitter or deviantART. Some of you know him, he was the puppeteer at the Evelyn Evelyn gigs.
They were really tricky to photograph and I realised that polishing glass so that no smears show up at all when taking pictures (even if they look fine when held against the light) was hard and I didn't quite manage. I was even wearing gloves when setting up the shots...

Hurrah!

A while ago, I took part in an international art collaboration project orginally instigated by [livejournal.com profile] kylecassidy in which two people were randomly chosen to come up with something together.
My match was [livejournal.com profile] roguish_ink. As we were separated by various oceans and miles of countryside, we split it into two parts. I took a series of photos of random objects, shapes and textures around the house and sent them over. She then printed some of those photos, arranged them in a collage, traced the shapes she was interested in and used those as base of a painting

As if that wasn't cool enough, when City Kitties in Philly announced their annual art auction, [livejournal.com profile] roguish_ink asked me if I was OK with her donating the piece for the cause and of course I was.
The auction took place this weekend and the piece sold! :D

The art collaboration project lives on in the [livejournal.com profile] 2xcreative community.

[livejournal.com profile] motodraconis recently found an old and wonderfully illustrated book called The Public and Private Life of Animals. Click the link to her flickr set with a selection of photos of some of the pages (all the photos should be viewable large). Some of those could well have inspired Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. Very impressive.
