A devil Horse cake dripping in rum. The beast had Kraken Rum pouring from it’s nose into a font and was cut open to reveal red velvet insides. Created by Eddie & Rich at The Tattooed Bakers, taking over 200 hours to complete.
This will be my wedding cake someday.
FRICK YES I remember this thing. October seems a good month to reblog.
Some concepts for two characters of mine: blink and belly!!! these aren’t their final colors.
Blink has eyes but is often not aware of its own surroundings - it finds it difficult to fully pay attention to the world around it. Belly can change the position, sharpness, and number of its teeth and it clicks them together in order to echolocate. It’s able to be more attentive and aware than blink.
i wanted to show them exploring each other, since they’d never experienced something like the other before meeting. belly had never encountered eyeballs and was very interested in them when feeling blink’s face, but you can’t really touch someone’s eyeballs with your feet…. and blink was fascinated with belly’s teeth and wanted to know how they were attached. it’s no great loss to belly to lose a tooth.
a new zine called shitty horoscopes that i’ll be premiering this year at the Toronto Queer Zine Fair, among other things! hopefully i’ll make volumes available for online purchase soon. credit where credit is due: this was inspired by the huge number of made-up horoscopes floating around tumblr lately, and angry-poems.
yup, the Libra one is pretty accurate
I don’t give a rat’s ass about astrology or put any faith in it, but I really, really like these. Apart from the rocking illustrations, I love short, surreal, sort of fatalistic poetry (see WTNV twitter and Sexts from the Void) so.
One of my supervisors is… a nice guy, but he likes to come out of his office when I’m in the middle of doing paperwork and just sit at the desk, staring at me, inviting conversation. Which would be fine, but he’s very, very quiet and never initiates anything, he just waits for me to either say something or just awkwardly ignore him, which I don’t want to do because it’s rude. I am happy to talk to you when I’m not busy, but there’s only so much small talk I can pull out of thin air, dude, you gotta give me some feedback. It’s the most stilted, uncomfortable thing in the world.
I just spent 6+ hours doing this… And it’s still really unrefined, choppy animation, but I haven’t animated a sprite in over a year and a half, and it was fun. LOL
I don’t know why I torture my own characters.
Poor Dan. I actually forgot what his name was, “Dullahan Dan” kind of stuck.
He’ll never get his head at this point…
Edit: Added in the slight turnaround sheet.
Can I just tell you how great you are. I have no concept of animation so it’s possible that I’m also very easily impressed, but I’m just so fucking amused that this dumb character I gave you input on while you were cooking him up is rendered out and in motion and it’s hilarious. I love his outfit, and his expressions, and the little spittle or neck juice or whatever that flies away as he boots his own head.
While Caliban laughs just off-camera.
Seriously I love this character I am so glad you ruined him ROFL.
