Adding Monsters to Thrift Store Paintings at TwistedSifter

Art work by  CHRIS MCMAHON

A Fortean and creative idea; taking old paintings one finds at Goodwills and the like and painting in monsters. Something I will definitely play with! Adding Monsters to Thrift Store Paintings from TwistedSifter

Trickster's Realm: Urban Anomalous Art

My current column at Tim Binnall's site:Urban Anomalous Art

Two stories about mermaids -- more accurately, humans who have chosen mimicking mermaid-ism as a "life style" choice --. caught my eye. One story concerns Eric Ducharme of Florida. Ducharme made the UK news. Mr. Ducharme :

"...eats, sleeps and breathes mermaids while physically looking and acting like one as often as time allows.

'It's a lifestyle. It's a path in life that I have chosen,' says the 22-year-old from Crystal River who's one of the latest characters to appear on TLC's My Crazy Obsession."

new blog: fragments, found

New blog:fragments, found. While my intent isn't of the paranormal UFO Fortean bent -- strictly literal/poetic -- you never know what esoteric things may show up. I'd like to do a collaboration thing at some point (possibly) but for now, it's just me-self.

Optical Design

Like this technique. I've played around with line designs and some were quite beautiful, but I've so far kept them black and white. This color technique gives a lot more to play with. While the image shown at this link: Art 1. Optical Design - StumbleUpon is a design, I can just picture this simple use of color, shading and lines used in alien type illustrations :)

Huge fan of Mothra! (And in a round about way/plug, Mothman, which is another topic. But here's a link to my Mothman blog, just because.)

Green Man, by Iggy

Green Man

The Green Man is of course an illusion, but when viewed from the right angle at the right distance from the Green Anomaly nebula in the Fourth Quadrant's White Zone, well, it really does look like a little green guy is standing there. Can't make it to the area? Here you go. Enjoy.
Secret Society, by Iggy

Secret Society

Wear the mark of your own Mysterious Society and enjoy the strange and wary thoughts and glances it creates in those around you. Only you will know...the truth.
