I’ll be building three of these creepy little monsters- this one, another for a friend as a commission, and then a slightly larger rat-size one. This one is made of a full mouse skull, rat jaws, bird and mouse and rat bones, possum vertebrae, bone glue, and oil pigment.
It’s on a tiny coffin lid, and hangs on the wall, for all your horrorfully-decorated rooms. I think he would do best in a library, in a genetics lab, or in a tattoo and horror fanatic’s studio or office. But what do I know? It might be that he is happiest in your nightmares.
This one is for sale, the second has already sold.

It’s a commission for a friend; I was working on it before but they asked me to build a mount for them, and finishing this ended up fitting their concept perfectly. (I do have some things like this for sale, go here to buy those, or see them.)
All that’s left to do is seal it.
Pig skull, deer and coyote jaws, deer, dog, and badger bones- medical-grade gauze circa 1943, and oil paint.
I used bone glue, hot glue, twine, and adhesive plaster to construct it, and to make the joints solid.
It’s mounted on a square piece of maple plywood. It has taken me a few days of solid effort, and a few weeks of concept/articulation research, to make this one. Hawkins helped assort and assemble the structure – having his mind on the project was extremely helpful.
More images after the jump.

All of these are available now at my nature shop.
I’ve got a few more things that are articulated not quite ready for the public, but soon…
Also I just finally started assembling all the mummified creatures I’ve been acquiring over the last year or two. It’s amazing how many of these you can end up with if you know how to look.
(I wrote a three-part story about a few of these, which starts here, if you want to read it.)
See you guys friday, I hope.

Directly behind you, there is a blind spot. you can never see this blind spot even in a mirror (or three). It is the exact opposite of your most focused area of vision, directly behind you. At times of great stress or panic it may waver, it may travel. These are dangerous times for you.
In this spot is a shadow.
It is a small shadow and it moves with your focus- always leaping to the side like a floater. It contains your fears, all of them. It contains your nightmares, your death. During your life you will very nearly spot this shadow, many times. Every time but one you will look away in time.
Every small shadow you see could be someone’s blind spot. Only once will you see into your own, and you will not survive that vision.
Some believe that this shadow, that the blind spot is a protector of sorts. As long as you have looked from it and not noticed it, you are safe. People survive terrible things, because they did not see it. But others (possibly those who know of its existence) are more likely to see it even during calm moments.
The more you bring this blind spot to awareness, the more it will travel, waver. The more likely it becomes that you will see it inadvertently. The fear of it draws it closer to your area of focus, until soon enough you cannot avoid it at all, and look directly into it.
Some people die from choking on a maltball, from using a q-tip and getting an ear infection, from hitting their head in the shower. It’s too lat enow for you to forget about your blind spot, to avoid it entirely.
Whatever you do, don’t turn your head too quickly. It’s right behind you.

I read a lot of scary shit. I look at frightening pictures, watch horror movies, and sit up until the late hours, reading anything creepy I can find. The last two nights I’ve been re-reading “The Thing on the Doorstep”, then I headed over to a creepy story forum, and read about people’s experiences with monsters of various kinds, watched a bunch of scary videos, and basically gorged myself on fear.
So here I am, just got done chatting with someone, at home, alone until my room mate gets back from work. The dog is asleep, not afraid, so that’s somewhat reassuring. But at the same time the shadows in my room are shifty and not quite wholesome, and my brain won’t let me relax.
I love a good scare. It releases something for me, some primal anxiety that’s always there. I’m always waiting for the other shoe to drop, so when something actually does scare me, it’s a relief.
Just thought I’d share.
