Weekly Website Wednesday: Marc Giai-Miniet

Marc Giai-Miniet is a French guy who makes creepy art. I especially like his spooky dioramas. A lot of his work seems to explore how we ignore the horrors of everyday life while obsessing over the mundane.

I’d like to tell you more about him, but my french is really rusty.

Some of his work is a little gory, so NSFW and whatnot.

Weekly Website Wednesday: Folk Funeria

This weeks website is Folk Funeraria, which features grave decorations from the American South, many of which are homemade. Yeah, I think that the space and resources taken up by graveyards would be better used for public parks -ask me sometime about my objections to the fact that the greenest places in Tucson are the graveyards- but I still find memorial art to be very interesting.

Weekly Website Wednesday: Epic Exquisite Corpse

epic exquisite corpse link pictureAn exquisite corpse is a collaborative drawing, where one person starts a drawing and then folds over the paper so only a small, unrecognizable portion of the drawing can be seen, then another person continues the drawing from that portion, folds over the paper and passes it on to another person, and so on and so on, until there isn’t any paper left to be drawn on. The paper is then unfolded to reveal a freaky, mutant drawing that is a combination of everyone’s styles.

Epic Exquisite Corpse is a huge version of this. It’s already huge with over 73,000 sections already drawn, but that’s out of a total of a million possible sections, so it’s going to be insane when it’s finished.

Anyhoo, go draw your own section. IT’S FUN!
