Worm BookOn a dungeon walk through swamps and bunkers is where I found the book.Worm Book by SittingBuddha
Swarmed with a sea of rats that part under my majestic feet the book was befouled with a sickness of trapped worms and oily tentacle. Most sticky it was, written in italics by the black scholars of southern Spain.
I found it in my academic travels and search of the occult I so stomached for in my youth. Now in my anti Faustian ways I use it as a weapon to ruin my enemies in a most unpleasant way. Well, I say my enemies. Really people, who I find, well, just disagreeable.
So in my gothic dwelling I sit in my dark room - the walls painted blood red in a frenzied thickness with red oils and the blood of pigeons and doves – whatever; I recline on a chair of grandeur upholstered in worn crimson velvet, the floor blackened with dust and ash. This is my library and I decorate it as I see fit.
The air is dense and as atmospheric as the heavy books of my life. The roo
Tim's StoryMy name is Timothy. I am now 26 and this is my story.Tim's Story by SittingBuddha
I write in the hope that it will reach my mother, Elizabeth who I have missed so much. I write this as a warning to never enter the black house on the hill. Heed this warning and tell my love of my dear mother - may this paper blow on a hopeful wind and reach the place that I have now lost.
It all began walking home unaware of the bizarre happenings at were about to unfold. So I’ll tell it like it was and will recall it with acute memory.
I was walking home from school and chucked some pebbles at the headmaster’s window, then legged it down the cobbles in my shoes that weighed a ton with my wire laces dangerously flaring, speaking of the threat of a broken face. I was grinning to myself as I got away with it, imagining the headmaster in a right old fizzle.
My best friend Jack wasn’t at school today. Probably skipping it again. Proper rascals we are together, causing
R.I.P. H.R.Giger (1940-2014)I was shocked to learn today that Giger passed away just a day ago as a result of a fall. Most of you probably know that H.R. Giger is one of my favorite artists and a major influence on my work. (for those who don't know, check this out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.R._Giger and then watch Alien )R.I.P. H.R.Giger (1940-2014) by leothefox
I discovered Giger when I was 12 when I found his book Biomechanics in the Ventura, CA Barnes and Noble and was blown away by his universe of weird detail. I spent years after that collecting his books and aspiring to become him.
For a long time I was a huge fanboy and wanted to meet him, now I never will
His influence can be seen all over DA, for example in these

|WELCOME TO EMPTYHEADS!|
It is the philosophy of this club that emptyness made by the numb and negative part of our art (sometimes left on purpose) is meant to be filled with ideas. Which flow upon the paper like the mediums we choose.
Empty heads is about collaboration. Getting to know your fellow surrealists and observe their style and nature of their art.
We hope that by collaborating we can build a tightly knit community of surrealists who will continue to collaborate with each other inspire each other and support one another artistically.
WAYS OF THE GAME
The original recipe:
One artist creates a head...Or possibly a foreground, which then passed (digitally or mail) to another deviant to create a body for the being or surreal object or background.
The original said something about humorous but since the nature of the artwork created resulted in mixed results of mood. I will not require it.
Three musketeer’s version:
One person does a head (foreground) one person does a background and one person provides details/manipulation/colors.
Not so sure on this one.
Or. You can dived a single "canvas" into three sections evenly and create a multi-person exquisite corpse or work freely over the sections to create a montage of style.
One person chooses a corner and works on it. Another person chooses an opposing corner and works on it ECT. So the piece blends but is made up of four evenly distributed sections.
All four work on a variety of details on the piece.
Or four people do minimal drawing as not to crowd the drawing each person does an automatic drawing based on paranoid-critical theory. Where they draw what they see with little intervention, working with and into the pieces that the others drew.
With each person the canvas is rotated. So instead of working off of sections they work on the whole canvas but a different perspective. Much like how my own four ways are created.
This would cause the most skill in making sure everyone used the same medium but also provide some serious collaboration eyes.
So what do you say!
Let's get collaborating folks!
