Who knew that a process used in science is actually an art technique?

They seriously present this as something new or unique? Shiat, I did this as an undergrad, using techniques that have been around for at LEAST several decades.

Color me unimpressed.

It takes him 5 months to do a piece. So he probably did a bit more work and put a bit more effort into it then you. Using a technique from another field is innovative... bet you could make a lot of money doing that, if you are so proficient as to be able to reproduce his work in a day or a week.

Nope. Same thing.

The amount of time it takes depends on the size of the creature, and is just a matter of waiting for each step to progress to the point that you can move on to the next one. Sure, if you miscalculate, in the digestion step, you end up with creature soup, but that's it.

Was it him what took the kraken, or did he just find it gone?

Subby Subby Subby," whispered Goss. "Keep those little bells on your slippers as quiet as you can. Sparklehorse and Starpink have managed to creep out of Apple Palace past all the monkeyfish, but if we're silent as tiny goblins we can surprise them and then all frolic off together in the Meadow of Happy Kites."

Agreed - for one thing, it's been a while, and for another - some things are worth a second look.

nulluspixiusdemonica: "Japan" artist? Seriously? Is this like a "Russia" artist?


That's honestly a typo... I was thinking "artist from Japan" but then maybe wanted to type "Japanese artist" for brevity, and well... there you go. Let's just blame it on the beer. ;)

It's cool and all, but what kind of creepy mofo do you have to be to dedicate your time to manipulating dead shiat as an art-form?

/Yes, that goes for taxidermists too
//The Janitor was in fact one creepy dude.
