Flash of Genius – Images by Francisco Negroni

On any other website, Francisco Negroni’s images would be considered blatant fakes. They have most of the elements found on the cover of a death metal album. Lightning : check. Fire : check. Angry volcano spewing smoke and/or brimstone: check. All that’s missing is blood and a couple of human skulls. Yet, Francisco’s mind-blowing images are […]

A Taste for Meat – Stills from Chris Field’s Biolapse

Biolapse is Chris Field’s brainchild. It’s actually a rather fascinating timelapse of carnivorous plants ‘hunting’ and eating their prey, though “hunting” may not be the most precise term to use since it involves actively stalking and pouncing on prey… These carnivorous plants stay firmly rooted on the ground. What they actually do is ‘lure’ hapless […]

Troll Selfies – Creepy Creatures by Impsandthings

Impsandthings is a sculptor and art teacher. Her real name is yet unknown, which leads me to think that she’s maybe a fairy of some sort. After all anonymity is all the protection she’s got.
