Carlson Mondays (Every Other Monday)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more amazing art. Now, let’s dive into the incredible world of Larry Carlson!

  • Rainbow Bubbles by Larry Carlson pigment print on metallic paper 

This is a jaw-droppingly beautiful work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. The entire piece glows with vibrant colors and aqueous patterns. The patterns are seemingly endless, and spiral down towards the center of the piece. The bubbles appears to have strange creatures living inside them. This is definitely one of Carlson’s most detailed works, and by far one of the most beautiful ones. Tell me what you think of it in the comments’ section below.

  • Untitled by Larry Carlson pigment print on metallic paper

This is another fantastic work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s a neon display of multicolored fractals and swirly patterns. The various repeated shapes remind me of a mandala effect, and it’s incredibly pleasing to the eyes. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

Yokai Wednesdays

Konbanwa, everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some more fascinating yokai. Now, let’s go on a journey to the “Land of the Rising Sun”!

  • Kosamebo are bizarre creatures of Japanese mythology. They closely resemble Buddhist monks, and live near mountains. They’ll spook travelers, and ask them for food or spare change. While completely harmless in nature, Kosamebo can be quite annoying.

  • Kuro bozu are extremely dangerous creatures of Japanese folklore. They’re depicted as dark, shadowy beings with bestial facial features and incredibly long tongues. They also can manipulate their size at will, and can run ridiculously fast. The yokai will enter a person’s home at night, and suck the breath out of their mouths. Those who are visited by this demonic creature on many occasions will become violently ill.

Asher’s Art Gallery (Every Other Monday)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some wonderful works. Now, have fun exploring my gallery!

  • ERZEROTIK (KONIG) by Jonathan Meese 2017 Acrylic on canvas

This is a very unique piece by “German Contemporary Artist”, Jonathan Meese. It’s a sublime blend of pinkish hues and melting reds. It kind of has a memento mori feel, due to the skull-like figure near the center. I don’t often find pieces that really impact me other than Abstract ones, so this is a very nice trip into something more modern. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

  • Women’s Intuition, After Aspen by James Rosenquist 1998 Oil on canvas

This is an incredibly awesome work by “American Pop Artist”, James Rosenquist. The manipulation of the piece is absolutely incredible, and very appealing to the eyes. The painting is covered in vibrant reds and comical spirals. I love that the red color is coming from the lipstick on the left. This is definitely on of the most astonishing Pop Art pieces I’ve ever seen. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

Carlson Mondays (Every Other Monday)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more trippy paintings. Now, let’s get started!

  • Untitled by Larry Carlson Date Created: Unknown 

This is an absolutely gorgeous work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. It’s a nature scene with kaleidoscopic trees and psychedelic shapes. The main tree’s base is incredibly awesome, with a rainbow design that reminds me of infrared light. It’s painted with meticulous attention to detail, and I absolutely love it! The colors will blow you away, and the trippy swirls will put you into a trance. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Full Buck Moon by Larry Carlson

This is yet another great piece by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s a nighttime work with a fantastic blend of Realism. The bottom of the painting has realistic rocks and the titular buck. The sky is covered in a beautiful cosmic sheet, and the moon has an aura around it. The sheet has a rainbow sheen, and it really brings the piece all together. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

Mythology Wednesdays (Every Other Wednesday)

Hello everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some more fascinating creatures. Now, let’s get started!

  • Minobi is a mythological phenomenon that originates in Japanese mythology. It     resembles a small cluster of fireballs that have a firefly’s glow. They gather around people with straw raincoats and stick to the fiber. The entities then burn, and begin to multiply. A large mass will swarm around the individual, and force them to remove the coat. While they aren’t dangerous, they can be extremely annoying.

  • Bastet is a holy figure of Egyptian mythology. She’s known as the goddess of cats, and is depicted as a humanoid figure with the head of a lioness. She defended the pharaoh, and protected people against disease and evil spirits. She was the sister of Horus the sun god, and the daughter of Isis and Ra.

Even More Crappy Video Game Art (Every Other Wednesday)

Hello fellow gamers! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us take a look at some more cringy artwork. Now, let’s begin this crazy journey into some pure garbage!

  • Karnaaj Rally for the Game Boy Advance November 21, 2002 Genre: Action/Racing

Karnaaj Rally is a fun little racing game with an assortment of weapons. The game was very well received by reviewers, and IGN gave it an 8.8 out of 10. It’s also known for having one of the worst video game covers of all time. The cover depicts a purple hot rod and an incredibly ugly man with bright blue hair. How the hell does the man have anything to do with the game at all?! He takes up more than half of the piece, and has one of the stupidest expressions I’ve ever seen.  The cover has so much infamy, that even IGN commented on it. Tell me what you think of the work in the comments’ section below.

  • Black Belt for the Sega Master System November 1986

Black Belt is a side-scrolling beat em’ up from the 80’s. It’s a lot like the game, Kung Fu, and just as action packed. Unfortunately, the cover fucks things up again! You’d think a martial arts game would have an actioned packed cover, but no! The cover is just plain lazy, and it looks like it was made in 30 minutes! All the cover has is a single foot and tiny comic book-like effect. It definitely doesn’t make you want to play the game, and seems just like a disappointment to me.

SCP Special! (Once Every Month)

Reader beware! Scary content ahead!

Hello everyone, and welcome to a blast from the past! I’ve decided to take one random day from each month to the exploration of SCPs. I absolutely adore this macabre and morbidly fascinating community. It keeps growing every day, and I always look forward to the new posts. Now, without any further ado, let’s get started!

  • Graffito SCP-274 Object Class: Keter (Description is summarized)

Description: SCP-274 is a paint of variable color. Buildings inflicted with SCP-274 appear to have large amounts of graffiti covering the sides of the building, and often have large, disturbing designs to them (see addendum-274). While its consistency is that of normal paint, its composition reveals it to be 28% hemoglobin, 12% gastric acid, and 60% common components consistent with Krylon brand spray paint.

When SCP-274 is applied to a wall, it will begin to spread until the entire wall is covered by it. It’s unable to cover metal, glass, or any horizontal surfaces. When SCP-274 spreads on to buildings, it will convert the wall’s interior into a large mesoglea, the interior walls into a gastrodermis, and the exterior walls act as a protective shell and epidermis. This becomes SCP-274-1

SCP-274-1 has human level sentience, and will lure people to it by making grunts and whimpering. If a human gets to close to the anomaly, it will be absorbed into is gastrovascular cavity. This transforms them into SCP-274-2.

These organisms are depicted as men and women wearing respirators, gas masks, and pastel colored hoodies. They are masters of disguise, and will compact themselves on the wall until prey comes by. SCP-274-2 have a strange, hinged operculum located in their right hands. This device acts like a spray can, and projects SCP-274 like paint. Upon contact, the SCP will be sprayed into the victim’s mouth and eyes. This attack method is extremely painful, and the victim will blinded and numb from the neck down. The poor soul is then absorbed into the cavity, where it becomes another instance of SCP-274-2.

  SCP-274-2 duplicates itself every 24 hours, and when 12 duplicates are made, the entity will attempt to cover other buildings. If unchecked, entity may cover a large city within 20 days.

Addendum-274:

Date Found: 01/(BLANK)/2001(SCP-274-1-1), 04/(BLANK)/2006 (SCP-274-1-2), 03/(BLANK)/2010 (SCP-274-1-3), 08/(BLANK)/2011 (SCP-274-1-4), 11/(BLANK)/2011 (SCP-274-1-5), 07/(BLANK)/2012 (SCP-274-1-6),08/(BLANK)/2012 (SCP-274-1-7), 08/(BLANK)/2012 (REDACTED)

Appearance: SCP-274-1-1 is painted to resemble a large bus with the number (BLANK) on its side. The front of the bus has been replaced by a human like face, and the back is on fire. The bus patrons don’t appear to be effected by the fire.   

SCP-274-1-2 is painted to look like its crumbling apart. People appear to be running away, and a face is forming from the falling rubble.

SCP-274-1-3 is painted to look like a shark infested beach with people running from the shore. There’s also a giant tiki statue that covers most of the front of the piece.

SCP-274-1-4 is designed to look like a hellish version of Noah’s ark. The creatures are some types of unknown species, and they all have sharp teeth, and eyes devoid of pupils and irises.

SCP-274-1-5 is a scene of several figures in biohazard suits fighting each other for a bottle of hand sanitizer. There’s also several cadavers in a pile with a demonic grinning green dog laughing at the trauma. 

SCP-274-1-6 is painted to resemble a mausoleum. There’ s a large human skull painted at its front. The base has figures suffering from advanced stages of rigor mortis. Several figures appear to be wearing standard- issue tactical armor distributed to MTF-Pi-1. 

SCP-274-1-7 is decorated with a scene of MTF-PI-1 setting the anomaly on fire through the use of Molotov cocktails. There’s also a large depiction of the anomaly attacking the figures.

[REDACTED]. (BLANK) operatives dead as a result of a large mob of SCP-274-2 numbering between (BLANK) to (BLANK).

  • Blood Candy SCP-942 Object Class: Safe

Description: SCP-942-1 are colored gumballs of standard (2.53 cm) size. From the instance the gumball is ingested, the consumer’s bodily fluids will take on the appearence of blood upon leaving the subject’s body. The fluids coagulate like normal blood and are indistinguishable from blood by sight, smell, and touch. The blood in the body is seemingly unaffected, however, nosebleeds, blood-shot eyes, and tears of bloody will occur. There’s also some discomfort during urination.

Subjects have shown to have panic attacks after exposure, and may lead to severe bodily harm or dehydration.

SCP-942-2 is a small bubble gum dispenser for home use of a model produced by [REDACTED]. The machine appears to have an unlimited supply of SCP-942-1, and can be damaged normally. There’re currently researching the replenishing capacity of the machine. The words; “Try something different today! Sweet and candy-red!” are engraved on the underside.
