I hope people don’t misunderstand what I like about ugliness.

I’m not mocking ugliness when I draw ugly trolls or grotesque creatures, not at all. I just love the variation available when you stop worrying about what’s beautiful or attractive or pleasing to look at and step outside it to find what’s daring, what’s extreme, what’s shocking and difficult and complicated and real and honest and dark and hidden and human. That’s why I like drawing characters with extreme features, “ugly” to me isn’t the opposite of beautiful, it’s another side of it. Each can provoke and inspire and when each is taken to a far enough extreme they become one another. They depend on eachother.

This is some artschool loser rambling I know but i’m just really committed to ugliness as an artistic ideal and I just have to talk about it sometimes.

I can heartily recommend Umberto Eco’s On Ugliness, which explores the concept of ugliness through the eyes of artists.

The Lions Mane Jellyfish is the largest jellyfish in the world. They have been swimming in arctic waters since before dinosaurs (over 650 million years ago) and are among some of the oldest surviving species in the world.

That is horrifying.

If that’s scary, than say hello to my little friend, the “Stygiomedusa gigantea.” 



This guy has only been spotted 18 times, and filmed only twice.



Its is also about 6 meters long and about a meter wide. 
Sadly it doesn’t have stingers, but it will still eat. It kinda just engulfs all it’s prey. I’m not real sure.

Aren’t Jellyfish so great? Because I think they are evil.

Jellyfish are actually the only creature we know of to have mastered total neurological regeneration as well as muscular regeneration, making them immortal.

NOPE

I’m scared of jellyfish.
