Increasingly alarming deer


I think I was drifting towards making some Mad Scientist Animal pictures, but I became distracted. Then, looking at the remnants of a developing idea I felt...


So while my collection started at an ornamental level, my work progressed. And while I never entirely understood that kind of mad scientist trope of the mad genius sewing kitten heads onto the bodies of chickens or something, well, surely it couldn't hurt in a few photos? You know, just to see...

First are merely a couple of mirrored geese, than a reasonably innocent two-headed bird tableau:

But then I got started on some deer.  They were coming out really nice, but very... normal.

I particularly like this next one:

And then (Francis Bacon type warning), they, all at once, went completely off the rails. The stuff of nightmares! 

Which, for some reason, is what I was looking for.

Though looking them over now, I can't quite remember why.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
