Piggy Piggy


at the hannibal auction back in april, i won the collar hannibal wears in season 3 when he’s all naked and trussed up like a naughty piggy at muskrat farm

the day i received it in the post i set it up on my dining table with some dry flowers i had lying around (i’m not a fancy person, i’m just a lazy shit who doesn’t throw away their flowers when they start getting old and crispy) and took some ~nice pics~, but then it went back in its box until i could make a permanent home for it

i bought this very smart glass display cabinet from ikea a few months ago, and i was going to try and use the dead flowers i had to make some sort of fancy display thing like i did before, but then i happened across this shop selling the most amazing flower-decorated animal skulls. they had a bunch of ready-made skulls to purchase (even a muskrat skull, and i was tempted), but i contacted the owner and commissioned this hannibal-themed deer skull. she’d never seen the show before but i sent her some pics and yelled about how great it was, and she produced this beautiful work of art~ she even put on feathers for the ravenstag  👌

anyway, should you be in the market for a very hannibalesque centre piece/objet d’art/thing to mount on your wall, i would highly recommend paying the shop a visit on etsy. she’s also in the past made very lovely floral antler hair clips, and i was sorely tempted to buy one in addition to the skull

and now the best part of the story: thanks to my commission, the shop owner started watching the show (and loved it)

That moment when you realize all of your pictures so far have just been variations of the same pose…
(Don’t worry. Next one I’m doing is Simon, and I’ll find a new pose for him.)
Piggy is my favorite, so I’ll probably draw him the most. He’s just too adorable for words!!

Something has changed in you. Towards me. You’re distant, cold. I don’t know what I’ve done, but I’ll leave you alone from now on if that’s what you want. Is that what you want? You know why I’d leave you alone? Because I care about your feelings more than mine. I love you. There I said it, not just on some chalkboard. I would never let anybody or anything hurt you. I’ve never felt that way about anyone.
