giant children

The United States of Horror

Original Imagine:

Imagine Loki and Thor as children. The two boys decide to take turns wrestling/play fighting where one is the ‘brave Asgardian’ and the other is the ‘scary icky frost giant.’

Frigga stands nearby with her hand over her mouth, heart aching as she tries to think of a way to make them play something else, while Odin stands there looking satisfied and simply nodding.

I can’t help but think of you
In these four walls my thoughts seem to wander
To some distant century
When everyone we know is six feet under
skulls, bastille
(or the song that describes them completely)

I want this as my alarm tone. I’d never wake up in a bad mood again.

Last month we featured paintings of a girl and her giant dog friend. That awesome fantasy just got a whole lot more realistic. NYC-based visual artist Mitch Boyer is working on a children’s book about a gigantic dachshund named Vivian who just moved to the big city. Vivian the Dog Moves to Brooklyn tells the story of a giant dog who finds out she’s moving from New Mexico to NY and has to adjust to the move itself and then living in an entirely new location.

“Every year, over 5.5 million kids between the ages 1 to 9 move to a new home, in the United States alone.* It’s scary to leave behind the home and people you love when you relocate. So we’re making a photo-illustrated children’s book about a dog who moves to a new city to help kids who are going through a similar experience.”

Vivian really is Boyer’s dog, but she’s not actually 6 feet tall. They’ve been together since she was a puppy and in that time they’ve lived in four states, five cities, and 10 different homes, so they know a few things about adjusting to life in a new place.

Boyer is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to complete and distribute Vivian the Dog Moves to Brooklyn. Head over to Kickstarter to learn more about this delightful project.

             The First Men named us children. The giants called us wok dak nag gran, the squirrel people, because we were small and quick and fond of trees, but we are no squirrels, no children. Our name in the True Tongue means those who sing the song of the earth. Before your Old Tongue was ever spoken, we had sun our songs  t e n  t h o u s a n d  y e a r s .

domestic deathclaws

okay so i want to just

babble about my domesticated deathclaw headcanons. this may take a while.


  • first off, domestic deathclaws are ridiculously loyal, and don’t forget a slight. think crows. you treat them kindly, they remember it, and they pass it down through the generations. by this logic, deathclaws are loyal to their keepers’ families. so stealing a domesticated deathclaw hoping to turn a profit? will end in some messy deaths, and most likely the stolen deathclaw galumphing home after few days, likely with a bloody gift.
  • when raising deathclaws for eggs, it’s best to keep them in groups of mostly females. females will be gravid probably no more than once or twice every few months, but are not actually receptive to breeding more than once every two or three years.
  • it’s recommended to keep them only if you have a very large, fairly secluded property, with plenty of space. enclosures should have high, fortified fences, though most fences won’t keep an unhappy deathclaw penned in for long. to keep escapes to a minimum, make sure your deathclaw enclosure has a constant supply of water (large enough for at least two fully grown ‘claws to bathe in at once), and an even mix of sun and shade.
  • provide a selection of large, rough stones and boulders in their enclosures, as domesticated deathclaws tend to purposefully dull their namesake appendages to avoid accidentally harming their keepers. this makes them no less dangerous, so always be cautious. young ones may adopt a “favorite rock” and will often play-fight over and steal them from one another
  • standard deathclaws, the variety most common in the wasteland, are difficult to tame, but once this is managed, they domesticate fairly easily over one or two generations.they respond well to positive reinforcement, such as treats or scritches (the soft underbelly, once they trust their keeper enough to expose it, is a popular spot), much better than negative, as is the case with most varieties. negative reinforcement, especially corporal punishment, often results in loss of life or limb

I made a fast ref of my Smiling God

his attire mimic the one of a priest, he ocasionally like to garnish himself with various collars, flowers, jewelry, body parts, etc

“Heh, heh… Thanks… You’re nice. Umm… Can I ask… a question? Your friends… What kind of… people are they? I wonder… Do these people… think of you… as a friend?”

“Heh, heh… Thanks… You’re nice. Umm… Can I ask… a question? What makes you happy? I wonder…what makes you happy…does it make…others happy, too?”

“Heh, heh… Thanks… You’re nice. Umm… Can I ask… a question? The right thing…what is it? I wonder…if you do the right thing…does it really make…everybody…happy?

“Heh, heh… Thanks… You’re nice. Umm… Can I ask… a question? Your true face… What kind of… face is it? I wonder… The face under the mask… Is that… your true face?

These awesomely surreal and delightful collages are the work of Eugenia Loli, a California-based collage artist who uses images scanned from vintage magazines and science publications to create bizarre and playful scenes. From a little girl creating our solar system by blowing bubbles to meat loaf that contains galaxies, children riding giant tortoises and planes that drop candy instead of bombs, these pieces reveal Loli’s love of science fiction and unabashed geekiness and we’re completely smitten.

For more of her wonderfully weird collages, follow Loli right here on Tumblr at eugenialoli. Prints of some of her collages are available here. She also offers many of her pieces as downloadable files under the Creative Commons license via her Flickr account.
