Now, What do you call THIS?
After all that about cuteness, what happens if you take all that cute stuff, and distort it, till it becomes on the verge of dark. I just ran across this artists, through one of my many link searches. Artist Marion Peck takes it a little father than is, perhaps, comfortable for most. Here I go, exposing my darker side. However, I must qualify this last statement, this entire post for that matter, with explaining that... although this may not be for the faint of heart (or the extreme left-wingers), this stuff must be viewed with a sense of humor. A friend of mine once said, if he had a band he was going to name it "Nervous Laughter." This definitely comes to mind when viewing these strange and dark, yet delicate and deliberate portraits of Marion Peck. The animals are especially pathetic, in that nervous, lovely, funny sort of way. Enjoy.
