Superbe Lutin Mommifié

Jacob Petersson is at it again!

He created as a commission a beautifully done Lutin (a type of gnome or house spirit in french & québecois folklore), all dried up and levitating with only his beard touching ground!

Lovely work, as always.

Go take a look!

Not Guilty

The case of Rémy Couture has finally been laid to rest; the jury has decided that even though his work is shocking and brutal, it is still art, and shouldn't be considered criminal.

A good news for the artistic community in Canada.

However, the whole ordeal will have cost between 25,000 and 45,000 $ CAD to mr Couture, thus, if you want a nice t-shirt with "Art is not Crime" printed on it, or ladies, panties with "corrupt me" printed on them are also available, you can get them at SupportRemy, and all the profits go to Remy Couture's legal fund. He still needs our help!

The case of Remy FX - please read.

I just realized I never talked about this case before.

I want to talk to you about Rémy Couture, aka RémyFX. Rémy is a fx artist specialized in horror makeup effects, a very talented one, based in Montreal. He is also a collaborator of Le Mur Insolite, an art gallery focusing on the dark and the bizarre which is currently exhibiting some of my work, and has worked along Rick Genest, alias Zombie Boy.

Picture I took of Rémy at last summer's zombie walk

In 2009, a german citizen was browsing the web when he stumbled upon Inner Depravity, a website created by Rémy, showcasing some of his goriest work. It basically is a sort of "journal" kept by a fictional serial killer, posting pictures of his murders. Of course, it is all makeup & fiction, as specified in many places on the website. However, the german citizen panicked, thinking there was foul play involved, and contacted Interpol.

That's how good & gruesome Remy's work is.

Following an investigation, the police of Montreal, on october 2009, arrested Rémy, and confiscated his computers & other such equipment.

Rémy is now accused of "Corruption of Morals".

The Girl & The Siren

After almost a year of work, Jacob Petersson & Cristoffer Ålund finally finised their short stop motion film, The Girl & The Siren. Being a big fan of Jacob's work and an animation student, you can probably guess I was excited to see this film finally online!

Settle down with a nice cup of black tea, watch that beautiful film, and go like their facebook page.
