Swinebalg + Plague Doctor = ARS SOMNIUM (+ possibly the birth of dreampunk)

SWINEBALG!


PLAGUE DOCTOR!

EC Steiner | King Unicorn says,

“ARS SOMNIUM has officially launched!”

“ARS SOMNIUM is an ongoing exhibition between Carisa Swenson | Goblin Fruit Studio and myself celebrating the characters and creatures that appear during our nightly visitations to our private dreamlands. These beings are rendered as one-of-a-kind artworks and shared online for your amusement. The first character to appear from my workbench is an interpretation of Carisa’s Plague Doctor encounter.”

Drax says, Freaky fucking… Dreampunk! It could be a whole new “genre,” always collaborative in nature, first a dreamer, then realized by a second, a shaper. DREAMPUNK!  Huh. No wiki entry. Well look at that. DREAMPUNK!!! Like, in Gaiman’s Sandman, A Doll’s House, when The Dreaming is collapsing, and everybody’s dreams slosh into everybody else’s… YES!

Dreampunk.

It’s beautiful.

I will hate this tomorrow.

dreeeeeeammmmmm-punk…
