Art That Scares You Auction

The Australian speculative fiction and art community are holding an online art auction to raise funds for Paul Haines, a talented writer currently fighting bowel and liver cancer. The theme 'Art that Scares You' was chosen to reflect the kind of creepy, disturbing and macabre fiction that Paul is known for, as well as the fear and horror surrounding cancer itself.

The ART THAT SCARES YOU auction will be going live from Art That Scares You from 14-28 August 2008. Items include "The Survivors" by Shaun Tan, "Heaven and Earth" by Cat Sparks and "Chairman Sanders" by Andrew Macrae (pictured below). Other items in the auction will include original art commissions, manuscript assessment services, fabric art, sock puppets, cards, jewellery, sculpture, china and various rare and unusual books. If you would like to donate an item, contact Tansy at artscaresyou@gmail.com.

You can visit Art That Scares You from 14-28 August 2008 to bid in the auctions. Please feel free to redistribute this information.

In the meantime, if you'd like to make a donation via paypal click here:

Monument to a Suburban Backyard.
Tatlin's Tower

I've decided that our garden needs a scale model of Tatlin's Monument to the Third International. I'm sure it could be aligned to act as a sun dial.

Step One: Learn to weld.

Abbey's Alien

I was shifting things around on my desk earlier and found a card that had come home with Abbey from kinder last year. No matter how hard I look at it I can only see one thing.*

Xmas tree card

See it?


Abbey vs Giger

* For the record I figure she was trying to write her name, but had the pen in her left hand, her right hand fingers in her mouth and her brain at lunch.
