I might have guessed this would have creeped me out, but looking at them it doesn’t at all. I guess I’ve seen enough movie special effects to get my sensitivity up. Maybe seeing them in person would have a different effect.

Reminds me of Dave McKean’s work, especially Mirrormask.


The Zebro™ is striking.

Sure they are. Not taxidermied heads from stolen corpses. Just Sculpey, I swear!
