Tardigrada

Here I copied a microscopic photograph of an organism called tardigrada, or "water bear". I found this particular picture in a Watchtower some jehova's witness gave me, but there's more awesome images of it to be found via google and check out the cool video on this site.

Also, no cthulhu, but a random monster in the same vein.

I can't get enough of these monsters, Lovecraftian or otherwise. I've been doing some analog stuff lately and it's striking how similar our sensibilities are. Dense blacks for the win!

I love it! I'm a big fan of micro anatomies. Check out this weirdo - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdjmjNAmHIk

Dust mites look really cool as well, strange little bastards. Check out this disturbing 3 minute documentary on the creatures that live on us and inside us. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBU6-XK2v54

This micro freak looks to be playing a weird game of pacman - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpOxgAU5fFQ
