instructions for my funeral

1. don’t you dare
show up looking like

someone you aren’t. it’ll be enough,
having a broken pulse, don’t

break my heart, too.

2. if the priest
starts talking about
how I

was a good fucking catholic, stop him. tell
him about my clumsiness and
my relentlessly curly hair, tell him
about the boy

I was in love with
when I was sixteen. if he doesn’t

understand, tell anyone who will listen.
my ugly fingers, scarred from
nervous habits. my explosive

laughter, the way
I only did sing

in the shower.

3. please, oh

God

please. leave the bouquets at home. don’t
layer death on top of me,

I

don’t want to struggle
getting back to you

on Christmas by way of a flickering candle,
on your 39th birthday

in that space of darkness that is every blink.

4. don’t worry
about being formal, I

never was. I’d rather you
get up there and

sing Vienna by Billy Joel than
sit in the pew, your hands folded

for the first time in years

over me, and my unfolded oxygen supply.

5. know that
I have

never been
afraid

of dying. death is the truth. I

fear lies. don’t lie. don’t wear
sadness like a scarf

that doesn’t suit you. don’t
steal winter

from Hades, everyone knows
hell is cold. I was always

a summer girl.

Take a look at these incredibly tiny illustrations of the American West by California-based artist Sam Larson. Now go grab a penny and then look at the drawings again to really appreciate just how small they are. Our favorite piece is the Bigfoot scene. That may be the tiniest Sasquatch we’ve ever seen.

Larson posts all of his marvelous miniature illustrations on his Instagram account. Follow him there to see more.

asylum-art:

These are fascinating sculptures done by Robert Cannon . He calls the work Terraform Sculpture. TERRAFORM (literally, “Earth-shaping”) the process of deliberate modification of the atmosphere, temperature, surface topography or ecology to be similar to those of Earth to make it habitable by humans. While in Robert’s case, he uses concrete and mosses with most of his creations.

This woman made a miniature Bag End and it is so friggin’ cool and detailed, I can’t even…

To see more pictures and read about the incredible process, check over here!  She actually added a bit at the bottom describing the actual process - with pictures! - so maybe you can make your own miniature hobbit hole too ^_^

Mixed Media Art of Elisa Naranja Metalica 

Buenos Aires, Argentina-based artist Elisa Naranja Metalica inspires herself from pop culture, mythology and art history to create her art, which is often crafted using toys, trash, jewelry, and plenty of other objects that can be resurrected from the bottom of a drawer.
