As Slate pointed out, the internet loves crappytaxidermy. While we may not have much to contribute to that illustrious canon, we do know taxidermy. Our video "Modeling Animals in Habitat Dioramas" about how artists create the animal sculptures for the Museum’s famous habitat dioramas, shows what it takes to create a meticulously accurate specimen. 
Watch the video.

I inadvertently started a triptych today - glamour shots of ugly animals. This is a giant leaf-nosed bat; next up is a star-nosed mole, then some kind of toad, probably.

The reason I have paint all over my face (and arms, and pants, and hands…). Not done, but I had abandoned it months ago, so at least it’s progress…

The problem with letting people in is that then you must rely on them.  I thought I was fine on my own, no friends, no commitments, no dependence on others for satisfaction in my own life.  But then I met wonderful people, felt real love for friends for the first time in my life, and now I feel beholden to that connection.

The worst part is, almost everything in my life is good right now, which actually makes me feel like shit for being unhappy.  I simultaneously love and hate that I have fallen into the habit of allowing others to foster happiness in me - I’ve never had that before.  Only now I feel that my happiness is dangerously close to becoming dependent on my relationships with others, and that is an extraordinarily uncomfortable feeling for me.

I think I only have one real life friend following me here on tumblr, so if you read this, I’m sorry - you know I don’t talk about this shit in person, and I’m sorry if it affects your opinion of me.  Rest assured that I shall be back to my regularly scheduled programming by the next time I see you <3

A few shots of my scarification piece from Sunday. Hard to get it all in one picture. This is the third time I’ve worked on Evan. He flew in from Seattle for this one. Once it’s healed we have plans to incorporate some tattooing into it. Scarification work by Ryan Ouellette, this design was drawn by Nick “the barbarian” Kelley. Precision Body Arts in Nashua, New Hampshire.
