How Tos now on Fecal Face
July 27, 2006 3:50 PM   Subscribe

I've linked their site before, but now Fecal Face has instructional How Tos: Stuff a Mouse, Make an Oil Painting, Screen Print a Poster, Make a Mini-Comic/Zine. The site has many other features as well but remember that where there's art, the occasional nsfw image may wait, brooding.

I'm sorry, What Face?

Thanks for this - answers my pre-caffeinated navel staring contemplation of what to do with my artless life question, this morning.

They actually did a pretty piss-poor job stuffing that mouse.

The comments under the oil painting tutorial are awesome. It's like a hipster civil war.

Much as I hate to snark, that was a shitty mouse-stuffing.

The rest of it made up for it though.

That was a really poor job they did on the mouse.

But the joke is on them. Since they didn't use any preservatives on the skin, it will start to rot and smell and/or get infested by beetles or moths.

The one-sheet comic zine trick is awesome. A few years ago I came across that trick and made a few Christmas Cards [PDFs, self links].

I think more stuff like this would be good to help people make art. What if the Pimp Elfwood (posted here) people took the time to talk about what they were doing when they were "improving" the artwork? Kind of a "each one, teach one" kind of thing. Would we have more ghetto paintings, fantasy art, shmaltzy holiday cards? Sure! Would that be so bad?

Shannon Wheeler, creator of Too Much Coffee Man, has described how to make the one-sheet mini comic a number of times.

I'm an oil painter and although I work on gessoed board, I don't know anyone who stretches their canvas after completing the painting.
