Stone Clonez: Rawk by Dawk. "...these gemstone characters are real and millions of years old. No artist will draw them, no computer will generate them, and they have been available all this time. Until now no one could figure out how to bring them into our world."

I'm such a negative fuck. But I'm going to go out on a limb and call this uncouth.

Rule one, as far as spelunking is concerned, or any endeavor that includes associating with ten million year old mineral formations is to leave it the way you found it.

I'm gonna go out on another limb and surmise this "purple chalcedony stalactite" from "Oregon" isn't your run of the mill "river-rock"

It's like fingernails on a chalkboard when I read things like this:

Thanks to all those prospecting folks out there! Keep bringing in those materials!

I applied this simple concept into a wonderful new art form; gemstone cartoons, through photographic collage.

Fret not, crasspastor...while they may not be particularly appealing, it seems that they're merely created by a little photoshopping.

I respect the creativity of what Dawk's doing, but maybe he could use these natural textures and shapes for something a little less forced than these fairly grotesque faces.
