  1. Love giant squid, was a great TV show on them recently, where they went down and filmed one in the wild for the first time. Incredible creatures. Here’s news of a rare dead one washing up in Spain. Just look at that eye.

  3. The Carta Marina was originally published in 1539. There are a couple of versions of it around. Here’s a big one, and some details from the map. You can visit a version of the map at the National Geographic site, and click around, zoom in etc. I love the sea-creatures in this map, ever since I spotted them in a monster book I owned as a child.

  4. Some beautiful maritime monster prints / illustrations. Artists unknown.

  5. Over the years Giants have been a fascination for me, be it through myths and legends, literature or films. So much so that they have often featured in the subject matter of my art works. During my studies as an art student, I did a series of paintings featuring Welsh giants, one in particular called Idris, who in legend was the monstrous man who created the funny shape of the mountain at Cader Idris (Idris’ Chair) in North Wales.

    Collected here are what remains of those monster paintings. Some were sold, others destroyed and photographed. They’re not great, but I have a fondness for both the characters in them, and ideas, concepts and references they have in relation to my experiences pertaining to giants.

    (note the double exclamation mark)

    Just seen this on facebook, travelling around as a viral. WOW!

    image

    Its called a Lions Mane Jellyfish, the largest jellyfish in the world! They have been swimming in arctic waters since before the dinosaurs (over 650 million years ago) and are among some of the oldest surviving species in the world. I would friggin shit myself if I saw that in the sea. I have issues enough with the small ones that swim underneath you when you go wakeboarding or Snorkelling off Croatia.

  10. Various images of the legendary Kraken, a classic sea monster. At times depicted as a giant octopus, at others a squid, the Kraken remains a terrifying reminder of the unknown monsters waiting below the surface. I don’t know who created the originals of these image, so if you can name the artists responsible, please let us know.
