Come swim in the cesspool.
The water is vile.

A hooded man plays a twisted game of cards in a back alley. The parents of a demon baby are plagued by their brood’s incessant whimpering. Death loses its meaning after a sick experiment by an old doctor. The silence of mimes cuts just as sharp as their blades. A ballerina twirls gracelessly as a toy laments its fate. Bungling teenagers attempt to dispose of a body after a threesome gone horribly wrong.

Cesspool features 20 pieces of macabre art by Jay Hansen and Devin Francisco, accompanied by grotesque stories by Joe Knetter, MP Johnson, T.A. Wardrope, Tyler Hansen, Kenneth E. Olson and Roxie Hockensmith.

Haunting and beautiful. I remember a painting by Angus Mckie from the Terran Trade Authority Handbook "Spacewreck: Ghostships and Derelicts of Space" by Stewart Cowley. Are you familiar with it?

Hmm, if there is only the air in the suit, would it be enough for the body to decompose ...
Oh pardon me, too much biology studying. This goes to favs.

But on a more serious note, this is absolutely lovely. It still looks solid and rigid and detailed even with the water color. I'm in love with this.
