I hope you saved them all, 4chan threads don't last very long.

Yeah I saved most of them. Pretty weird stuff.

I'm very curious about this. if it's real, I want to know more. If it's fake, as many rightly suspect, I'm still curious about the artwork. I'll try to hunt down more information, but nobody else on the 4chan thread was able to find anything, and the original site seems to have hmmm disappeared.

I've not heard of anything like this before.

These are great Aeron, I looked at the thread earlier today and saw the others, but I didn't have much time - and now they are gone! Are you going to post the rest of them?

Oh my goodness! That's the greatest thing I've seen on the interwebs in aeons - and that means something because I basically own the interwebs! o_O

Thank you so much for sharing this. What an inspiration!

Love & monkey brains,

Thank you. I was looking all over trying to figure out who it was - and now we know, and he's great. I'm enjoying his blog, even though I don't read the language.

I have to say, it was a nicely constructed hoax while it lasted. It had fantastic imagery, a backstory with a primal kick - I wonder if it will pop up again in forwarded emails and other places where myths propogate.

No, they don't, unless they're archived. However, the same memes pop up again and again. Currently there's a thread on /x/ on 4chan about disturbing imagery, and the flesh doll pictures came up again, and some of the posters thought that they were made from dead children.

Ouh gawd I'd love to have these collected and sitting on my shelf. Great way to freak people the fuck out. And they just look gorgeous.
