It's Krasue by ursulav It's Krasue by ursulav
UPDATE: Krasue T-shirts now available on Redbubble!
[link]

Krasue loves long walks on the beach, the flesh of the living, giggles, boy bands, and tearing placentas from pregnant women who live near graveyards! Krasue hates thorn branchs and mean people! Krasue is from Thailand! Krasue would like to give you a big hug!

…What, you never wake up in the morning and think “How can I make something really horrific today?”

The Krasue or Kra-Sue, as it happens, is a Thai ghost that consists of a woman’s head or skull with its innards still attached at the neck. The description above is fairly accurate, except for maybe the bit about boy bands. Since it appears that my fate in life is to make things cute, I figured I’d see how far that could go.

Painting cute intestines is hard. (What's next? Cute Bay-kok? Cute Nuckalavee? I have no idea!)

Prints are available at Red Wombat Studio, because you totally know someone who needs this for the nursery, right? Of course you do. [link]

Lots of folks are crazy for Krasue!
They used to be crazy for Coco Puffs but health concerns changed their minds.

Looks great.

Creepy but....disturbingly...cute. :P

Oh dude. You should do water babies next. They were supposed to be these little shriveled kind of things that lived in the water, and the Washoe Indians would throw scraps of food in the water and stuff to appease them... I think you'd like them :D

Awesome! I actually never saw a Krasue, Penanggalan or other intestinal vampire portrayed with just a skull head, does that go back to the original folklore as well? It's really adorable :D

Lovecraftian types will start walking on their hands and wearing hats on their feet if they ever read a paradox like this... As for us lovers of nonsense, do carry on. I only wish Edward Lear could have poked at Edgar Allen Poe in the same way.

If anyone could paint a Nuckelavee, its you. Distant (and violent) relation of the Kelpie, if anyone is wondering.

Oh and bonus points for the intro story :)
