From the Department of Awesome Animal Hybrids come Octopussy and Seahorse 2, two more wonderfully weird and tentacular paintings created by San Francisco-based artist Robert Bowen (previously featured here).
Both are currently available here as signed, limited edition prints.
It’s Tentacle Day on Geyser of Awesome!
Redditor jaaba232 typed “Majestic Creatures” into Google’s image search and found this awesome hybrid of a tuxedo cat and an orca. The orca cat looks like a formidable predator.
Redditor metellius just started learning how to use Photoshop. They’ve used their new photo manipulation skillz to show us what an awesome creature you’d get if you crossed a pigeon with a horse. But what would you call it?

From the Department of Awesome Hybrid Animals comes the work of French artist Julien Salaud, who has made a name for himself by carefully combining parts of different animals to create taxidermic hybrids like the awesome Feathered Piranha, or Vieux Piraï Emplumé, seen here.
As awesome as the spectacle would be, let’s be thankful that piranha-birds don’t actually exist. Agressive, chompy fish flying through the air sound even scarier than killer bees.
Sculptress Jessica Joslin uses a wide variety of wonderful objects such as an “antique ceremonial collar, antlers, bone, velvet, antique hardware, glass eyes, universal joints, springs, brass standoffs, casters, mink collars, saxophone keys, antique shoehorn, beads, lamp fittings, glove leather, music wire, [and] cast pewter feet” to create an awesome menagerie of fantastic hybrid creatures like the ones you see above.
“Her work recalls a sense of the Victorian era’s obsession with detail and death and yet retains a playfulness attributed to circus shows of trained animals performing gravity defying feats.”
It’s time for another visit to the Department of Awesome Animal Hybrids: Redditor ATa10rightNOW discovered that this wonderful image is what you get when you search for “Seal Pup” via Google. Redditor coydog33 then chimed in to say that this “seal pup” was created by TheGoodLordAbove. It’s a photoshop miracle and it still needs a name. What would you name it?
It’s a Catfish!
This time around, for his colour pencil series entitled: SaMpLeS FrOm ThE LaB, illustrator Rob Foote took a break from pairing food and animals and went right for a direct animal pairing instead.
We think you’ll agree that the results are very pleasing. You can’t see it, but we’re all standing back here in our lab coats and goggles cackling and applauding in support.
