The Art of the Beasts (Tattoo)

We just got an amazing photo and email from Chloé Tartinville of London:

Chloé writes: "This movie means so much to me! Because it talks about the most important things to my heart: the freedom to live the life you choose, the respect for nature and the earth that's been given to us, the idea to be bigger than your fears even when you're little, and also, it talks about gender identity and tolerance. And this relates very much to the little tomboy I used to be. Here’s a photo of my tattoo (who the man now?).  One day I’ll have a daughter, she’ll be as awesome as Hushpuppy (and Scout from Mockingbird)!"

Chloe inspired us to share some of the other tattoos we've come across in our internet travels. Like this one via @anteaurora, just like the one on Miss Bathsheba's thigh:

And these beautifully detailed aurochs from @sweets_ink:

We love this depiction of the Hushpuppy and auroch confrontation from @mattyrx.

Eleven Hushpuppies for Eleven Years Young!

August 28th is Quvenzhané Wallis day! It's a big holiday in the Bathtub, but we're not the only ones who love to celebrate her. Here's 11 images of our "King" as she turns 11 years young today. They'll make you want to laugh, cry, and beast it hard, just like our tiny hero herself. Hushbabies. They grow up so fast! (Click on each image to find your way to its source.)

The Creators Project on Beasts

The Creators Project produced a series of in depth videos on Beasts of the Southern Wild including featurettes on the Aurochs, cinematography and soundtrack. While you can find them posted throughout our blog, we thought it would be nice to view them all on one page/post. Enjoy! MAKING OF BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD PART I
