Innocent looking Cans of Harbor Chowder sitting in the cupboard.

Joining us this week in a thoroughly good-natured gothic way are artist animator beer maker musician superstar necromancer warlock magician wizard kitty cat dragon dark force bearded sorcerer pals Ben and Federico! Federico is making a drawing a day for the entire month of October, in case you need more than one countdown in your life, check it out.
Having just suffered through a mighty mighty bout of food poisoning, dear reader, I can attest that this Gothtober piece has been the most difficult one for me to post yet. Normally chowder doesn’t really sway my countenance, but this week was a whole other matter. Beware of what you eat, it can really change your day, or your week, or… oh just go click on PUMPKIN #10 of Gothtober and don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Jessica Hlavac The PieMY LORD, what’s she going to do with that razor blade??? Will she cut her own wrists? Hijack a plane? Enter into an eternal blood oath with Lucifer himself? What terrible horror awaits you, dear viewer?!

Oh wait. What’s that cute little pie doing there? Hang on, let me check my notes. OH. It’s Jessica Hlavac, the mad genius behind i’m so tiny, where she showcases minuscule foods meticulously crafted with her very own, non-threatening hands! She makes everything from breakfast to dessert, all about the size of a quarter. You know, that thing in your pocket that’s only about an inch in diameter? Yeah, that. Just look at this croissant sandwich sitting on one of them:

Jessica Hlavac Croissant SandwichShe even admits to being a little crazy, having “made a whole damn tiny ham just to slice it up” and make perfect ham slice edges for this diminutive sandwich. CAN YOU STAND IT.

So here we are, on Day 2 of Gothtober 2011, wondering what sort of miniature madness Miss Hlavac has cooked up this time. Ok, it’s a pie. But if you think you can follow her steps and make your own pie, as if the sheer smallness and perfectness of her handiwork isn’t mind-boggling enough… well, she’s thrown you yet another curve ball. Just try and catch it.
