I have a few relatives who send us Anne Geddes cards from time to time. They think her cards are "adorable" but I just find them creepy as hell.

Babies are humans, they are not flowers, or faries or any other kind of weird crap. And any kind of normal person knows you don't dye their hair green.









This crap is worse than people who dress up their dogs in costumes...

The second one looks like some weird... alien... sack... thing.

Is maybe Anne Geddes some horrible, horrible ultra-pedophile?
Link Posted: 1/2/2006 6:26:18 PM EDT
I never seen them before, now one more thing to wake up with nightmares of.
Link Posted: 1/2/2006 6:26:19 PM EDT
Yeah, my son's doctor has them all over the little room they stick us in. I hate them.

My wife was given an Anne Geddes calendar for Christmas. She politely thanked her relative but on the way home all she wanted to talk about was how much she couldn't stand "that Anne Geddes crap". (I had never even seen her work before...but yes it's pretty much crap).

What's worse is that some of them look like they were photoshopped in MS Paint or something. I can't believe she gets paid to do that crap.

The next day we went to the bookstore and exchanged it for something a little less repugnant.

You guys need to relax. They're pictures of babies.

I don't see what's so great about them, but a lot of people think they're nice.

Here's something creepier. Have you heard of this artist before, Art Fahrm?



Apparently, all his artwork involves this motif of a woman whose panties fall down in front of men. He made calendars of these pictures for years. WTF?

Yeah, I heard of Art Frahm on Lileks' site as well.

But that seems kind of inappropriate for a discussion about America's most beloved pedophile, Anne Geddes. Or Michael Jackson. Whatever.

Tell the relatives to quit sending you cards created by a doped-up pedophile.
Link Posted: 1/2/2006 7:45:32 PM EDT
No, you aren't. I absolutely hate her work! I love pictures of babies but she just turns them into little freaks. I was horrified when my daughter pulled out one of her calenders last night; seems she likes that crap.

Women's panties falling down = sexy.

Babies au naturel = creepy.


I see lots of man cards getting revoked in this tread.

She USED to be good, but now relies on Photoshop. Half the fun of looking at her pics before 1997 was: "How the heck did she do that?". Now, it's all cheapo trix I can see here at ARFCOM, and done better here.

I can't stand her crap.

In high school, my maths teacher had her pictures up all over the classroom.

Yeah, she was a freak too. Spent more time talking to the girls up the back about fluffy bunnies and Melrose Place than teaching maths

No, they are CREEPY pictures of babies.

Babies as a general rule do not creep me out.

The fact that other people find them charming is pretty creepy too.

I had a Chemistry teacher like that in High School. She was the cheerleading coach and basically ignored you if you weren't in the popular clique/cheerleader.
And yes, those pics have creeped me out for years. I heard that they're practically new borns when they take then. Like less than a week old. No chance in hell I'd ever to that to my kids.

First I've heard of him. And while strange that is far from creepy. At least he has an inherent talent.

And while the concept is a unique one, I don't think a full artistic career can be based upon a single notion of a chick whose panties are always hitting the floor. Which is probably why I never heard of him.

If you are gonna be wierd, you better draw as well as Sorayama.

Sounds like alot of classes I was in, someone always spending most the time talking about something. One was on of those people who thought Micheal Jackson was god or something

Giger is SUPPOSSED to be scary. If people said his shit was cute and he made Hallmark cards with babies as a theme THEN I'd be creeped out.

Giger makes some fucked up shit and i would say this stuff is equally distrubing IMO
I however think most Giger stuff is cool
beside who doesn't think his most famous creation is not cool?

pic for you who do not know who he is
