In the Artist’s Studio: Watching @wolfbat’s Carvings Come to Life
To see more photos of Dennis’s work—and the work of people who inspire him—follow @wolfbat on Instagram.
"Everything I do is hand carved with a chisel," says Dennis. While sometimes it’s hard to capture in a photo, "I try to show the process from start to finish to give a better idea of what people are looking at when viewing my work. It’s also fun to show some of the big sculptures I make for performance, which are then burned afterwards."
Dennis first heard about Instagram from his interns, he says. “They kept talking about it and encouraged me to join.” After signing up, however, his captivating wood cuts and sculptures—which take the form of Viking ships, dragons and other mythical creatures—quickly found an audience.
The Instagram community is also a source of inspiration. “I use Instagram to share my work,” which Dennis says is strongly influenced by the imagery of the early 80s skating and punk rock scene, “but also to see other peoples work and share things that inspire me.”
Went to go grab a beer, came back to this… Majestic as fuck.
I need this lol
I just found this gem on facebook and it is glorious
Me want now
at my wedding, I want 9 people dressed up as the members of the fellowship of the ring to attend and halfway through the vows they stand up and start arguing until the one dressed up as Frodo shouts “I will do it, I will take the ring to the bride!”
then it just falls silent as he slowly brings me the Ring of Power

I feel really bad for the sea lion that Seaworld forces to approach his/her natural predator.
Is it bad that I’m laughing extremely hard at how the orca just annihilates the sea lon in the 2nd gif?
all I can hear is NYOOM
You wanna know something cool? Recent studies of orcas seem to show that during the seal breeding season, they knowingly limit their intake of seals. In fact, there are documented cases of orcas gently grabbing seal pups and pulling them into shore to keep them safe from being eaten.
Why? You might wonder.
The case studies seem to say that the orcas know that no baby seals growing up means less seals next year. They are so intelligent that they’re aware of their own impact as a predatory species on their prey and actively work to conserve the number of that prey species for the future. Maybe we could learn something about moderation and conservation from these animals.
They should really be granded nonhuman personhood like they were in India.
Intelligence of Orcas. Well said.
GOD I LOVE NATURE!
MORE FUN FACTS!
Orcas are not as much of “killer” whales as everyone makes them out to be. In fact, the human fatality number reported in the wild in a big 0. They’re killer stereotype is likely from their hunting habits, which are just like any other predator (i.e. polar bears, foxes, lions, etc.)
Also, they have very specific dialects (scientists hesitate to say any species other than human has a language) to certain regions and families of Orca. On that note, Orcas have a very strong bond to their families and calves stay with their mothers for their whole lives. They play actually games in groups, have best friends, and even have hunting strategies and formations. Biologists have actually found that Orcas have an extra part to their brain that humans do not; it’s basically a bigger emotional centre. The emotions that orcas feel are much stronger than what a human feels.
There has been (at least one) case of an orca in captivity who has given birth only to have their young sold to a different park soon after. The mother stayed in the corner and made long distance cries (never heard before from orcas in captivity) trying to call out for her baby.
Orcas are very great, super intelligent, and wonderfully emotional, sweet creatures. I love them so much and I hope you do, too
