I have blogged before on various ways you can have your body dealt with after death. Here’s a new one: mixed with pigments and turned into art. Wayne Gilbert is an artist who took abandoned cremains and used them to create paintings.
The San Antonio Current published an article a little while back on Gilbert’s work, including a discussion of the almost blasé attitude he took toward using these materials for his art. You can see a full portfolio of Gilbert’s paintings at his own website.
Personally, if I were cremated I think I would prefer to be made into fireworks.
