The Brownie

The Butter Churning, Floor Sweeping, Porridge Eating, Shrowded Beast of Limey Lore

Brownies are helpful spirits of Scottish and English folklore. Unlike their closest relative the Hobgoblin who prefer to do their work in the buff, Brownies tend to lean more to the full coverage of a hooded cloak, or sweater, trouser & hat combo and always, and I mean always, in brown. They’re small, they’re kinda humanoid, they’re wrinkly and I’m pretty sure you can guess what color their hair is…

Most Brownies are attached to a single household or farm, where they may reside for centuries. They are protective of their homes and become upset when humans quarrel or (and I love this part) do not treat their animals with kindness.

Emerging at night to do their work, Brownies are said to do numerous household tasks which may include cleaning, sweeping, crushing grains (homebrewers take note), or the old favorite, churning butter in the barn! In return, Brownies are often paid in bowls of cream porridge or the occasional loaf of bread left out by the homeowner. It’s important to hide your jewels when a brownie is about as they are incredibly enamored with shiny things and even more importantly never criticize their work as they are very sensitive and no one wants a sad Brownie…

judgement Is Complete

our judgeOur Judge this week is Ms Brittany Brown! (now known to the world as Mrs Brittany Perlmutter) She’s small, she likes shiny things but my guess is you wouldn’t catch her dead in a flat brown robe. A marketing maven somewhat unique it the digital world as she has ideas, strong opinions and likes to get things done! Having watched her grow from the quiet mayor of shantytown (don’t ask) into a full grown powerhouse, I’m proud to be working with her again and excited to see what she becomes.

Okay, here’s a brownie churning butt. err… Yesss! man he is way in there too! That is a monsterous smile, I love the happy yellow background and I swear those tiny lil sacrum shadows make it instantly recognizable as butt!

Judge’s Commentary

An adorable little man, so happy to be churning butter straight from the source of a real live butt? What a beautiful depiction of a brownie…I kind of want this as my screen saver, is that weird?

Well of course ballet is hard little brownie, but it might be a teeny bit easier if you didn’t try and do it with a bowl full of steaming porridge in your hand… and if a loaf of bread and bowl are properly scaled wtf took that bite?

Judge’s Commentary

porridge, butter, bread and ballet…what else could a Brownie need really? Very coordinated, and an all around well done releve┬┤.

Long ago I worked with a dude who after particularly smokey lunches would grab the broom so no one would notice how very high he was. It always ended in a pose like this, slowly sweeping his own shadow… also, this is fantastic!

Judge’s Commentary

I am not going to lie, I have no idea what is going on here, but I find myself gravitating towards this fantastically drawn man. Not to mention, who doesn’t love a man who will actually pick up a broom and clean?

So is the lovable cat that looks kinda like Nermal, patiently waiting for a bit of spilt cream? does he prefer his cream churned? or is he about to wallop that wrinkly little noggin off and feast on crunchy brownie spine goo? Whichever i heart him.

My initial reaction was to call racists, but beyond the exaggerated schnoz, he seems mostly harmless, plus he’s managed to grow pot brownies on a plant, has funny arms, and he’s churning butter in what’s most definitely a honey pot!

I have no clue what he’s doing in that sock… maybe mending? but I know I freaking love this guy’s face… I’m guessing that’s a bowl of porridge, and he’s english so the dots are prolly raisins? …. but is he sitting on an egg???

If I learned anything designing marketing for “adults”, the more the merrier! If you replace the churn with a droid I bet somewhere there’s a jawa fanboy with a notebook full of this stuff… my lord did I butcher their mouths though…

He hangs out at some old lady’s house. Stealing her rosary beads and other sparkling items. That all makes sense, and he’s amazing in that he looks like a lil peapod baby with progeria, what i need to know is who the hell has giant golden fish hooks?

This one’s submitted from the road, so just wanted to mention that I appreciate the commitment : ). Part Jawa, part real world Brownie and I swear part Orko… so good, but I really want a close up of those merit badges!

Man those are some fantastic pink toes! Good inclusion of shiny things and you gotta love a giant leech mouth and I’m gonna say the wardrobe choice of the entirely bare crotch is an interesting one given the length of that top!

God I love these, so I’m just gonna note my favorite parts, the continued presence of star ways vehicles in attack mode, the leg lost to diabetes, the ying yang play of teh “o’s” in poop and those freakish head hands…aaahhh!

Ha a familiar face but if you were to ask me a much more regal pose than we often see him in, like he’s the “brawny man” of today’s Brownie, impressively masculine but comfortable in churning a lilttle butter for the ladies.

Aw look at lil guy trying his best to stretch into proper perspective, not sure if its what pop culture has done to them but I always think gingerbread men must just live in a world or terror, all greedy grabbing hands and crunching jaws.

Haha! So this one got me! the old wake up look and your hands have been replaced with creepy little brooms hands… or maybe they’re like silicon basting brushes… not really sure which is more usefull, but they both make me smile!

You really have to appreciate the confidence of a good english house spirit…. there is no way I would be smiling likw that as snuck by something that large and carnivorous… but I suppose I’m only mostly crafty!
