The Turkey # 11

The Turkey # 11

So first off the moment I saw this one that silly intro to “For Whom the Bell Tolls” started rolling in my mind, then I imagined it with old Kirk Hammett hair, and I lol’d a lil… all that not even mentioning the amazingly snug, holiday jorts!

The Draugr Entry # 3

The Draugr Entry # 3

You know if i was like 80 feet tall and looking for a fun night… I gotta say this crew looks like they have potential! Sure they’re undead and loaded with weapons… but how can anything with such teeny lil feet be all bad? And that one in back is most definitely wearing a modified spaghetti pot!

The Vegetable Lamb Entry # 21

The Vegetable Lamb Entry # 21

I’m torn by seeing this as one whole composition or more one of those collagey nature poster showing the various stages of foliage… though not sure it matters when the little fuzzballs on the vine are that cute!

The Bunyip Entry # 3

The Bunyip Entry # 3

Butterfly! The official stroke of terrifying, long armed carnivores! Also for all you vinyl manufacturers out there, I would gladly sip a beer from a lake float that looked exactly like this!

The Ropen Entry # 10

The Ropen Entry # 10

What Airline ads look like when we’ve really perfected our bio-mech! The lights in the back are of course the passengers’ reading lights… and man, that one tooth is so close to his eye it makes me squint!

The Lufferlang Entry # 6

The Lufferlang Entry # 6

I’ve been watching lots of Rick n Morty lately, and all I can think is “Only I can have eyeholes! Give me those eyeholes!!!” beyond that , this is an adorably, lopsided, with too many joints, and excitedly hurried prance!

The Gaki Entry # 2

The Gaki Entry # 2

Nothing quite like playing a game of what appears to be baby bird on your own distended belly! And the more I look, I kinda love that the texture only lets me see that vomited and re-gobbled substance as “magic sand”!

The Lady of the Lake Entry # 9

The Lady of the Lake Drawing # 9

Here’s a secret about me, ever since i was a grub, if i see that lil rebound drip of a displaced fluid anywhere, I immediately start the old PBS “3-2-1 Contact” theme song in my head cause you know…. contact, is the answer, It’s the reason why everything happens! … great ethereal gaze btw!

The Wooly Hen Drawing # 7

The Wooly Hen Drawing # 7

Man this twice boobied bird has gone and gotten its wool done up something special! Look at the pride in those eyes… now hope it never rains again… And dammit now I want some soft serve!

The Misfit Toys Entry # 4

The Misfit Toys Entry # 4

Well first off, I’m not entirely sure, I don’t have this lil adorably misshapen ragamuffin upside down, and in doing so, i might be promoting an unintended misfit adult toy joke and missing the obvious… but hey, as my friend cody says “if there’s a wiener joke to tell… tell it!”

The Turkey (2016) Entry # 19

The Turkey (2016) Entry # 19

Gah! That lil tower of off kilter yet perfectly balanced poults is so close to aggravatingly adorable I’m still not sure I’m not mad at it… Nice smoothly hooped bill btw!

The Momo Entry # 5

The Momo Entry # 5

It’s fantastic to see that the appreciation of funny walks has reached as far as the donkey – piranha – chimp hybrid community! That a bumbershoot tree?

The Corn Mother Entry # 1

The Corn Mother Entry # 1

Nice! A lil bit reverential and a lil bit Siouxsie Sioux. And if you’ve ever had a yoga class where they say, “root your sit bones to the earth” well I’m pretty sure this is exactly what you’re supposed to envision!

The Bean Nighe Entry # 13

The Bean Nighe Entry # 13

Just cause most folks don’t like “doing the wash” doesn’t mean it has to be a somber affair! And sometimes those adorable wideset frog eyes really help to set a pleasingly swampy mood! Also great pubes!

The Sphinx Entry # 5

The Sphinx Entry # 5

well I made the mistake of imagining what something with such a giant heavy swollen head would look like flying with its butt centered wings and dammit I cant stop giggling… all jackknifed and too heavy to fly… anyways… for such a sullen looking face I gotta say, there’s some spring in that stomping prance!

The Selkie Entry # 3

The Selkie Entry # 3

Haha, it all comes down to the butt huh? So I’m not entirely sure whats happening at the bottom of those boobs but because my brain seems to violently reject the notion, and that’s sorta what art is about, I’m going with little tiny people legs!

Bloody Bones Entry # 4

Bloody Bones Entry # 4

Unintentionally combining some of my favorite things! First there’s nothing like the awe inspiring mood set by a good cold gray surf. And second anyone who knows me, has had to listen to me extole the virtues of the old Kids n the Hall intro where Kevin Mcdonald eats a drumstick in the shower, and while there’s no breading, its freaking close enough!

The Billdad Entry # 3

The Billdad Entry # 3

Haha dammit that thing is cute! I mean those lil drooped fore paws and the glazed over deer in headlights eyes! And that loneliest feather headdress? Come on!!!

The Ghoul Entry # 3

The Ghoul Entry # 3

“the ghoul fishes for a steed” – This is also technically probably when the Ghoul thanks his stars that hare’s aren’t equipped with a mouthful of hand removing shark teef!

The Gougou Drawing # 11

The Gougou Drawing # 11

Man that’s some nice giant man eating fish lady plumage! And one hell of a broiling sea! now if i could just figure out whats up with that oddly squidy front butt ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Jackalope Drawing # 22

The Jackalope Drawing # 22

Yes! now that is a jackalope well equipped fro love! he even comes with his own thunderstorm! And dammit if those lil stilty hoofed front legs aren’t fantastic!

The Tauret Drawing # 14

The Tauret Drawing # 14

Hahaha! So i have no idea what’s going on there but I can safely say I’m glad i don’t have to clean it up! And points for somehow triggering the memory that i need to re-watch “from beyond” again soon!

The Adaro Entry # 2

The Adaro Entry # 2

Oh man look at that tiny lil fish butt and scrunched up lil shark nose and maybe it’s that aforementioned nose but I keep seeing the horn as the skinniest xmas elf hat ever! “Bye Buddy! Hope you find your dad!”

The Boggart Drawing # 10

The Boggart Drawing # 10

I feel that if I was younger or higher this one could make a lil more sense, but understanding doesn’t limit the enjoyment of the lion in rollers style mystery! And look ITNET! you’re giant belly button is slowly catching on!

Baba Yaga Vs Pollo Maligno Entry # 1

Baba Yaga Vs Pollo Maligno Entry # 1

So I have this friend who just out of spite refuses to watch The Princess Bride and it drives me absolutely batsh*t… All I know is if it comes to a game of poison cups I’ll surely not be picking the glass in front of him! Btw I love this!

The Bridge Troll Drawing # 9

The Bridge Troll Drawing # 9

If there’s one thing doing this for all these has changed about me, it’s possibly an evolving appreciation of warty undercarriages and giant mountain teeth! Plus I gotta commend you on a very spry looking lil bridge!

The Cactus Cat – Drawing # 23

The Cactus Cat - Drawing # 23

See there’s gonna be kinda fun wave here with these old beasts… I mean I have no clue what jokes I already made 3 years back and it’s very un-me to go back and check… so we’ll just assume the succulent cat joke was already played and instead focus on how much i love that lil head blossom… makes em look sorta Hawaiian!

The Automatons Entry # 5

The Automatons Entry # 5

“o father, where art mine androgynous appendages?” – Ooh good magical aether! And appendages or not I bet there’s a wookie ideally not so far far away who would gladly strap you to his back!

The Tommyknockers Entry # 5

The Tommyknockers Entry # 5

“he’s simplifying the process” – That right there is some solid murder scrawl! And the kinda outside the box thinking that people write linked in posts about ๐Ÿ˜‰ I wonder though… does the name “Johnny Knockers” elicit just enough curiosity from a lonely miner that he still has to “come knocking” more often then not?

The Hombre Gato Entry # 5

the Hombre Gato Entry # 5

Technically I think these are more mujers than hombres… but I mean how’s a species gonna go on without both right? and ummm there are a lot of jokes to be told quietly to yourself here so I’m just going to leave it at who said cat ladies don’t know how to have a good time?

The Flying Reindeer Entry # 14

The Flying Reindeer Entry # 14

I mean this is pretty much the theory behind the ion thruster no? Every poop thrust outward into the abyss will multiply their speed by some ungodly integer and before you know it the whole world is crop dusted aaaand we’re all richer with presents!

The Orang Pendek Entry # 4

The Orang Pendek Entry # 4

“rumored to be an herbivore… rumored… ” – Yes! aka the red haired murdersquatch, master of disinformation! I really like that it seems like we’re continuing the wapaloosie tree too!

The Wapaloosie Entry # 2

The Wapaloosie Entry # 2

Yeah I’d love to discuss your blustery day and all christopher robin… but I am seriously out of my gourd on fungus right now!

The Turkey 2015 Entry # 17

The Turkey 2015 Entry # 17

You know of all the turkey parts that science can swell with flavor… I gotta say the neck would not be my first choice! ha! Seriously though special thanks to our artist here as she muscled a hell of a lot of great bird drawings out of her family and we appreciate it!

The Mummy Entry # 16

The Mummy Entry # 16

You know I thought “Magic is Everywhere” was a Doug Henning quote but the internet says I’m wrong… But whoever said it, turning an industrial sized roll of toilet paper, a chicken wing and a couple of giant, probably priceless, rough cut rubies into this masterpiece of surreal beastiness would tend to prove the point!

The Mokele-Mbembe Entry # 8

The Mokele-Mbembe Entry # 8

So same artist as number 7 if you cant tell, but what I’m not sure of is if this is a precursor to the bath pic? Some sort of dino truth or dare or simply how Congolese dinos feed their sarlac? Regardless I’m standing by it, giant dino heads still cute!

The Mokele-Mbembe Entry # 7

The Mokele-Mbembe Entry # 7

Hahaha! Oh giant smiling heads what won’t you make better? So a small part of me is concerned with how exactly a dinosaur learned how to use a tub, what that means for our future and how many peace corp volunteers were eaten defending their one and only clawfooted one in camp… But really that’s the best part about cute, it makes concerns just go away!

The Ogre Vs The Pukwudgie Entry # 14

the First Place Ogre Vs Pukwudgie Entry

See, if you listen really close, you can hear it. The world just got a lil bit better! I mean I have no idea if that face is asking “where did that damn pukwudgie go?” or if that’s an expression of pure sloth-like joy? but I know I like it!

Judge’s Commentary – Ok so this one’s not from a newbie, but it’s been a while since cate won and dammit… How can I not… so much confusion, I mean is that a bellow? if so why? sadness? joy? lost pukwudgie? Look at those ogre boobs (ogoobs?) and that horrendous toof spacing? It’s like you made this just to make me happy and I appreciate that!

The Sandman Entry # 12

The Sandman Entry # 12

So growing up, lil me had a bed that lined up with an unshaded window pretty much just like that… and yep this is pretty much exactly why I was always terrified to look out that window, so thanks for that! hahaha! Also I kinda love this dude’s pointy ears!

The Onocentaur Entry # 11

The Third Place Onocentaur Entry

Man! So I think the big picture concept here is strong enough that I can let it speak for itself and instead wanna focus on the almost spongebob level of infective joy in those arm and leg movements… well and those lil donkey furred moobs, those are great too!

Judge’s Comments – Cause Id watch a cartoon all about this adorable 4legged ween… I mean imagine how funny he’s gonna look when he leans way down for a really aerodynamic run!
