The Monster of Elizabeth Lake Entry # 1

The Monster of Elizabeth Lake Entry # 1

Yes our fisherman has survived his Indiana turtle stalking! And looks like he found himself a nice shady spot on the lake, so long as you dont pay attention to how much eeeeeevil radiates from this thing’s every pore and 6 webbed duck feet!

The Beast of Busco Entry # 1

The Beast of Busco Entry # 1

God I love those tiny pupil-ed unfocused turtle eyes! Also as a kid I had a rubber ankylosaurus, I was always frustrated that it sat so low in the water vs floating threateningly on top… And now, like two weeks from my 44th birthday, I learn I was just imagining wrong!

The Bear Lake Monster Entry # 1

The Bear Lake Monster Entry # 1

Man I sorta love this lil fisherman series! He’s always fishing the “structure”! Three cheers for the duck feet and dammit that is a great, dopey vulture slash backwoods gator slash pinhead noggin at the end of this beast!

The Devil’s Lake Monster Entry # 2

The Devil’s Lake Monster Entry # 2

You know for a northern Sconnie lake, I would’ve pegged the water as more of an amber vs Caribbean blue, but dammit I cant fault a guy for keeping his lake monster palette consistent! And I’m sorta hoping the next part of this stretch to the surface is eye stalks!

The Charles Mill Monster Entry # 1

The Charles Mill Monster Entry # 1

See I bet a lot of you cynical folks out there see this as a picture of soon to be “bobbed” for and devoured fisherman… In turn I offer you that this is a lifelong friendship and symbiotic relationship, where the beast provides the shade and structure to attract the fish and the fisherman in turn shares his catch and companionship with his drooly and armless friend… swooon!

The Catoblepas Entry # 3

The Catoblepas Entry # 3

Some day we’re going to have to do Catoblepas vs Sea Hog cause dammit i wanna see this guy eating a bucket of fried chicken with “this guy”! And to all you young’ns out there, this picture pretty much sums up getting old… so take a look, see what you should get ready for 😉

The Amphisbaena Entry # 1

The Amphisbaena Entry # 1

You know when the legends all talked about wearing a bifrontal lizard, I have to admit, I thought more stinky, limp talisman… this makes a hell of a lot more sense and if done really small, the kinda clasp we all hate, that can really wedge itself in under your fingernail!

The Ropen Entry # 2

The Ropen Entry # 2

“If they survived all these years I figure they have advanced somewhat.” – Yes a beast with an eye towards technological advancement! Though having tested similarly structured wings as a youth I’m curious what kind of sorcery is afoot…. also FLAAAAAAVIN!

The Lufferlang Entry # 3

The Lufferlang Entry # 3

Lots of times I like to imagine theme songs for these guys… this one is dark, complicated, and jazzy with lots of fred flinstone bowling style high ended piano clinks… and unpredictable as… well unpredictable as a 8 kneed mule, duh!

The Gaki Entry # 4

The Gaki Entry # 4

Haha! I’m still trying to decide what sets the mood better, that sour freaking puss or the blanket of brown background… Ya gotta love that beaker and pippet, body shape… and how much would it suck to not only be a shame starved gaki, but also having the pleasure of a good case of gout?

The Wooly Hen Entry # 1

The Wooly Hen Entry # 1

So how’s this as a metaphorical wrench in your mythical knowings… what if the golden fleece really came from a chicken?… Dammit that’s a contented lookin’ hen!

The Lady of the Lake Entry # 1

The Lady of the Lake Entry # 1

Haha does she have a snorkle AND a huge gob full of chaw going on at the same time… that’d be a magical talent being able to pull off both… though I’m not sure why you would… back to our picture! Look at those beautiful green english hills and dammit that blue tinged skin makes me want a shawl!

The Tatty Bogle Entry # 1

The Tatty Bogle Entry # 1

Ha! So either this lil square jawed lad is wee as hell or those are some of the largest buttons I’ve ever seen! And it’s funny maybe it’s the potential energy in those cocked arms or maybe I just want it, but feels like he’s about to start conducting, what I can only assume, is a pretty motley orchestra…

Quetzalcoatl Entry # 3

Quetzalcoatl Entry # 3

Ooooh such a solid traditional rendering! Like the beast of 1000 textures! And I’ve always thought there was something about the way they set the eyes on the old sculptures that reminds me of Gonzo’s muppet cannonball googles… knew the future, these guys did!

The Misfit Toys Entry # 2

The Misfit Toys Entry # 2

Hey! I see what you did there…what is it about the, slightly rouged, electric yellow nipples that makes it oh so much worse! (by that, of course, I mean better!)

Oggie The Giant Salamander Entry # 3

Oggie The Giant Salamander Entry # 3

Yes! So unhealthy and such a good never ending haze of filth! You gotta assume this guys language is made up of a series of sad “uuhhg”s… And I have to say, the subtle yellow belly glow coming through, is a very nice touch!

The Turkey (2016) Entry # 2

The Turkey (2016) Entry # 2

Yesss… taking a very famous trademark in a much darker direction! No one ever promised that holiday gatherings are all fun in games!

The Kitsune Entry # 4

The Kitsune Entry # 4

So I grew up in the “Fox Valley” where every locals business had a fox head or tail in there logo lock up…. So I guess it’s understatndable that these kitsune drawings all trigger some random childhood memory… this one, with its striking graphical fox, is my “Fox Trot Fun Run” freebie T that I favored for several summers… sadly this one’s disqualified for a forbidden tenth tail 😉

The Great Pumpkin 2016 Entry # 3

The Great Pumpkin 2016 Entry # 3

Haha! You had to know this was coming! Can you imagine how hard that quaff is to manage when your tiny lil arms barely even reach far enough up to do the home alone face? and such good dead, unfocused, eyes!

The Werewolf VS The Mummy Entry # 2

The Werewolf VS The Mummy Entry # 2

Man that werewolf has an amazing butt! And while undoubtedly a dick move, (assuming that mummy’s not one of them lefties) if you’re going to lose a limb to a supernatural beast, I think non dominant arm is the way to go… Plus we don’t really know that mummies can’t grow arms back…

The Underwater Panther Entry # 2

The Underwater Panther Entry # 2

So I understand that folks don’t love the idea of their vegetables being made mostly of weed killers… but if food science could put a horned cat head and paws on a shrimp… I’m pretty sure the world would be a better place!

The Dingbat Entry # 3

The Dingbat Entry # 3

To quote the girl who sits right next to me – “You know I love a good gif!!!” That blink makes me so happy! And I think it took me seeing the “ding” created an entirely different way to wonder if the “ding” in dingbat is actually the noise a bullet makes bouncing off em? Stupid poor lumberjack documentation!

The Hippalectryon Entry # 2

The Hippalectryon Entry # 2

While this guy looks like a friendly good time, pretty sure he’d get tagged by a bouncers as trouble the moment he walked into a bar… You know what they say: Never trust an excitable horseheaded bird around liquor!

The Momo Entry #2

momo-itnet

Where he at?
There he go!
Peanut butter jelly.
Do the peanut butter jelly, peanut butter jelly,
Peanut butter jelly with a baseball bat. 

I’m a huge fan of beasts with lazy eyes. I could totally imagine this guy’s brain singing the peanut butter-jelly song on repeat, over and over.

The Corn Mother Entry # 3

The Corn Mother Entry # 3

Haha 1950s corn mother seems especially disapointed in something… what did you do? what did you do??? Side note, I will never understand how people slept in rollers…

The Bean Nighe Entry # 1

The Bean Nighe Entry # 1

It’s like the scream, if the scream had long wet boobs! And those are some great mournful empty eyes! spooooooky!

The Sphinx Entry # 2

The Sphinx Entry # 2

Gah! Well that’s freaking adorable! While the lil down dog, I wanna play, kitty stretch is amazing… I’m voting the super excited snake tail is my favorite part! That’s also a pretty amazing rump!

The Menehune Entry # 3

The Menehune Entry # 3

When the Kid from “Up” hit puberty and first saw Slayer!… well even in hawaii I’d assume slayer would draw more folks than that… maybe it’s his first ukulele based slayer tribute band?

The Selkie Entry # 2

The Selkie Entry # 2

Why am I suddenly reminded of ET in his bag lady dressup?! And while you gotta love the make upped and flowing haired eyelash bat, I’m voting cuter as a seal!

Bloody Bones Entry # 2

Bloody Bones Entry # 2

Oooh he sorta reminds me of my favorite movie zombie, the overbitten, wobbly headed one in the basement from “Return of the Living Dead”! And always a fan of what looks to be a science project volcano level of bloody drool!

The Jorogumo Entry # 3

The Jorogumo Entry # 3

“Break the interwebs!” Haha yes, almost makes you wonder how newscasters will casually manage to say a mythical beast drawing contest was the cause without smirking! And two great sets of feets in a row! I’m sorta loving the Jorogumo!

The Billdad Entry # 9

The Billdad Entry # 9

Maybe its the lil dino hands but I imagine this guy would talk just like Kiefer Sutherland in Dark City? And that btw, is a freaking glorius beaver tail!

The Pegasus Entry # 2

The Pegasus Entry # 2

Yes! It’s got the aerodynamics of a 1940s sci fi cover! And is that a butt fired rocket engine or beautifully flowing tail? Sorta hard to know, but both work equally well!

Baba Yaga Vs Pollo Maligno Entry # 3

Baba Yaga Vs Pollo Maligno Entry # 3

Yes! well that’s one way to win a child eating contest! And while i suppose there could be something less nefarious going on, like say an ultra close throat singing contest, it just doesn’t seem to carry the same punch!

The Ghoul Entry # 1

The Ghoul Entry # 1

So this ghoul is giving exactly the same look that my bulldog makes when you try and drag him out of his favorite sunspot… Not active displeasure so much as a silently made decision that eventually… some day down the road… he’s gonna eat you for this…

The Adaro Entry # 1

The Adaro Entry # 1

Hey you know I never even thought about this but I suppose we are describing something very goblin sharky! The lesson about murdering aside, if they looked like that I sorta feel like everyone should have a toss-able poison fish plush!

The Automatons Entry # 2

The Automatons Entry # 2

There’s something so endlessly creepy about clock eyes! But then I see those adorably tiny bronze owl horntenna and I feel better about the world again! Also I like to think that big slidey switch on his chest is how you swap channels to the atari!

The TommyKnockers Entry # 1

the TommyKnockers Entry # 1

So first and foremost the flower pot hardhat and the suspenders both struck me as equally funny today… not like both aren’t perfectly functional devices in at least, a mostly make believe, world… But if he’s in fact diminutive, he’s stolen either stolen one tiny ass egg salad sandwich from his own people or the worlds littlest miner!

The Hombre Gato Entry # 1

The Hombre Gato Entry # 1

Hahaha! Swinging for the fences already! … It’s the look of surprise, and the calligraphic line on the shoulder over the leg to show how far back there he really is that sells this one in my opinion!

The Flying Reindeer Entry # 4

The Flying Reindeer Entry # 4

Yesss! If this were the case i would imagine Twas the Night Before Xmas would have a lot more words that rhyme with thwaap!
