Long-Tailed Fire Lizard

Fire lizards: because Texas wasn't hot enough to begin with.

Evil Purple Cat Monster

Just a reminder that I have a couple of ACEO auctions ending tomorrow, including this grumpy, horned cat. I'm going to try to get a couple more ACEOs done so I can list some new ones tomorrow as well.

Monster Mash art show

I'm going to be in two group art shows in October, one of which is the Monster Mash at the Lowbrow Emporium in South Austin. The show runs from Oct. 13 - Nov. 30, and the opening reception is going to be on Oct. 13 from 7:00 - 11:00.

We're planning to do a live art show, where various artists participating in the show will get up and do some quick paintings on the spot as a DJ spins some art-inducing tunes. There'll also be a table for artist merchandise like prints and t-shirts, and of course I'll have a bunch of feeps there as well. I think it's going to be a blast, so mark your calendars and head out to Lowbrow on Oct. 13!

Orange-Capped Sprite

Backdrop provided by my cat.

Have I really not posted a sprite before now? Well, here we have yet another feeply incarnation, called sprites because they're always quite tiny and cute.

Thursday, September 27, 2007


A great many feeps don't have legs at all, or only have tiny, spindly legs. Apparently that's because this feep used up all the leg material.

Gold & Red Taunting Devil

In this photo it sort of looks like the devil isn't taunting anyone in particular, but rather doing its early-morning taunting exercises.

Brennen Von Snoot

"Yer not gonna cook me again, are ya?" asks Brennen Von Snoot, of the well-known and widely-dispersed Von Snoot family.

This feep is one of several that I dropped off at Sparks Cards & Gifts here in Austin, my latest venture into the land of retail. Sparks is located on 6th street right next to Waterloo Records and Amy's Ice Cream, so if you're in the area drop by and say hello to the feeps!

Sandwich Monster

It's been awhile since I've listed any ACEOs for auction on eBay (I've just been too busy to work on them lately), but I finally put up a couple of new ones, including this sandwich nosher. You can see the listings here.

Red Sparkly Slug

I understand that summer is over in some places, but 'round here it's still up in the 90s during the day, so the feeps see no reason to stop grilling. (I haven't asked what they grill, and I think I'd rather not know.)

Chambered Nautilus Necklace

And then the feep clambers up in front of the peephole so you won't look out and think there's no one there, and all you see is this big yellow eyeball.

Tentacle Mollusc

This is another of those feeps I think looks like the sort of appetizer one might serve at a sushi restaurant. You would get a little bowl to put all the shells in after you slurp out the tentacles.

Once again, you should not try to eat the feeps, no matter how much you may wish to. I promise, they don't taste good.

Copper Cat

Do you have any idea how hard it is to get a pill bug to pose for a photograph?

Purple & Blue Ghost

None of the benches along this bike path appear to have been sealed for outdoor use, so they're all covered with lichens and moss (and this one looks kind of like it got set on fire or something). It seemed the perfect bench for a ghostly feep to rest upon between hauntings.

Green Floppy-Eared Wine Charm Monster

And now, back to our regularly-scheduled feepery. As I return to my routine I need to figure out which feeps to work on next, and wine charms are at the top of the list. Gotta have enough to make sets, donchew know!

Green Raspberry Nautilus: Road Feeps Day 7

On my last night in Seattle we went to a Mariners game. I'm not sure if this feep had too many garlic chili cheese fries, or if it's going "bleah" at the 1-6 score (losing so badly to the Devil Rays is truly a source of great shame).

Conical Mollusc: Road Feeps Day 7

I'm back home now (I flew back, in case you were wondering how I managed to return so quickly) and posting the last couple of Road Feeps for this trip. I may well post outtakes later on, since I did get quite a few interesting pictures that I haven't been able to use all of.

This is another one from the University of Washington campus, out front of Gowen Hall.

Feeps in a Tree: Road Feeps Day 7

A tree on the University of Washington campus plays host to a number of traveling feeps.

Crimson Long Horns: Road Feeps Day 7

I spent awhile today wandering around the University of Washington campus and found this very feepacetic sculpture on the grounds.

Long-Horned Monster: Road Feeps Day 6

More pictures from the 1928 building in Seattle. These are the mailboxes (a little blurry because of the lighting, but the flash didn't suit the shot). I should point out that this is not typically how Feeps arrive in your mailbox when you order them from me online.

Long-Eared Slug: Road Feeps Day 6

I didn't get any pictures yesterday due to the relentlessness of the activity (and also from the having forgotten to bring it along), hence the skip in day numbers. Anyhow, this is a wall sconce at a building in Seattle from 1928. I took a great many feep pictures in this building, needless to say.

Orange Curly-Horned Monster: Road Feeps Day 4

This is in the far eastern bit of Washington, which is surprisingly brown (surprising to me, anyway). The rest stop was kept watered and so had a carpet of lush grass, but in the background you can see the more typical color of the terrain.

Tentacle Arms: Road Feeps Day 4

We drove through the top bit of Idaho, which means we weren't really in the state long enough to stop and take a picture, hence this on-the-move shot. Notice the scintillating beauty of the sunlight shining through the bug guts.

Copper Cat: Road Feeps Day 3

You will never guess which state this picture was taken in.

Cat Snake: Road Feeps Day 3

Wyoming has many interesting rock formations, as well as a number of signs warning about rattlesnakes. The cat snake doesn't rattle, but enjoys the terrain nonetheless.

Long Horned Monster: Road Trip Day 2

Yes, we're flying along. Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, and Wyoming all in one day. We had a bit of a snag around Denver, but sorted out a new route pretty quickly, with the help of our trusty road map.

Green Slug: Road Feeps Day 2

Sorry for the lack of updates. As you may have already guessed, internet access has been a little challenging to come by. I shall make up for it by posting a bunch of pictures at once.

First off, Kansas. I know I must have been to Kansas when I was very young, but I somehow failed to recall the flat and the corn and the wheat and the flat.

Angler Chomper: Road Feeps Day 1

Some feeps hunt by setting up near the ice bucket and waiting for unsuspecting hotel guests to be attracted by the glowing light produced by the feep's biolumescent lure. This one seeks prey in Oklahoma City.

Squid Mouth Necklace

That cat in the background is currently sitting on my hands, making it very hard to type.

Distressed Cat Slug Keychain

"Distressed Cat Slug" sounds like one of those arbitrary and non-descriptive names they give to paint swatches.

This keychain, as well as a number of other feeps, is going to get listed in the eBay store sometime later today, so you may wish to pop over there and take a peek.

Purple Long-Eared Slug

There was a slightly better plant of this variety for posing a feep, but that plant was already occupied by a green bug of some sort. One can't just go evicting insects for the sake of photo shoots, so I had to move on to a different plant.

Thursday, September 6, 2007


I know I just said a couple of days ago that feeps don't eat decorative plants. It is possible, however, that some of them are pollinators.

This is one of the new figurines I just put up in the Etsy Store, by the way.

Purple Toothy Nautilus waiting for the bus

Don't you hate it when you forgot your umbrella and the bus is late and you just know it's going to start pouring at any second?

Tuesday, September 4, 2007

Crimson Long-Horned Monster

To the best of my knowledge the feeps will not munch on your decorative plants, and therefore do not need to be controlled by the introduction of feep-eating toads.

Conical Mollusc

Just out for a postprandial scuttle.

Electricus Von Snoot

I had not actually set out to make a Von Snoot with an electricity bolt on it, nor did I have any subtle plan when deciding to photograph it posing on the base of an electricity tower. I only just noticed the link when trying to come up with a name for this Von Snoot. This is probably one of those cases where I should just lie and say it was all planned that way from the beginning to make myself seem more clever.

Small Green Corkscrew

You probably figured this out already, but you should not attempt to open a bottle of wine using a Corkscrew Feep.
