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!

"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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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).
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.

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.
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.

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.
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.

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.

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.

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.

"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.

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.

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.
