XTR3M3 Turtle

As you can see by the color, this turtle consumes a great many energy drinks. It is a frequent winner of turtle races, with top speeds of up to .000000734 miles per hour.

Eared Purple Eyestalk

The Eyestalk attempts to answer the question of how easy it is to become hypnotized by staring at a bunch of lines if you have no depth perception. Science!

Red & Silver Horned Blob

Hiding in the woods is never a good idea. The zombies always show up on the opposite side of the tree from where you're keeping watch.

Butterfly Dragon

While this dragon may seem harmless at first, it sleeps on beds of hoarded pollen and breathes a deadly blast of allergens.

Orange Curly-Horned Monster

Some feeps make a passing attempt, at least, at camouflage.

Peppermint Von Snoot Snake Orneryment

Nothing says Christmas Eve like cavorting with ladybug larvae on a picnic table.

Devil Blob

Bogeyman of termites everywhere.

Monkey Magnet

I made this as a gift for a friend who collects monkeys. I myself seem to be fixated on cats and dragons and birds, so it's good to branch out into other feeply representations of the animal kingdom (mythical or otherwise) from time to time.

Primus Von Snoot

This is the first ever Von Snoot, the venerable Primus.

Lookout! Nautilus

Run for cover! The dreaded feephawk is coming!

(The feephawk is a bad-tempered predator, bitter about having been picked on by sparrows all its life.)

Purple Tentacle Twist

You have to get up pretty early in the evening to claim the choicest stump in the swamp.

Blue Dragon

Feeps are occasionally overwhelmed by a need to put on Vincent Price impersonations.

Chomper & Bunny Monster

"We should definitely check out what's over here."

"I'm really not so sure that's a good idea."

The Judge

The Judge is a freelancer and will be happy to adjudicate on just about anything. The quality of these gourds, the tastefulness of those shoes, the insanity level of that cat.

Sphere Mouse Magnet

But what kind of tea? Oh dear oh dear oh dear!

Long-Horned Eyestalk

Long-horned eyestalks have a horrible fear of and a terrible fascination with acorn squash.

Yowling Purple Longhorned Monster

Like cats, feeps are able to see into the spectrum of light known as the Things to Be Yowled At and Sometimes Chased Spectrum, which is invisible to the human eye.

Carnivorous Santa Hat

I put a few new feeps up in the eBay Store last night, including this Carnivorous Santa Hat.

(Disclaimer: Feeps will not actually do your hand-wash dishes for you.)

Eared Purple Blob

Traversing the treacherous Gourd Pass is harrowing work.

Meanwhile, the Wheatsville Arts Festival was very successful, for which I thank the many people who bought feeps. This does mean the Feeping Creatures eBay Store is a wee bit understocked, but I will be adding more stuff throughout the week, so fear not. The feeps shall return, and in greater numbers!

Panic Feep - Show Prep

This was the last feep I made before Wheatsville, and yes, it's possible I was deriving my inspiration from the pre-show panic-fest of trying desperately to get everything ready.

Saturday, December 6, 2008

Wheatsville Arts Festival

By the way, the Wheatsville Arts Festival starts today (Dec. 6, 2008), which is the only possible explanation for my posting at 6:30 in the morning (6:30 AM is a foreign time to me, as I almost never stay up that late).

Anyway, the festival is at Adams Park on 30th Street here in Austin, 1.5 blocks from the Wheatsville Co-op. It opens at 10:00 AM and goes until 5:00-ish (basically, when it starts to get too dark to see anything). I'll be out there in my big tent o' feeps, so come by and say hello if you get a chance. It's also going on tomorrow (Sunday, Dec. 7), again starting at 10:00. Admission is freeeee!

Faucet Nautilus

You should obviously trust implicitly any feep who is offering you a drink of water from a tap over which they have control of the rate of flow.

I wasn't ... I didn't ... you can't prove anything!

Eared Eyestalk with Pumpkin Pie

I made a pie the other day, something I don't ordinarily do (and by "don't ordinarily do" I mean "have never done before until now"). Naturally, I had to take pictures. I guess I can't be too surprised that some feeps started showing up in the photos, for they are curious by nature and drawn to attention rays much as cats are. Were they jealous that I was taking pictures of something besides them? Or that I was having the audacity to bake something that is clearly not a feep? Or do they just like fresh pumpkin pie?

Goth Bunny

My first pass at making guinea pig feeps a few years ago turned out a bit more rabbit-like than pig-like. Luckily, feep taxonomy is fluid and a creature can be reassigned to a more appropriate category without much fuss. Bunny it is!

Blue Snapping Present Orneryment

It's the schmaltzy Xmas music everywhere you go that makes them turn to evil.

Evil Black Cat ACEO

This cat is stalking around outside somewhere even now, causing my cat to pace with great agitation as she searches for the best window from which to hiss at it.

Lizard Face Magnet

Not recommended for use on fridges with lots of insect magnets (unless you feel you have too many insect magnets and are looking to have a few disappear without comment).

New eBay Store feeps and Wheatsville Arts Festival

I've put up a handful of new feeps in the eBay Store (6 figurines and 1 necklace), but eBay has been doing a lot of upgrading of their site lately and I'm not sure how to do a filter of just those pieces. This link, however, should show you the new ones up at the top of the list with little suns next to the names:

New eBay Store Feeps

Also, eBay apparently no longer lets you pay by check or money order, I guess? It's all PayPal all the time. I'm not really sure what the deal is specifically, and I think most everyone who buys stuff from me mostly pays by PayPal anyway, but FYI the decision to stop accepting checks was eBay's, not mine.

Finally, the Wheatsville Arts Festival approacheth! It's happening Dec. 6-7, 2008, and I will be there once again with my tent o' feeps. Unlike years past, though, it will NOT be in the Wheatsville Co-Op parking lot, but rather in Adams Park, which is a block or two from the Co-Op (it's on 30th street behind the fire station). Anyway, I'm going to be feeping like mad over the next couple of weeks to prep for that. I don't know that I'm going to get any new listings up until after the show. If you are not able to make it to the festival but are planning to buy feeps for the holidays, I will try to get at least one more round of store updates done with enough padding to make sure everything can be shipped in plenty of time. So! There you have it.

Blue & Copper Chomper

Scaling a gourd is harrowing work, don't you know.

Green Squid Necklace

It's one way of making a feep-o-lantern, I guess.

Spiky Eyestalk Bird Monster

The Coyote Skull Hills are aptly named, and a favorite hiking destination of one-eyed, heron-like creatures.

You probably already suspected this to be true, but it is indeed always Halloween in Feeptown.

This raspberry is for my cat, who decided I didn't need sleep after all. SHE WAS SO WRONG. Zzzzz...

Goes best, obviously, with a dark, inky red.

Bull-Horned Slug

The bull-horned slug prepares to charge the microscopic matador at a terrifying speed of up to 3 inches per minute.

Gilded Bean Cat ACEO

I'm not actually sure what I titled this drawing originally, but I don't think it was "Gilded Bean Cat." And no, it definitely wasn't "Gelded Bean Cat," since I know some of you were thinking you might make that particular joke. I'm onto you, you know!

Sparkle Eyestalk

The Sparkle Eyestalk is already dressed for early 80s trendiness. Now all it needs is some roller skates and some quarters with which to play Pac Man.

Red Slug

For all it knows there could be granules of salt on that table left after a picnic, but our intrepid slug friend is a real risk-taker. Xtr3m3 slug!

Glowing Dinosaur

I imagine bioluminescence is not all that helpful when you're trying to evade predators at night. Possibly the cause of extinction for glowing dinos!
