ABC Feeps - Lamar & Mopac

"L" and "M" were the last feeps to get names, because I was having a really hard time finding a pair of words I liked that started with those letters. I finally went with an insider nod to Austin.

BigFoot ScrewHead

I suppose ScrewThread would actually be more accurate for the shape of the thing ... ScrewThreadHead ... odd how often I wind up arguing semantics with the feeps.

Purple Curl-Horn Blob

It's true, some feeps live out in the sticks. Or, rather, amongst the sticks.

Thin Tentacles

Three-eyed feeps are somewhat rare, primarily because I am lazy and rolling out three eyeballs and making them all the same size is more of a pain than rolling out two or one.

Purple Raspberry Sprite

Backdrop provided by my cat, who is also trying to help me type even now. Such a giver.

Blue Turtle

I spent some time yesterday on Turtle Rescue Detail - found a sizable turtle a long way from the creek and wound up having to carry her quite a ways to get to a part with deep enough water for her. She didn't seem to think it was the most fun she'd ever had.

ABC Feeps - Kickshaws

And thusly thus unto the letter "K." Where will it all end???

Spiky Chomper

For a creature covered in spikes, this feep seems awfully hesitant. Perhaps it prepares to wade into a sea of balloons, and happens to hate loud noises?

Tyrian Von Snoot

Much like my cat, the Von Snoot feep cannot resist staring intently out the window at birds.

Purple Big Mouth Monster

Some feeps are large of mouth, and prone to saying things they later regret.

Not this one, though. I mean, physically, yes, but ... oh, never mind.

Happy Marble Blob

Design By Feeps, a new house remodeling show, suggests paving your front walkway with rusty chains.

Happy Green Floppy Ears

I am not actually quite sure, to be honest, what distinguishes an "ear" from a "horn" in the land of feep. I fear it may be somewhat arbitrary.

Green & Purple Taunting Devil

The taunting devil does not care for decorative shrubbery!

Angler Sea Monster

I know I've posted a (different) picture of this feep before, but the scenery wasn't as Bottom of the Sea as this one.

ABC Feeps - Hiram, Ignatz, & Javier Sluggenthorpe

Three letters today? Oh, how I spoil you. But you can't really split up the Sluggenthorpes, now can you? I mean, just look at those "faces."

Purple Corkscrew

Looks a bit villainous to be riding off into the sunset. Perhaps it's preparing to ride off into the darkness?

Spiky Sprite

Maybe there is coffee in this cave? Please?

Shirt Feep

A few years ago, when I was working on the design for the feep drawing I was going to put on my silkscreen t-shirts, I tried to draw something that looked sort of like something I'd sculpt. I'd never actually made a feep exactly like that, though, so of course I had to turn around and sculpt a feep based on the shirt feep.

These days I use the feep drawings to create monsters that would be difficult to sculpt - might as well work to the strengths of the given medium - and I will eventually come out with a new silkscreen design that's more 2D-focused. But this one has served me well for some time, and certainly has a canonical feep look to it.

Purple Cat at the Playground

Looks sort of like something out of a platform game, doesn't it. And we already knew it was all lava down below.

ABC Feeps - Fnerp & Glerp

Ever onward through the alphabet, with our next destination being Fnerp & Glerp Watterson.

Feep Pig

A couple of months ago I was commissioned to make a feep pig, and this was the result. That's not a petri dish, by the way: it's sitting in a lid because the glaze I put on it was still drying as I was taking these pictures, so I needed to be able to move it without touching it.

Green Duck

No jokes about green eggs & spam, please.

Pink & Black Curly Sprite

Okay, that does it. I have got to talk to the landlord about the size of the cockroaches in this place.

Concerned Monster Magnet

This feep reminds me, I really should get my taxes done.

ABC Feeps - Epizoon

Are we at "E" already? Why, yes we are. "Epizoon" essentially means "parasite," though I think we'd all agree that there's no harm in giving up a little blood for such a cute iggle monster, no?

Blue Glow Dino

Perhaps this dinosaur would be kind enough to consume all the oak pollen that is currently drenching Austin. Wheeze.

Speckled Grey Slug Magnet

I haven't made any feep magnets for awhile. I should probably do that, huh. Another thing to add to the list ....

Red & Yellow Dragon

As the cow bone in this photo can attest, feeps can eat more than it seems like they should be able to in one sitting.

(Okay, the bone is actually from a dog treat. Feeps only eat processing power!)

ABC Feeps - Castlereagh & Demonax

Onward to C and D. The family portrait mat I was putting all these monsters into only had 20 holes, so a few monsters had to double- or triple-up in order to fit the whole alphabet.
