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).

Cucumber Snoot

And now it's time for everyone's favorite heartwarming holiday tale, The Search for the Feepiest Gourd.

(The exciting conclusion is here.)

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.

Razzing Red Nautilus

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.

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!

The Fire Dragon is quite busy this fall, gathering and storing up maidens for the winter.

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!

Dragon Unicorn

I was recently commissioned to draw my version of a unicorn. As I was drawing I was reminded of an observation I'd read at one point, put forth by illustrator Roger Dean. He noted how dragons in fantasy illustrations typically have horse heads. As I drew the unicorn's head I realized that, in fact, that's more or less how I'd go about drawing a dragon head as well. So when it came time to color the unicorn I decided to go with a dragon theme.

You can't tell from the scan (except in the whitish noise in some sections), but I also put a sheen of pearlescent ink over the unicorn so the scales would be sparkly (a unicorn really should be sparkly, I feel).

Blue Candy Cane Orneryment

I figure if all of retail land is going to annoy me (me personally!) with garish Christmas displays, I can annoy the internet with photos of monster ornaments. Sorry, internet!

Chopper doesn't need arms and legs to ride a motorcycle. So there!

(I'm sure all the baddest bikers say "so there." It just sounds right.)

Ball Python Cat Snake

Much like both cats and ball pythons, this cat snake undoubtedly curls up into a tight little ball when sleeping.

Purple & Blue Cat

This is a pretty accurate representation of how my cat feels about daylight savings time. Apparently I am to go by her clock, not mine, and WHY AM I NOT UP YET. YOW YOW YOW.

Sea Serpent silkscreen print

Back in 2002 I did a series of silkscreen prints of this sea serpent - the silkscreen consisted of the black outline, and I would then hand-color each sea serpent individually. I screened onto several different kinds of paper (this one is on bristol board). Then I packed them up so I could move, and they went into the Mover's Black Hole: you know you have something somewhere, you're just not sure where. Well, I finally found them again not too long ago, and this blue & gold serpent is one of them.
