Spiral Nightcap

It's a glaring-at-the-sun sort of morning (which is to say, I ran out of coffee).

Striped Tentacle Fish

Really, if I'd been thinking, I'd have given this fish a tentacle monocle. Oh well!

Red & Black Snake

Texas summer is in full gear, which means the snakes have been coming out to play. Yesterday I spent awhile watching one of these little slitherers climb a tree.

Panic Feep at the Computer

As you might recall, I've been working away at redesigning the feeps' home website. Well, I finally finished it and have launched Feeping Creatures 3.0! There's a ton of new content, so check it out.

Cardoon von Snoot

While many of the prickly pears around here do indeed produce purple fruits, it is not the case that von Snoots spontaneously generate from cacti.

Red Kitten

Because really, what the world needs is caffeinated cats.

Curly Squid

The Squid foreman inspects the carpenter ants' handiwork.

Purple Rat

Rats are not generally given over to sunning themselves on rocks, being nocturnal and all. Perhaps this rat is a bit of a day owl.

Stripe-Horned Round Monster

I think this feep is hinting at something by hanging out on the beach chair.

Bird Skull Ghost

Would possibly be a feature of cat nightmares, were there any scientific evidence to suggest that cats are capable of feeling guilt.

Lava Tentacle Twist

Selecting the skull for the "Alas, I knew him, Horatio" soliloquy. Coyote? Cat? Turtle? Or all three? Hmm. Decisions!

Taunting Devil

Sticks and shadows were made to be mocked.

Panic Feep with tools

I'm going to be at Houston Zine Fest this Saturday (May 16), which means I am in Panic Feep mode! Those tools in the background are what I use to sand and smooth the feeps after they've been cooked.

At any rate, if you're in Houston you should drop by the show on Saturday. Admission is Freeeeee!

Purple Cat Snake Wine Charm

Wine (I called it a Grenache in the dream, but it was actually a prosecco! Oh, you crazy, crazy dreamscapes) and cats both featured heavily in my dreams last night. I don't recollect any snakes, but there was a river, so maybe they were there and I just didn't see them.

Pinwheel Evil Eye Magnet

Nothing says "summer by the lake" like pinwheels. In this case, of course, the lake in question would be a lake of fire, but still. Summer!

Furry Ghost ACEO

The spirit of all the cat hair forever lost to the lint roller.

Green Eyestalk

Having no depth perception does make it a wee bit difficult to catch and eat fruit flies. And yet, one can still try.

Resting Dragon

In order to brew the sacred coffee elixir, you must first best the dragon who hoards the magic beans.

This feep often pauses to reflect on unusual things.

The Grapes of Wrath are particularly enraged by ripe bananas and garlic.

Feep Makara

When I was in Seattle recently I went to the Seattle Asian Art Museum, and one of the exhibits they had up was The Royal Paintings of Jodhpur, a series of paintings from the 17th through the 19th century, most featuring scenes from Hindu mythology. A number of the paintings featured the makara, an elephant-headed crocodile that doesn't look much like either an elephant or a crocodile:

(Detail from The Mandala of Shiva, 1827.)

What it did look like was something that needed to be feepified, so I decided to make one. And here are the results:

Conical Mollusc

Does this coffee taste tentacley to you?

Petri Pig

Little known fact: pigs can be cultivated in a petri dish, if what you want is really tiny bacon.

Blue & Purple Cat Snake

Do cat snakes eat rat snakes? If the behave anything like their mammalian counterparts, they just try really, really hard to ignore this thing that is intruding on their lap space.

Granny Tentacles

Sit down and listen to her tales of when she was a young larva.
