Red Glow Dragon

The rent is very reasonable, but I'm not sold on the view.

Purple Cat Slug

There's something eerie about this mountain range ....

Striped Tentacle Onion

Our hapless protagonist can't shake the feeling that danger lurks somewhere nearby.

Squid Cyclops in the Haunted House

Yes, I am already getting excited for Halloween.

So, this feep, funny story. Remember all those pictures from the pier in San Diego? (If you don't, hit the "Road Feeps" tag over there in the tag list.)

This one was supposed to be in that set, but I dropped it and its eyeball popped off and rolled into the Pacific Ocean. I have broken feeps before by dropping them during a photo shoot, but never have I lost an eyeball to the world's largest body of water.

So I had to make a new eyeball for it and glue it on. What you see here is Eyeball Mk. II.

Road Feeps Redux - Snoot Bird and Surfers

All these new feeps, and I haven't had time to photograph them yet. Hopefully that'll happen today before I leave for the con. At any rate, you'll be seeing them soon enough.

Ren Feeps - Tentacle Cat with Goblin

I have many new feeps sitting around waiting to be photographed, and soon there will be even more. For ArmadilloCon starts tomorrow!

Furry Green Dragon

A new piece I finished this week, and which I shall have for sale at ArmadilloCon. It kind of reminds me of the Grinch, though I wasn't trying for any similarity. Nevertheless, I am unable to deny the Seuss/Jones influence in my life.

Purple Turtle

I wish I could say it's a slow morning, but it ain't. This week seems likely to be jam-packed with insanity.

Panic Feep packs for the show

ArmadilloCon starts this Friday, which means it's time to go into unrestrained panic mode. Wheeeee!

Green Cat Demon Wine Charm

Let's just say I'm feeling like wine is especially demonic this morning.

Von Snoot Snake Necklace

While I am anxious about the insane number of things I need to get done before the end of the month, I'm also very excited to see August go. Bring on Fall, and temperatures that are not in the triple-digits.

Green & Magenta Heron-Dragon

ArmadilloCon is but a week away! If that's your annual feep sighting, let it be known that I will have a great many new things.

Blue Squid Wine Charm

Dreamt last night that there was a cluster of trees outside my house that were clearly haunted - they had knotholes that suggested eyes and mouths, and all the branches were reaching out like arms in the same direction (toward the door, presumably to ensnare anyone who emerged).

It was one of those dreams where I was sad to wake up and find out it wasn't true. Sigh. No haunted trees in the front yard for me.

Toothy Nautilus

When you're very small, you can get lost in the forest with but a single tree.

Eyeball Squid Necklace

A small pile of feep cutouts await being turned into buttons. Meanwhile, my printer ran out of one of the ink tanks, and of course it was the one tank I don't have a replacement for on-hand.

Button Set the First

Observe the fruits of my labor from this weekend! I have here six different feep buttons (the idea here is that they'll be $1 each or 6 for $5, y'see). My success rate has gone up to about 90%, so I'm definitely getting the hang of this process.

Sunday, August 15, 2010

Black & White Dragon

Well, button-making turns out to have a bit of a learning-curve. My efforts yesterday yielded 16 successes and 8 failures. Thankfully, most of the failures were clustered at the beginning of the session, so I should be able to get my hit rate above 66% in the future.

Saturday, August 14, 2010

Green & Brown Slug Magnet

I'm'a be makin' some buttons today. We'll see how they turn out.

Friday, August 13, 2010

Wedge Squid Necklace

Working away on button designs. Most of the existing feep art is rectangular, which can be a bit of a challenge to adapt to a circle.

One-Eyed Cat Slug

Looking out the window, hoping the clouds stick around rather than burn off. The feeps don't mind the heat (what with being baked in an oven and all), but I could do with a little less August in my Texas.

Copper Curl Orneryment

A snarl of deadlines is keeping me from playing with the new button maker. Grumph! Soon ... soon ...

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

Rufus Blanco von Snoot

I ordered a button-maker, that I might commence with the creation of feep buttons. It arrived yesterday, which means I will be busy kerchunking out a few buttons here real soon now. If you're going to ArmadilloCon, you can expect to see the results there.

Pink Feep Trio

I can only assume the Sprite is shocked by the nefarious plans the cat and the ghost are unveiling, but it will likely go along anyway.

Indigo Tentacle Twist

Tentacle Twists are not typically creatures of the morning, but have been known to make an exception for Sunday brunch.

Green Toothy Ghost

Got my confirmation yesterday for a table at Austin Comic Con, which is basically the same show I did in Dallas a couple of times. Only now they've decided to make it more convenient for me and moved it closer to home. I ain't gonna complain about that.

Road Feeps - The Squip and the Sea

Our final Road Feep for the San Diego trip shall leave us looking wistfully into the ocean, and remembering the 72º daytime weather (Austin, meanwhile is facing down 103º today).

Road Feeps - Coil Squid at the San Diego beach

Our hard-working sea monster takes a relaxing break from terrorizing the unsuspecting swimmers.

Road Feeps - BirdSkullFace on the pier at San Diego

According to the locals, the weather was lousy on this particular day.

Road Feeps - Ski Hat Cyclops at San Diego Comic Con

My table was across from a rest area, so I saw many Darth Vaders and Batmans taking a corn dog break.

Road Feeps - Squip by the rocks by the sea

I don't know this for sure, but a squip seems like it may well be the aquatic life stage of some sort of metamorphosing creature.

Road Feeps - Turtle seeks sustenance in San Diego

Plenty of palm trees, but I saw no coconuts. Wrong season, or a careful culling to avoid random conks on the noggin by miniature cannon balls?
