Coil Snootbird

Gonna see if I can get a few more feeps made this week and up in the Etsy store. Will it actually happen? Who can say!

Coil Barnacle

Fence barnacles: one of the hazards of living somewhere humid.

Blue Ghost Squid

The Ghost of Squidmas Past takes a short break from haunting Victorian misers.

Raspberry Nautilus

I made my parents watch Zombieland last night, as I felt it was an important part of their cinematic education. Today my mom attempts to eat my brains. This is the thanks I get for trying to help.

Pit Crew Tentacle Twist

A one-monster chop shop for all your car-repair needs.

Blue & Orange Von Snoot

Austin doesn't really do iconic autumnal vistas, so this is about the best I can do for a fall-themed photo (on short notice, anyway).

Squid Twist

Now here's a puzzle for the feepologist: is this tentacle twist experiencing convergent evolution with a squid, or is it perhaps engaging in a bit of mimicry in order to fool predators?

Black & Red Tentacle Mollusc

I updated the Feeping Creatures Etsy Store yesterday with a bunch of new listings, including new figurines and new original art. Just so's ya know!

Coil Twist

This seems to be a relative of the classic tentacle twist feep, but clearly branched off at some point. Must have evolved in an environment that required more eyeball protection.

Cuttlefish Squid

You might think you're looking at its front end, but you can never be sure.

Green & Purple Upright Tentacle Twist

As yet, it is unclear whether this is a different species of tentacle twist, or if this is merely the common version sitting in a different position.

Blue & Copper Tentacle Twist

Kato Polyclay works better for making tentacle twists than Premo does, so I've been playing with some new designs. This, of course, is the Tentacle Twist Classic, but shortly you shall see what it has evolved into ....

Orange Cat agog over feep merch at the Oasis

So, the exciting announcement I promised:

The Oasis Gift Shop, which is attached to The Oasis restaurant on Lake Travis, now carries feep mugs, shot glasses, and buttons. If things go well, I'll be adding new items in the coming months, including coasters, tiles, and pillows (!!). The Oasis Gift Shop features a great many other items by local artists, so if you're in Austin you should stop by sometime.

Horned Slug

I should, if all goes according to plan, have an exciting announcement for you tomorrow. If all doesn't go according to plan, forget I said anything.

Duck-billed Eel

Much like a platypus, it's hard to know how to classify this particular feep. Sea monster? Bird? Probably a bit of both.

Monday, November 15, 2010

Coil Nightcap

The show is done, and I have three feeps left. I guess I need to get started on making some more, eh?

Halloween Snat and Austin Comic Con Madness

This show is officially insane! I really had no idea what to expect, since this is the first year it's been in Austin (Wizard World Texas used to be in Dallas, for those of you keeping score). I'd done the Dallas show a couple of times, which had ranged from meh to really good. But the Austin incarnation is officially my biggest sales bonanza ever, and there's still a whole day left to go.

This means I will have to hit the ground running to get a bunch of new feeps made for online holiday sales. Not the worst of problems to have, really. And it means I get to make more Snats, one of my favorite designs to do.

Snoot Bird Silhouette

Walter Koenig came by my table yesterday at Austin Comic Con. He was just generally browsing, mind you, and didn't really stop, so it's not quite as exciting as it may sound. :)

But it's the sort of randomness one encounters at these things.

Blue Squip

Austin Comic Con starts today! This feep, plus many others, will be making its debut at the show.

Thursday, November 11, 2010

Feathered Eyestalk

Today I go forth to pick up my restock of mugs and shirts, and then head down to the Convention Center to set up for Austin Comic Con. Madness awaits!

Green Coil Cyclops

Austin Comic Con is nearly upon us! The show starts Friday, Nov. 12th, and I shall have oh, so many feeps to show you.

I'm not saying it's going to be Monotreme Week here at Feep o' the Morning, but once I realized how to make a duck bill I guess I did go a little crazy.

Making a feep platypus was harder than it might seem. There's always something a bit more difficult about making a feep version of an animal that's essentially already a living feep.

Duck-Billed Tentacle Mollusc

Is it a monotreme, or something even stranger? Science has decided it is a little bit afraid to find out.

Sunday, November 7, 2010

Coil Cyclops

Totally gonna take pictures of new feeps today. Yep.

Grapes of Wrath

Finally turned on the heat for the first time this fall (no, it didn't snow, but waking up to a 60-degree house reminded me of living in Boston).

Grinning Blob Keychain

I've actually got quite a host of new feeps accruing, but I need to get them photographed before you can see them. My plan is to get that taken care of this weekend.

Von Snoot Orneryment

One of these days, I swear, I'm going to take pictures of some orneryments hanging from an actual Xmas tree.

Wednesday, November 3, 2010

Wedge Squid Necklace

New feeps are on their way, squirming and squiggling out of the clay.

Tuesday, November 2, 2010

Curly Snoot Bird

Austin Comic Con approaches! Time to crank the ol' feepin' machine into high gear.

Coil Squid

Now that Halloween is done, I return you to the usual programming: pictures of monsters.
