Happy Feepmas to Thee and Thine

Merry cluster of holidays that happen at the end of the year, y'all.

Coil Eel

Despite the bulbous eyes, this eel actually has poor eyesight and must navigate by taste.

Blue Coil Cyclops

If you lived here, you'd have granite counter tops. No roof or anything, but granite counter tops!

Raspberry Nightcap

This feep's name sounds like randomly-generated bot text, doesn't it?

Fire Cat Snake and raccoon tracks

The cats of my household are endlessly fascinated by the raccoons that make occasional appearances on the back porch. Thankfully, their only interactions are through panes of glass. The cats don't quite seem to understand that raccoons are lawless brigands who will cut you given half a chance.

Mustachioed Raspberry Nautilus

Oh, it's been that kind of a week. If this feep had a fist it would shake it, but failing that, it razzes the world.

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Swirled Sea Turtle

Just chillin' by the lagoon. Or, in this case, tiny spring-fed puddle (but to a feep-sized creature that's as good as a lagoon).

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Purple & Green Snat

This snat is thinking of hopping a train, but it gets dizzy at speeds over 2 miles per hour.

Monday, December 12, 2011

Bee-Striped Octopus

This feep is trying to lurk in the shadows, but it's a bit too sunny here.

Friday, December 9, 2011

Round Rattler

Just a friendly reminder, should you be considering giving the gift of feep this holiday season, that shipping times slow down at this time of year due to the general volume of mail being handled by the dear ol' USPS, so it's best to get your orders in soon to ensure a timely arrival. Head this way for your feeply needs:

Blue & Pink von Snoot

Been workin' on the railroad. You didn't know the tracks were maintained by tiny monsters, did you?

Road Feeps - Coil Horn Cyclops observes the George Washington Bridge

Viewed from Fort Tryon Park, it is the very bridge that takes one (and one's feeps) out of New York and into New Jersey, en route to Newark Airport, not but a couple of hours after this photo was taken. Adieu!

Road Feeps - Coil Horn Cyclops at the Cloisters in Manhattan

What to think about a door that is simply labeled "known point," and then tightly shut? One has to assume that, along with transporting the stones and artifacts of European cloisters to New York, they also inadvertently transported a few of the resident ghosts or demons. You know, the sorts of things that can't be destroyed, but have to be sealed with wards behind thick doors, and are spoken of only in hushed whispers for centuries. Oopsie!

Road Feeps - Coil Horn Cyclops at the Cloisters in Manhattan

A portcullis only really works, of course, if your average horde can't fit through the openings. Prepare to be overrun by tiny monsters, o Cloisters.

Friday, December 2, 2011

Road Feeps - Coil Horn Cyclops at the Cloisters in Manhattan

Evidently you need a portcullis to keep out the barbarian hordes from lower Manhattan.

New feeps in the Etsy shop

Also, for your edification, there are several new feeps in the Feeping Creatures Etsy Store, including the intrepid explorer of north Manhattan I've been featuring this week.

Road Feeps - Coil Horn Cyclops at the Cloisters in Manhattan

Nestled within Fort Tryon Park is a collection of buildings known as The Cloisters, a mashup of several medieval buildings imported from Europe by one of New York's eccentric rich people (one John D. Rockefeller, Jr., perhaps you've heard of him). There's a museum inside, but sadly we were there on a Monday and the museum is closed Mondays, so we had to content ourselves with wandering around the outside.

Road Feeps - Coil Horn Cyclops in Fort Tryon Park, Manhattan

This archway, just so you know, leads you to a parallel universe.

Road Feeps - Coil Horn Cyclops at Fort Tryon Park, Manhattan

The next several photos are of our intrepid little Coil Horn Cyclops friend running around Fort Tryon Park in upper Manhattan. It's an impressive landscape of quiet greenery in a city known mostly for its buildings and its bustle.

Road Feeps - Coil Horn Cyclops and art deco grate in Manhattan

This grate protects a public utility building in a section of Manhattan that was clearly built up in the 1920s. All the buildings around there have this kind of style. Makes one feel a bit as though one is walking through a certain Fritz Lang film.

Road Feeps - Orange Round with New York fauna

This feep manages to find a dwelling in Manhattan that's the right size for the price.

Road Feeps - Red & Black Coil Cyclops at Riverside Cathedral in Manhattan

Just around the corner from ol' Grant's place is this ornate edifice.

Road Feeps - Tentacle Larva at Grant's Tomb

It is, according to the posted information, the largest mausoleum in the United States. We got there right as it was closing, so only had but a moment to peek inside. It was rather interesting to contrast Grant's Tomb with the mausoleums in Mt. Auburn Cemetery (where we had just been), and which until now had seemed impressively elaborate and ornate.

No, for this you gotta be more than just rich.

Road Feeps - Von Snoot and statue in Sakura Park, Riverside, NYC

That's the Riverside Cathedral peeking through in the background. I don't know who this statue represents. It was cordoned off with caution tape, and a sign alerted one of an apparently vicious wasp nest. So the feeps and I observed from afar.

Road Feeps - Feep Snail in Manhattan

The snail wishes to know what these apartments rent for, but is mildly afraid of large numbers, and thus refrains.

Road Feeps: Bat Necklace looms over Manhattan

Swooping down over Grant's Tomb and Riverside cathedral to appropriate accompaniment.

Road Feeps - Purple von Snoot in Salem, MA

Let us bid adieu to Salem (though there are yet more photos for future editions of Road Feeps Redux) with this parting shot of an old building in the harbor area. Next up: New York!

Wednesday, November 9, 2011

Road Feeps - Green & Black Coil Cyclops in Salem, MA

A (presumably) decorative urn adorning someone's fence. Unless that's where the bad relatives go.

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Road Feeps - Orange Cat in Salem harbor

White not a huge fan of large bodies of water (for obvious reasons), the feep cat nevertheless enjoys a city that is covered in cat iconography to go with all the witchiness.

Road Feeps - Purple Coil Cyclops in a horn in Salem, MA

This was part of a display along the pier area of downtown Salem. I'm honestly not sure what this thing is (the horn, I mean, not the monster). I could have read the informational sign that was there next to it, but obviously I didn't, so now I must suffer in ignorance.

Road Feeps - Purple Coil Cyclops with Salem, MA fire alarm

This feep is prepared in case an antique fire breaks out.

Road Feeps - Blue Horn Blob on Salem, MA hitching post

Don't forget to tether your feep, lest it wander off and fall prey to feep thieves.

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

Road Feeps - Bat Necklace at Mount Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge, MA

And now, back to the feep bat's tour of Mount Auburn Cemetery. The place was founded in 1831, so the monuments are newer than the ones the feeps were looking at in Salem, but the ones at Mt. Auburn frequently tend toward the elaborate and ornate.

Halloween Feep-o-Lantern

It is, of course, time for the annual showing of the feep-o-lantern. This year's offering is something of a mad scientist type who just drank the transformation concoction:

Road Feeps - Bat Necklace in Mount Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge, MA

I don't think this urn-like thing is an actual urn, just decoration for a monument. But I got distracted by some ducks in the pond and didn't read the inscription on the nearby obelisk, so perhaps it is an urn after all.

Road Feeps - Cat Slug in Salem, MA Cemetery

I believe we have found the headstone for Frankenstein's Monster.

Monday, October 24, 2011

Road Feeps - Red & Black Tentacle Larva in Salem, MA cemetery

Sure, cemeteries are filled with ghosts and ghouls, but one must stop and appreciate the little horrors as well.

Road Feeps - Red & Black Snat in Salem, MA Graveyard

I am back from New York Comic Con and the wilds of the northeast, and I have a ton of pictures to prove it. I'm still sorting through them all, but since we're in the run-up to Halloween I figured I should go ahead and start posting some of the pictures I took in some of the very picturesque cemeteries in Salem and Boston. Let us begin with Salem, shall we?

New York Comic Con next weekend

For those of you who actually read the texty bits of this blog, my sprained hand is doing much better. Yesterday I engaged in my first round of feepmaking since the injury. The purpose was to get some stock together for New York Comic Con next weekend, where you will find the feeps ensconced at the Prism Comics booth.

I don't have pictures of the new feeps yet, but my plan for next week is to take lots of pictures of them around New York and Boston, so when I return I'll have some fresh new Road Feeps pix to share with you.

So! If you're in NYC next weekend (Oct 13-16), do come to the show. Otherwise, see you here online when I get back.

ArmadilloCon and hand update

Just checking in to let you know that ArmadilloCon is this weekend, and I'll be there with my table o' feeps.

My hand is, unfortunately, still hurt. I sprained it pretty badly, and since it's my dominant hand it's very difficult to avoid using it altogether. Sprains take an annoyingly long time to heal, so it could be a few weeks before I'm back to normal. So I figured I'd take this opportunity to post a get well card I made a few years ago.

Squip and Service Advisory

Sorry my posting has been sporadic. I hurt my hand and spending too long on the computer makes it worse, so I have been trying to limit my typing time. Hopefully things shall return to normal next week.

Conical Mollusc

They use their powerful tentacles to pry open laptops.

Dominican Feeps - Snat on a Log on a Beach

I took this photo because I wanted to -- ha ha -- snat-a-log this event! Ha! Oh, my.

Dominican Feeps - Cyclops and Hibiscus

We are amused to discover that one of the very common floral inhabitants of the DR is possessed of a feep-like snoot.
