Feeps on tumblr

I've started a tumblr page for the Feeps. I feel like tumblr might be a better fit for the type of photo blogging I do, so I'm giving it a try. I'll be posting several new feep pix over there, including a little photo essay starring that mysterious new feep up above, so if you'd like to follow along just click that link.

Skeleton Cat Monster - Feeping Creatures monster figurine

Here at the House of Feep, it's pretty much Halloween year round. That said, I don't often make Halloween-specific feeps for some reason. My goal this October is to rectify that, so I've been working away on ghosts and vampires and skull monsters.

Of course, I'm going to be out of town for, like, the first half of October, more or less, so posting will continue to be light for awhile. But my plan, my hope, is to spend the couple of weeks in the run-up to Halloween posting tons of pictures of the monsters I've been working on. So! Fear not, there will be many a feep in the near future.

Glow-in-the-Dark Snoot Vulture - Feeping Creatures Monster Figurine

I am back from California and the convention, and I have brought the inevitable post-flight/con cold home with me. So I'm moving a little slow. BUT! I am getting several new feeps listed in the Etsy shop this week, so check in periodically to see the new faces.

Feeping Creatures Curly Turtle Face Monster Figurine

Prepping for another convention. This time it's Comikaze Expo in Los Angeles, which is happening this very weekend, Sept. 15-16. This will be the feeps' first foray into LA!

Feeping Creatures - Coil Cyclops Monster Necklace

Sorry posting has been so sporadic lately. I keep getting attacked by deadline monsters. They can be rather pesky and persistent, don't you know. But they tend to leave money behind once they've been defeated, so one can't really complain too much.

Feeping Creatures monster onesie - Oddsbaldistone

This is what I've been working on lately. Feep onesies! You can see a whole bunch more in my Etsy store.

Fiery Tentacle Twist - Feeping Creatures monster figurine

Waiting for random knights to show up and storm the castle can be lonely, dull work. Hence, the typical tentacle twist composes angsty poetry to pass the time.

Waiting here in solitude,
Upon the loneliness I brood.
Guarding treasures is my lot,
But such trinkets please me not.
I yearn only to be free
of self-imposed captivity!

As you may have gleaned, the tentacles are really just for show. The monster intends to slay the hero with bad verse.

Striped Snat - Feeping Creatures monster figurine

I'm back from Space City Con. It was a great show! I'm a bit worn out, though ... not sure how THAT happened (gaming until 1:30 in the morning might have had something to do with it).

Feeps at Space City Con: August 10-12, 2012

 I'm off to Houston for Space City Con. This will be my first show in Houston in three years, so if you're in H-town this weekend, stop by and say hi!

Thursday, August 2, 2012

Snoot Bird - Feeping Creatures monster figurine

Probably evolved in Madagascar or somewhere like that. This may be true of all feeps, for all I know.

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

Tentacle Barnacle - Feeping Creatures monster figurine

In just a couple of weeks I will be setting up a table full o' feeps at Houston's Space City Con. It's their first year, and it sounds like it's going to be great! Also, this will be my first visit to Houston in, I think, three years. Come on out, Houston, and support your newest gaming con!

Squid Twist - Feeping Creatures monster necklace

Good news, everyone! The Feeping Creatures Store on Etsy is now set up to accept credit cards directly. This means you don't need to use PayPal if you don't want to. Should make for faster checkout, too, if I am not mistaken. If you give it a try, let me know what you think!

Samurai Feep o' Lantern - Feeping Creatures monster figurine

Posting may be a bit sporadic over the next few weeks - lots of projects, and a bit of travel. I'll update here as often as I can, but don't be surprised if it ain't every day.

Also, damn. Look at how much crappier my photos with the old camera were. But hey, if you're not improving here and there you're doing something wrong.

Striped Snail - Feeping Creatures monster figurine

Clearly this is one of those snails that, as it grows, must find bigger and bigger pieces of discarded candy to live in.

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Feeping Creatures Purple Nautilus Monster Necklace

That look of concern - I suppose if you're on the lam, it's tricky to make a break for it when you're worried about your cord catching on something. Of course, it's entirely possible this feep isn't on the lam at all. It might just be horrified at the amount of cat hair I had to Photoshop out of this picture (I even lint-rollered first, dammit).

Coil Worm Moat Monster - Feeping Creatures monster figurine

At least if you fall in and get devoured, your doom will greet you with a friendly face.

Blue & Green Cyclops - Feeping Creatures Monster Figurine

That's always a good sign, when you peer out over the ramparts of your castle and give a look of surprise and alarm.

Friday, June 15, 2012

Horned Razzer - Feeping Creatures monster figurine

I dare you to stick your tongue on that skull. I double-dog dare ya.

Thursday, June 14, 2012

Feeping Creatures Sea Serpent necklace

You will never be lost at sea with this handy talisman, I tell you what. (Unless being eaten by a sea monster counts as "lost"? I dunno. Seems like you'd know where you were - in the belly of a monster!)

Brown Turtle in the Lego pool - Feeping Creatures monster figurine

A polymer clay turtle prefers water made of plastic, natch.

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Purple & Green Snat - Feeping Creatures monster figurine

Stick with the hardwood, or put in carpet? Decisions, decisions. (The conundrum, of course, being that it is more delightful to eject hairballs onto carpet and other difficult-to-clean objects, but the snail portion of the snat would rather glide over a nice, smooth surface.)

Eyeball Leviathan - Feeping Creatures monster figurine

Something's gotta take on the task of cleaning up any spilled sailors. If the spill happens because the monster "accidentally" bumped the boat, well, whatayagonnado?

Coil Horn Cyclops - Feeping Creatures Monster Figurine

One of my projects of the last few months has been to improve my product photos for Etsy. In the past I've eschewed plain white backgrounds because they're kinda boring, but lately I've had to admit that they add a lot of clarity to a thumbnail-sized feep, which is what most people are browsing on Etsy. So I've given in and started doing more white background shots. I'll continue to have to funky scenes, though, for this blog and for Etsy images that aren't the primary product image.

Black & Blue Striped Tentacle Twist - Feeping Creatures monster figurine

When sneaking into the basements of Lego castles, it is best to be on your guard for slithery, squiggly things that may be lurking amidst the bricks.

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

Purple & Blue Spiral Cyclops - Feeping Creatures Monster Figurine

They said there were spiders and dragons preparing to storm the castle, but I don't see any ...

Tuesday, June 5, 2012

Snoot Bird - Feeping Creatures Monster Figurine

When checking out a new abode, it's always a good idea to make sure there's plenty of snoot clearance. Ya don't want to be bumping your schnoz the whole time.

Coil Worm - Feeping Creatures Monster Figurine

First off, sorry about my prolonged absence. I've been dealing with health issues that, while not life-threatening or anything, definitely preclude the creation of new feeps. Things are slowly getting better, so I'm slowly getting back into my various work habits, as I'm able.

 I haven't made any new figurines in awhile, but I have been going back and re-photographing various feeps with my new camera, so there's actually quite a backlog of photos to post despite everything. Here's one of 'em.

Feeping Creatures Crinkleneck Cat Demon Necklace

Who wouldn't want to wear a memento of ol' Cousin Crinkleneck? Sure, he may not have been the prettiest, but gosh darnit, he was ... well, he was the crinkliest. Etsy listing

Service Advisory

Sorry I haven't been posting much lately. I'm having a really bad tendinitis flare-up and need to stay off the computer as much as possible. Hoping things will be better soon and I can resume your regularly-scheduled feep delivery.

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Feeping Creatures Monster Marble necklace

Sometimes you just need to be serenaded by a little yellow-eyeballed monster, ya know?

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Feeping Creatures Tentacle Coil monster figurine

My guess is that this creature reproduces by budding - once the number of tentacles becomes cumbersome, a little batch of them will detach and a wee new tentacle horror is born.

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Feeping Creatures Pink Fuzzy Baby Monster onesie

I'm at that age where all my friends are having kids, so over the last couple of years I've cranked out quite a few feep onesies. I finally managed to make a few more than I need, and have put them up in the Feeping Creatures Etsy Store.

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Feeping Creatures Granite Ccylops monster figurine

Clearly this cyclops did not get the memo and is horrified by cobweb-covered ramshackle dwellings. I guess some monsters just prefer their lairs to be tidy.

Monday, March 12, 2012

Feeping Creatures Dragon Heron monster figurine

Dragon herons are partial to grilled fish for what I think are obvious reasons.

Friday, March 9, 2012

Feeping Creatures Covered in Eyeballs monster figurine

I have at long last finished listing the last of the new feeps in the Feeping Creatures Etsy store. Click through and "favorite" them if you feel so inclined!

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

Feeping Creatures Springtailed Cyclops figurine

Even monsters have to decide where in their labyrinths to put the settee.

Tuesday, March 6, 2012

Feeping Creatures Bat Demon Orneryment

I'm in the gradual process of getting new feeps listed in the ol' Etsy Store. Look for more to appear over the course of the week.

Friday, March 2, 2012

Feeping Creatures Orange Von Snoot figurine

Oh, oh! I finally, FINALLY got a camera with halfway decent macro capabilities. This is very good news for the feeps, very good news indeed.

STAPLE! this weekend

It is once again time for Austin's own Independent Media Expo! This weekend, March 3-4, you will find the feeps at the Marchesa Hall. More deets on the STAPLE! website. Hope to see you there!

Feeping Creatures Striped Snail Monster Figurine

Sorry about the sporadic posting of late. I'm in the midst of finishing up a rather massive project with a rather looming deadline. I have a stack of feep photos I haven't even had a chance to sort through yet. But! I shall resume normal posting soon.

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Feeping Creatures Fuzzy Bat Orneryment

Because you never know when you'll need to adorn your surroundings with bats.

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Feeping Creatures Dragon Slug figurine

You know how a legless lizard looks kind of like a snake, except it's not, it's just a lizard whose legs evolved away? Well, this dragon is sort of like that. No legs, no wings, just horn-like antennae. We may presume on the inside there are vestigial wing and leg structures, but I advise against cutting the dragon open in order to find out. Dragons are not known to take kindly to people who brandish sharp objects at them, and such interactions are prone to end in tears. And flames.

Feeping Creatures Green Razzer Monster

The phrase "blowing a raspberry" has its origins in cockney rhyming slang. "Raspberry tart" = "sounds like a fart." Charming, no?

Friday, February 10, 2012

Feeping Creatures Tentacle Barnacle Figurine

This barnacle is known to affix itself to nauseatingly cute creatures, thereby restoring balance and harmony to the universe. It nourishes itself upon the moment sappy sentiment gives way to perplexed horror, as the viewer of the original nauseatingly cute creature shifts from "Awww!" to "Ewww!"
