Bizarro Holiday Greetings!

For those of you who may not comprehend the Bizarro language, he is saying he actually DOES wish you a Merry Christmas. See? I know, it's a very complex language barrier to break through. But once you get used to it, it's really not so bad.

Rubber Chicken Apocalypse!

I worked on this one for quite awhile. My goal? To create a poster for the most absurd movie concept I could imagine. Dracula? Check. Wolfman? Check. Zombie horde, gorilla with a funny hat, plus sultry-looking female? Check check check. Wait, I almost forgot the giant rubber chicken brandishing an M-16 and a Rambo-grade knife! Ok, check.

I kinda want to see this movie now.

Transylvania Postcard!

Ever wonder what a postcard sent from the far eastern land of Dracula's birthplace would look like? Let your heart be at rest and wonder no more!

I most enjoyed creating the little vampire boy. He just seems so joyous and content to be a blood-sucking aberration of nature. And what exactly are the contents of his red "ice cream" cone? I shudder to imagine.

Monstrous Rubber Ducks!

I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything, but the summer has kept me pretty busy. However, since it is nearing that very special time of year when I hit my "sweet spot" and my various monster drawings are momentarily in style, I thought I would post some new stuff. First up, some bath toys with a Universal Monsters influence.

Growing up, I would have loved to have had little guys like this to play with in the tub. They would have made the daily drudgery of bath time much more enjoyable. Alas, I had to settle for a rubber duck who was just plain ol' dull yellow. At least I had a plastic shark to liven things up.

New Strato-Boy Cover

This is going to be the cover for a new batch of Strato-Boy comics I'm putting together. I'll post the new comic pages as soon as I complete them. I know all five of you Strato-Boy fans out there are waiting with the keenest of anticipation for the next installment. Let your hearts be strengthened! The best is yet to come! Or maybe it's already passed. Not sure yet.

Tiny Avengers

I'm not sure what my inspiration was behind this. I guess sometimes a guy just feels like drawing some tiny cartoon superheroes.

New Comics

Here's a few pages of a new comic strip I've been working on. What do you get when you add together a talking duck, a dull alien, and an excitable little robot on wheels? Eh, I don't know. . . you decide. Also, there is an angry monkey who wears one of those spinner caps. No cartoon is complete without monkeys.

Monster Love

I like how this one turned out. And nothing says "love" to me like a shambling green monster and a pasty woman with bee hive hair.

Revenge of the Creature!

Here's a new Creature drawing I created recently. First, black and white. . .

Then color. . .

And just for kicks, here's a color-only experiment. . .

Now some folks might misinterpret the Gill Man's outstretched arms as a sign of hostility; on the contrary, I like to think he is reaching out for love and acceptance. Can't you see the hint of a shimmering tear in his glazed, bulbous fish eyes? Maybe throughout all three Creature films, all he needed was a hug. That's what all that kidnapping of females must have been about! Yeah, that's it.

Wolf Man and Friends

I drew this one for a Wolf Man-themed art contest on ain'

Alas, I did not win. I didn't even place as a finalist! I guess mine wasn't "photoshoppy" enough. Oh well. Do not mourn for me! I will carry on and live to fight (or draw) another day.

Some of the finalists were pretty good though. You can view them all here.

Frankenstein, Collected!

If you've spent any time on my blog at all, it's probably become excruciatingly apparent to you that I tend to draw Frankenstein alot. It seems that when I pick up a pen or pencil and decide to doodle, the first thing to always spring forth from my hand is some goofy version of Frankie. So looking back through some of my drawings, I decide to collect the best ones from the past few years and throw them together in this sweet little collage.

I've got a soft spot for that stupid Frankenquack in the bottom left.

A new picture of Frankie. 'Cause no one can ever get enough of that green monster goodness!

Monkey vs Robot

I had this idea, and thought it would be fun to draw. It would probably make a good t-shirt too. Here's three different versions:

There's got to be at least five or maybe even six people in the world who would wear a shirt like this. That includes me.

Creature Memorabilia

So I decided to try my hand at some photography and layout with Creature From the Black Lagoon memorabilia as the subject. Nerdy enough for you? Oh it gets better, my friend.

True Creature collectors will recognize the 1997 Burger King Creature figure in the upper left hand corner. I also shot the picture of Neca's Creature bobblehead on the right. My personal favorite item is the beach towel at the bottom left. I unearthed this little treasure one day when I discovered it in the back of my grandpa's linen closet!

As a teenager, my grandpa saw the Creature films during their original theatrical run. I suppose he liked them enough that he decided to purchase this beach towel whenever he came upon it. I guess the real lesson to be learned here is that you never know what amazing or bizarre things you might dig out of a closet at your grandparents' house.

There is also a very cool post about all things Creature related over at Random Acts Of Geekery, and he features this same beach towel.

Frankenberry Lives!

I finally completed my "monster cereal" trilogy by bringing the strawberry-flavored deliciousness of Frankenberry to life. Behold!

Now the monsters can enjoy their cereal brethren's company just as nature intended.

The completist in me feels the need to draw Fruite Brute and Yummy Mummy now.
