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.
