Monsters hiding in plain sight

I think the reason nobody ever really sees Sasquatch or Nessie anymore is because they wised up and started wearing disguises.

A dead vegetable that found its second wind

Zombie zucchini adhere to the same basic rules as people zombies. Aim for the head (it's behind their face). Don't miss.

Potato Piracy on the rise once more

Question I asked myself: "How can I add spice to a spudly buccaneer who already possesses roughly a spice rack full of spiciness?"

Answer I gave myself: "Put a tiny skull on his eyepatch, dingus."

As a fan of all things tiny I implemented this solution forthwith. Behold!

My kitchen table is a mess and I think you know why

Currently engaged in a massive plush making campaign. I've made about 10 pieces thus far. Some old friends. Some new ones. But I'm not going for speed here, folks. I'm trying to make things when the inspiration strikes me in the face.

My work space of the moment is the kitchen table. (Take that, Better Homes and Gardens!)

I've decided to put all of the finished plush within my old Indiana Jones satchel. Young Doug received this one Christmas by asking his parents for "a bag like the one Indiana Jones has." Sadly, this bag and the boy that I once was never set off on any adventures to rival that of the young Henry Jones, Jr. I did, however, engage in some fiery stick fights in my backyard. Many a digit was scrunched betwixt yonder poles of birch! (Translation: somebody's fingers would invariably wind up getting squashed by a stick.)

Witness the doodles in all their glory! Paper doodles! Felt doodles! Macaroni doodles! I like to think I doodle...every which way but loose.

Zombie Murder Magic mightier than thou!

My preferred method of doodling these days? In Photoshop using my FAVORITE tool: the pencil tool. I love the blocky, lines of pixels that in no way resemble drawing with a pencil. There's a gentle ugliness to every picture produced in this fashion. Though I suppose it helps when you're drawing things like monsters, blue zombies, and deformed power men...
