Cthulhu Cupcakes

Heed the call! You may devour these sweet, tentacled, green frosted, red velvety interiored cupcakes, but Cthulhu will devour your soul! When he wakes up, of course. Happy Halloween, everybody.


Monster Month: Naomi

Happy Halloween! This is it, the thirty-first ghoul of Monster Month, 2009! I'm glad I got all of them out, as a lot of these homespun blog projects prove too complicated within the confines of work and life. Fortunately, I've got neither right now. So, thanks to everyone popping in and to those who encouraged me along the way.

Cereal Monsters

I'm growing a little weary of drawing Monster Month characters two weeks into the project so as a little diversion, I drew the staple General Mills cereal monsters: Boo Berry, Franken Berry, and Count Chocula. Yeah, I know, a big stretch. I always dug these characters as a kid even without being a big fan of the actual cereal. After doing a little research for art reference, I discovered that Franken Berry gained popularity with the childrens of the early '70s due to a red dye that the body couldn't digest, causing the consumer's poop to turn bright red. It was referred to as "Franken Berry stool". It was a simpler time then and kids were easily impressed, I gather.

I submitted this piece to a blog dedicated to the Monster Cereals, which features cool fan art and classic commercials and such. Hopefully, it will be posted, but in any case, go forth and check it out here:

Captain Caveman Birthday Wishes

I drew a picture of Captain Caveman back in '82 or so for my father that sat on a mirror in his bedroom for years. Well, I guess it's time for an update since the original is probably faded to nothing, so I made this for his birthday. Happy Birthday, Dad. The fact that I drew a prehistoric caveman for your birthday does not mean that I think you are old.


Monster Month: Marcel

Marcel is the fifth monster of Monster Month.
