Skull & Bones
Never feel guilty about stealing back ones freedom! Piracy is an American tradition!
“In 1777 George Washington’s armies totaled about 11,000 men. At the same time there were 11,000 privateers at sea intercepting British shipping in the Atlantic, Caribbean, and even between Ireland and England.”
The Monster Within
“I’d like to share a revelation that I’ve had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you’re not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague and we are the cure”
Agent Smith, from the Matrix
“The time! The time! Who’s got the time?”
Indeed who does have the time? My new job has got me working overtime all ready and after sleeping and doing other things I almost forgot about art. Post may be coming much slower, but I have lots of money-making to catch up on and as much as I love making art…
It doesn’t pay the bills!
“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?” Lewis Carroll
I am working on a little collection of characters influenced by Lewis Carroll’s wonderful works. They will just be the heads mind you! (The Queen must have got to them)
Hope you enjoy
Dancing Monk Kung Fu
Trying my hand at illustration and creating fake logos for fake businesses. This one is for a Kung Fu training called “Dancing Monk.”
Creature From An Unmentionable Place.
When I got home from buying groceries George The Wolfman was in the bathroom howling like banshee. I went to see if he was all right. He was lifting up the toilet lid, jumping back in fear then let out some wicked howls. I called for Tik to come get his pet, but he answered with a moan…
“I can’t, my belly hurts!”
“From what?” I asked.
Tik replied, “Something I ate!”
Oh God! I what did he do to my bathroom! I lifted up the lid and out popped this creature from a place that I really don’t wish to think about! I am just glad I was in the bathroom when he jumped at me.
This is the last of my monsters. I have put them all on Tee-Shirts and can be had via my Zazzle shop. Hope you enjoyed the fun and silly horror!
I Want My Mummy!
I was watching The Bride (the monster I made for Tik) and have grown concerned with her behavior. She does the biding of the vampire without question. She is ruthless and backstabbing to others and shows no compassion to anyone but Vamps! This compassion seems to be forced though, as if it is done more out of fear than true heartfelt emotions.
I talked to my Wizard friend about this, and after a long scolding in the dangers of creating monsters, he told me the problem is…
“She is a child without a mother!”
“So she needs a mommy?” I stated.
“Yes!” Was the wizard’s replied.
I told Tik this. Tik got it in his head his duty was to find her one. He failed! He did not come back with a Mommy, instead he came back with a Mummy!
I truly have a monster mess on my hands!
I’m finding really hard to create a pet for my monster buddy Tik. (The nickname I gave Tikinstein) Almost all the little monsters I have created after him have progressively been losing the ability to show human compassion. Tik seams to be full of it and I do not want him fall into darkness by not receiving any in return. If I can not make a loving pet for him then one had to be captured.
Tik and I set a trap of hot wings and wolfsbane! We caught this booger of a beast today. Tik loves him and he loves Tik. He is like one of those large dogs that thinks he is a little lap dog.
I asked Tik what he was going to name him. Tik replied, “Wolfman Jack!”
“Really?” I answered back. You do know of the real Wolman Jack is right?
Tiki said, “No”. Then went into deep thought. “I will name him George he yelled with laughter! So I can hug him and pet him and call him George!”
“Tik,” I said, “You can call him anything you want” and off to drink beer I went.
Bride of Tikinstien
Tikinstien has been complaining he is lonely and is not really enjoying the company of Tikucula. He told me Tikucula has been trying to order him to go out and find him supper by talking softly and staring at him with weird googly eyes!
I asked Tikistien what would make him feel better. He told me he wants a wife, so I made him one.
As soon as he and his bride where introduced she hissed at him violently like an angry cat thrown in water! Then she rushed into the arms of Tikucula!
This made my poor little monster buddy very upset. Tikucula though is in his glory for now he has someone to fetch him his supper!
I asked poor Tikistien if I should try again. His response, “How about a pet instead?”
I know just the perfect one for him!
Meet Tikucula, the blood sucking Tiki Vampire! By the way, I will admit now that any bezier curve drawing tool in any vector art software is a pain in the ass! It is so unnatural for me to use. A lot of ctrl+z were used to make this simple little thing! Ugh!
