what manner of mysteries do I find here?

this animal is thinking about …
Do you ever wonder what the Mysterious Animal (or is it a Horrible Creature?) is thinking about in one of these sketchbook drawings? Hint: it is probably not going to advance the implied plot too much. Also, it is not … Continue reading
best of the drawing of the day: glorious ice newt
Behold my glorious ice newt! I have to agree, lady– that’s quite an ice newt you have there. What better way to welcome winter than with that most majestic of arctic amphibians? Not much in the way of notes but … Continue reading
on mysterious animals and horrible creatures
Today I am going to write about Mysterious Animals and Horrible Creatures, and illustrate what I write with some of my Inktober drawings. Anyone who has seen even a few of my comics, cartoons or drawings, knows that one of … Continue reading

This drawing of the day from back in November (we haven’t had this feature in a while, have we?) combines three of the regular sketchbook themes: characters who are described as magic users, Mysterious Animals/Horrible Creatures, and a rather over … Continue reading
This new line of frozen food seems perfect for Godzilla and all his compatriots. “‘Devour’: monster flavor in a meal that satisfies the biggest appetite!” (And look at the price: feeding your inner kaiju isn’t cheap!)
ask bud!: post seven (conclusion, and all about the beefy bar song)
Romance, more Taoism, and some imaginary product placement. Iowa doesn’t say exactly what she thinks Jack is like if he isn’t a twig, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a mighty oak like Mr. Spit. Josef specializes in interrupting … Continue reading
