Good morning. i hope you’re already on your way to having a great and relaxing weekend. I thought I’d give you a new Open Source Ink Blot to play with, along with another inspiring entry for Open Source Blot 13 by Eric Grab and snowgods, and a whole squad of monsters by James Powell based on blots past.

For those of you who haven’t done an Open Source Monster, here’s how it works:

Download OPEN SOURCE INK BLOT 14, print it out, and have at it in any way you like: Draw, paint, origami, film, sculpt, write a song about it. Just scan, photograph, or otherwise document the result and send it my way at and I’ll put the result on the blog right here.

Don’t worry if you’re new to the game, or if you don’t think you’ve got artistic chops. We all have some monsters bumping around in our heads. Just let them come out through your hands. It’s fun. (Kinda tingles, too!) I’m excited to see what you come up with! In the meantime, even on the weekend 344 LOVES YOU


I noticed that I had never done my own version of Open Source Blot No.1. (In fact, I can’t find the original blot! Drat!) And it’s been an awfully long time since we’ve had a monster horsey, so I put a third mortgage on my kingdom and presto…
