Good morning. How are you? I hope things are well on your end. Thank you for checking in on the monsters. Today’s creature — No.133 — will be the last Weekly Monster for a month. Starting on Friday, we’ll celebrate the countdown to the Monster Book with a February’s worth of Daily Monsters. They’ll be Old School — just one minute of drawing and an invitation for you to submit your stories. I hope we’ll have fun!

Today there is still a little bit of animation at the end, but boy… it’s a little weird. I’m counting on you to figure out what’s going on here. Clarification is clearly needed! Please take a look:


I must leave you now to draw new monsters, but I can’t wait
to see what stories you’ll come up with! For now, allow me
to remind you once again that 344 LOVES YOU

    Marcos didn’t know what to think when he was wandering the halls of the hospital. His stomach had been causing him problems recently and he couldn’t stop eating, he was constantly hungry! He should have bypassed the psychiatric ward, however, because this bare skinned creature leaped onto his head! He had no idea humans could fly yet. Do you think the surgeon will be able to fish him out?

    I hope, we’re going to see the “Son of the Daily Monster” in a years time. Seriously 🙂

    Pre-order complete 🙂
    See you in the spring 😀

    Thank you very much, Joe. You’re very kind. I hope you’ll dig the book when you get it! I’ll have to figure out an Open Source Monster book, so I can show your work in style!
    Simon, funny you should say that. “Son of the Daily Monster” is definitely on my list of titles for Volume 2 of the book, if that ever happens. Also, Revenge of the Daily Monster. And “Abbott and Costello Meet The Daily Monster.”
    Danielle, I love your story. Who knew the little guy in his skivvies is an escaped mental patient running loose in the human ward? Excellent! Thank you!

    This monster is the only inhabitant of a very small moon in the outer reaches of the galaxy, but then he comes across a statue of a HUMAN!!!! Does this mean humans have been travelling across space and leaving their mark here, there and everywhere?
    The monster tries to eat the statue, but on realising it’s made of stone, he spits it out. As you would. Because this is a tiny moon, with low gravity, it continues to orbit for several seconds until (purely by accident) it flies back around and right into the monster’s luggage compartment, where it joins Glenn Miller, Amelia Earhart, Special Agent Fox Mulder’s sister and everyone else who has previously been abducted by aliens.
    Just a thought…..

    ‘We’ll say it before, and we’ll say it again:
    The Boomerang-Swimmer goes launching his men
    who, after migrating, become very Zen
    and dive deep into bellies like ink in a pen.’
    Many poetic works, such as this piece written by Arfurb Hassenblatt (the Stairwell Laureate of fame), have been brought to life watching off the Coast Of Souchmeal during the migration and decennary spawning of the Souchmealian Boomerang-Swimmer. Almost a muse-inspiration, this fascinating display of amorous aquatic acrobatics by the hundreds of thousands is enough for even the illiterate to feel compelled to write verse, unfortunately, as in the case of the transcribed Jenxk Fridd’s ‘Swimmer-Fly’:
    ‘Flings around the fattie
    swimming trunks (undecipherable)
    marshungl (sp?), I’m hungry too.’

    Ha! The Souchmealian Boomerang-Swimmer! That’s excellent, GristleBean! And with rhymes! Brilliant! And James: Amelia Earhart and Glennn Miller! Ha!
    I love it! Thank you for taking the time, both of you. I really appreciate it!

    Verrückter Vogel, dieser Mister! Aber Eines ist sicher: Besitzer edler mit Kühlerfiguren bestückten Luxuskarossen sollten ihn sich zum Vorbild nehmen.
    Figürchen lieber selber einverleiben, bevor es ein Anderer tut!
