Good morning. How are you? Thank you for visiting the creatures on a Wednesday.
I’m hard at work preparing for the new season of Monsters — starting next Tuesday, April 1st — but I thought I’d post a new drawing for you in the meantime, so you’re not entirely monsterless all week. I hope you’ll like my new friend here:


In addition to posting new Daily Monsters, I’ll also be a speaker at the re:Charge08 conference hosted by AIGA Jacksonville next week. Their theme is “Feed Your Creative Monster.” You can see how my presence is needed. If you’re attending the conference, I’ll hope you’ll come say Hi.

For now I hope things are well with you, and that the week is treating you kindly. Southern California is basking in some lovely springtime sunshine. If you’re not as climatologically blessed I’m sending some friendly rays your way.
Why? Because 344 LOVES YOU

    Aww, he is a cute big bird. He seems to like the weather and as he is black, it’s warming him up quite well. I envy him, where I live, it currently snows. Weird weather…all hail the global warming, it makes the seasons go insane.

    wow, what a wonderful longleged bird. a creature born to make publicity for overkneeboots.

    Is that Jacksonville, FL? If so, you should be able to hear the quilt monsters calling you while you’re there. *S* That’s where they ended up, you remember.
    And another speaker is your old friend Debbie from the interview? Not many degrees of separation is there?
    Oh, and I love the bird monsters too.

    Oh – how cute! A rare machete bird! Native species of the Uno-Hand Islands – so named because… oh, come on, folks… What’s bound to happen when you grab a machete bird with one hand?
    Hence, the old saying… a bird on the limb is worth two hands in the pockets!
