Hello! You know how I keep going on about Monsters I can’t show you yet? Monsters that are keeping me so busy that I’m not updating the blog enough? Well, here at last are some of them!

Please meet 12 BIGGER MONSTERS, a limited edition portfolio of a dozen larger than usual Daily Monster® drawings. I created these Monsters especially and exclusively for this portfolio. After hundreds of letter-sized characters I thought it would be nice to go a bit bigger. Dramatic scale! Fine detail! The works!

It’s taken me 16 months to select the 12 Monsters that comprise this collection. In that time I made tons of large drawings. Many of them were nice, but didn’t quite measure up. I wanted every one of these Monsters to be great, and I wanted them to come in the fanciest possible containment unit. No expense was spared. Please take a look:

Edition Size: 100 signed and numbered copies
Print Size: 12 x 16 inches (30.5 x 40.6 cm)
Printing: 4-color digital offset printing with a double-hit of black
Paper: Mohawk Options Smooth Digital 80 lb. Cover (216 gsm)
Each print is embossed with a 0.344 in. (0.87 cm) diameter 344 seal.

Portfolio Case: Custom-made 12.5 x 16.5 in. (31.8 x 41.9 cm) case covered in iridescent silk that changes color from tan to bright pink depending on viewing angle. The case has hardcover flaps, a hidden magnetic closure, and a custom Daily Monster liner. The cover of each case is blind-debossed with the number 12 in a 5.25 inch diameter circle.

Shipping: Each portfolio is protected by a clear, resealable Mylar bag, and ships inside a bubble-lined polybag envelope, which is packed in a snug corrugated cardboard mailer. Each portfolio ships with a pair of archival gloves of nylon or cotton, so you can handle the prints without risk of unsightly fingerprints.

Total Weight: 2 lb 8 oz (1.13 kg)

Please note that these prints are 12 x 16 inches in size, which means they fit into standard picture frames, so you can put these Monsters on your wall without breaking the bank. (Alternatively, you can put one
Monster each on the walls of twelve of your friends this Holiday Season.)

If you’d like to place an order, you can do so by clicking the PayPal button. I’ll ship the portfolio to you via U.S. Priority Mail. If you’d like shipping via FedEx, please contact me so I can get a shipping rate for you. Please order before December 1st to guarantee delivery by December 24th.

Please tell me your preferred glove size when you order:


If you’d like to take a closer look at the Bigger Monsters, you’ll find them below. You can also see a version of this page on the 344 site that has bigger images of all the creatures. For now, I hope you like the new guys, that you have a stress-free and delicioius Thanksgiving, and that you know: 344 LOVES YOU

    You already had me at the mention of dupioni silk. *S* That is just a wonderful fabric.
    This looks like such a snappy project you’ve offered. I really hope they fly off your shelves.

    I hope so, too, Annie! Fingers crossed. The Dupioni silk came about, because I asked my bookbinder for a fabric that looks like an Arnold Palmer. :^)

    hi steve.
    May I call you, steve.
    I pry from Java-Indonesia, saw the results of your work, apparently you are very professional in your field,
    pleased to meet you,

    Hello E.J., You may call me Steve, but my name is Stefan. I'm glad you like
    the work. :^)

    hello Stefan,
    I better call you Stefan, I like to draw, although I can not draw well, I’ve tried to make an animation with Macromedia Flash software, but the result is very disappointing, especially at the point of view of the object, lucky it could make my nephew smile. but I know I do not have the talent for it
    still working Mr.bucher, I am sure not only me who admires your work.
    may we always be successful with what we do

    Hi E.J., You know… I have yet to figure out how to do anything with Flash,
    so you're already way ahead of me. I use a goofy little piece of software
    called Anime Studio.
    And hey, don't say you don't have the talent for it. If you're interested in
    doing it, and you have fun at it, then you're just looking for the right
    Growing up, I never thought I could be an animator, because I don't have the
    patience to draw the same thing 800 times with minute variations from frame
    to frame. And then animation software came along that let me make things
    move without that, and presto! I'm having fun animating. You just haven't
    found the right tool yet.

    Great show last night (Jan. 26, 2011) at Pendulum New Music with your Monster Show video during the music Monster Party. A perfect match. I must have these drawings! Who needs new shoes… who needs to eat… who needs gas for the car… What’s important…
