Once upon a time I had a little mammoth.
He was swell. Happy to tag along while I ran errands around town, didn’t eat too much cake. And then he went missing. So sad.
All this time I’ve been wondering what happened to him. Where could he be? You think the worst, you know? Did he fall in a hole? Did he get buried by a landslide? Did he find an all-you-can-eat swamp grass bar? Where could he be?
Well, on my birthday my friend Jonah was kind enough to clear up the mystery with this drawing.
He has, apparently, been disco dancing with his friend the Birthday Camel. I’m relieved to know he’s safe (but come on, couldn’t he have at least called? Is it so hard to pick up a phone with that trunk?) I do miss him, though.
Thanks for the doodle, Jonah. You’re all kinds of awesome.
Actually, someone did bake me a big cake! AND it had sea creatures and penguins on it! AND it was delicious! AND they delivered it right to my door! Thanks for the cake!!
I saw a snake in the yard yesterday. It must have been afraid because it slithered away pretty fast. Who knew snakes were Vozphobic!
I’m so misunderstood. *sigh*
Anyway…here’s your snake.
It’s coming, whether you’re ready or not.
Thanks for reading/looking/commenting/being awesome monster fans.
See you there.
I hope those are dripless candles.
This is for Jason and any other fans of “pants optional” holidays!
I’m so excited! I finally finished putting the first collection of doodles together into a book. And finally, finally you can buy it.
It’s got sixteen monster doodles full of drama, confusion, and longing. At least one of them I never actually posted here. Oooh! Exclusive doodle!
And even if you don’t care about the book, you should buy it because you get a FREE lucky flounder button if you do! (Although if you’re buying the book just for the button that sort of doesn’t make the button free anymore, does it?)
You can buy it at fishcakes, etsy, or come to Crafty Bastards 2009 in October and buy it from me in person.
My son likes lucky flounder a lot. He was very pleased with his birthday cake.
It’s my son’s birthday today! All week long he’s been asking, “How many days till my birthday?” Hopefully it will be worth the wait.
