We are back and getting ever so closer to the witching hour!  Seriously, we're little more than a week away!  Hopefully you fine CRAZIES are making the final adjustments to your costumes and practicing proper trick-or-treating etiquette.  Remember kids, a pillow case holds MUCH more candy than those cute little pumpkin buckets your mom makes you carry!  But enough about that, it's time for some art!  Enjoy...

YO GRUBBA GRUBBA!!!  These colorful monsters LOVE to party!  The Grubba is also known as the glow monster because of its love of black lights, hence the reason you always see then wearing neon colors.  If there's a rave to be had during halloween, you will find a Grubba or two hanging out on the dance floor, busting moves as their wardrobe shines!  The last Monsters Go theme I'm posting this month (Don't worry, I still have a few more for next year), this one was probably my favorite to draw.  I've always been big on colors, so this one was a given that I'd take part.  It was also cool to work on a character that doesn't have many curves.  Everything's so round and bouncy in my art.  I liked drawing some sharp points for a change!

That's all for now but we'll be back next week with DOUBLE the spooky art to celebrate Halloween and close out October properly.  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

We are back!  Halloween is getting closer and hopefully y'all are finding ways to have fun still.  I have all of my decorations up and have made my yard extra spooky this year:  I hired my neighbor to sit out front in a rocking chair and cackle at passerby!  She's pretty darn spooky I tell ya what!  But enough about that, you came for some art!  So let's jump right in!  Enjoy...

HEEEEEEEEEEEERE'S NUMSY!!!  Straight from Monsters Go, Numsy's also known as an arrowhead monster as he darts straight for the candy bowls every Halloween!  It is unwise to leave treats unattended when he's around!  Numsy was fun to draw and presents another unique creation as he also has no black outlines, despite having a black on him still.  I like the reverse coloring.  It's something different.

Another week down as we march towards fright night, but fear not!  I've got another post ready and waiting for next week, so be sure to come back and see what spookiness awaits!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome to October CRAZIES!!!  The Spooking Season is upon us!  Things have certainly improved a lot since this time last year and I'm particularly excited for the return of a more traditional Halloween, though current safety protocols will still be closely followed.  Costumes, decorations, tricks and, of course, TREATS!!!  We got it all here at the CRAZYVERSE and are looking forward to giving y'all some long awaited spooky fun!  With that said, let's get the art show started!  Enjoy...

The Wobb!  Also known as the amoeba monster, this spirited creation was dreamed up by the Monsters Go art collective on Twitter, which took kids' drawings of monsters and challenged artists to draw it in their own styles.  Always looking to sharpen my skills, I took part for a little while and had a lot of fun putting a CRAZY spin on these marvelous monsters!  The Wobb is particularly interesting as it's among the very few pieces I've done that has no black outlines on it.  Great use of primary colors though!

That's all for today, but be sure to come back next week for more monster fun as we approach the witching hour!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

We have reached it at last... The end of September!  And you know what?  That's okay!  Halloween is rapidly approaching and looking like it might be halfway normal this year!  We also got the BIG holidays coming too, but more on that when the time is right.  You know what time it actually is though?  Time for art!  So let's do this!  Enjoy...

Poor, poor child.  Piranhas can't be reasoned with!  When are we gonna call them what they really are: River Hornets?  The last theme of the Daily Doodle's Weird Pets Week from November 2014, piranhas was another one that I read it and immediately knew what I wanted to do with it.  Some themes just really grab ya, and this was one of them.  All the animal themes were fun to do.  I'm not a fast artist by any means, so I look back and these and am stunned that I came up with gags so quickly.  Maybe I need another daily art challenge in my life?  They certainly kept me on my toes.  Maybe in the future somebody else will start one up?

And that's a wrap for September 2021!  But fear not, for October starts tomorrow, and next week, we'll kick the spook factor into high gear with some monster laughs!  So be sure to come back for a scream or two!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

Time...  It just keeps slipping by don't it?  It's not totally bad though as the Spooky Season is upon us!  I do loves me some Halloween, but for now, I just gotta be a little more patient!  Anyway, let's get to the art, shall we?  Enjoy...

I'd like to be...
Under the sea...
In an Octopus' garden... 
In the shade...

Sorry, had to work a little bit of Ringo in there.  He was my favorite Beatle after all!  Octopi are highly intelligent creatures.  Why, Paul the Octopus at the Munich Aquarium even successfully picked the winners of every game from the 2010 World Cup!  Octopi are also very affectionate, though cuddling with one is not recommended.  Besides being kinda slimy, they're also quite the huggers!  The Daily Doodle's Weird Pets Week theme continues with one of my favorites from the whole thing!  When they said octopus, I knew exactly what I wanted to do and it is a hoot if I do say so myself!  And don't worry.  Ol' Octi let the boy go just after his face turned as purple as Octi is!

Another week down as we march towards the finale, which is next week now that I look at the calendar!  So be sure to come back and see September of 2021 off in grand fashion!  You'll be chomping at the bit I'm sure!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

We are back and it is the exact halfway point through September!  It seems the older I get, the fast time seems to pass.  Wish all the associated bull crap we are all going through would pass just as quickly, b ut that's neither here nor there.  Y'all want some art, and I just happen to have some!  So let's go!  Enjoy...

Flamingos. Big, pink and oh so smelly!  A zoo ain't a zoo without a flamingo pond, and you always know when you've arrived there when smell hits you at the front gate!  Even a few hotels and theme parks keep them on hand for visitors.  Knott's Berry Farm even had a flamingo pond once upon a time!  Today's art is from Weird Pets Week, a Daily Doodle theme from November of 2014.  There's no real story behind this piece.  Just something I did on the fly really.  For the last few years, a wayward flamingo has been making the salt flats of Imperial Beach his spring/summer home.  Considering that flamingos AREN'T native to the Pacific Ocean, it is quite the head scratcher that this colorful bird somehow wound up here.  Nobody knows how he flew so off course, but he's been a welcome visitor ever since.

That's all she wrote for this week, but we'll be back next time with some art that you'll really get a squeeze on!  So be sure to come back and see!  No pressure though!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

We are back!  How back are we?  Well I just said it didn't I?  Isn't that good enough?  It's not?!?  Alright, fine!  I guess I'll have to post some art then.  That ought to prove that we are in fact back and not just imagining things!  So let's get the ball rolling!  Enjoy...

Funny.  Usually it's the pets that pick up bad habits from their owners, not the other way around!  This is another piece from the Daily Doodle's Weird Pets Week from November 2014.  This particular day's theme was a sloth, so it just seemed like a natural to have it involve some silly sleeping!  Sloths are actually pretty darn adorable if you've never seen one up close, especially baby sloths.  They literally just sleep all day!  Can't imagine them being all that difficult to raise and take care of.  They're like living plush toys!  I had hoped to paint the backgrounds of this one using watercolors, but chickened out.  It's a new medium I'm trying and need a bit of practice with still, so I just Photoshopped the background colors in.  Paint Bucket's a marvelous tool for cartoonists just looking to do something quick and flat!

That's it for this week, but come back next Wednesday as we celebrate the halfway point of September with a particularly colorful bird!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!
