We've reached it CRAZIES!!!  We've reached Halloween!  Well, almost.  Still got six days to go.  But that's close enough!  The Gregarious Gourd is certainly ready for it!  What's that?  You've never heard of the Gregarious Gourd?!?  Well boy are you in luck, because I happen to be an expert, and there's still time to prepare!  Nobody knows where he came from or the method behind his madness, but every Halloween, the Gregarious Gourd visits numerous pumpkin patches, searching out those who have summoned him and rewarding those who've brought him an offering, even a simple one.  However, those who foolishly summon him empty-handed are punished by a bombardment of tricks worse than any fraternity initiation! The Gregarious Gourd's time is precious, and takes his job seriously.  So be prepared if you want to summon him!

Okay, now that story time is over, it's time to get to this week's art!  Not quite as pretty as the piece above, but in 2017, I didn't know how to use colored pencils properly, so cut me some slack!  Anyway, here's the finale for October!  Enjoy...

Kamaji has many responsibilities in the film Spirited Away, but in his off time, he just wants to relax and jam on some consoles!  Three at once is certainly impressive and he's also a master at trolling ten-year-olds on Twitch!  Another entry from Animal Alphabets, this one was a lot of fun to draw.  Lots of odd shapes, twists and poses which I'm always down for!  Certainly helps that the movie is loaded with bizarre and imaginative characters that practically scream for fan art to one made!

That's a wrap on October 2023 CRAZIES!!!  Another month that seems to have blown through quicker than the Santa Ana winds, but never fear!  We got more fun starting next week as that wily old trickster, Tom Turkey, makes his return for even more battles with those dastardly, but less-than-bright Brat Twins!  The countdown to Turkey Day starts in seven days, so be sure to come back and check it out!  Until then take care, stay safe and watch out for the little ones on Halloween night.  It's gonna be dark out and some costumes stand out better than others, so always be careful.  Catch y'all later!

Welcome back CRAZIES!!!  We are getting closer and closer to All Hallows Eve!  I can almost smell the lit candles that signal glowing Jack-O-Lanterns!  But enough about that!  Art beckons!  Spooky art!  Suspiciously spooky art even!  Art so spooky, you're not even sure if you're seeing it or not!  Don't believe me?  Scroll down and see for yourself!  Enjoy...

See?  Told you this was suspiciously spooky!  I mean seriously, who still wears tights whities, the male equivalent of granny panties?  Another theme from Animal Alphabets, this time the Invisible Man gets his due.  I'm not gonna lie.  I totally took the easy way out with this piece.  Chances are good I was slammed at work when I originally drew this as October's typically my busiest month, so that likely played a part in this very minimalistic effort.  But I think the gag here really comes across well.  It's all in the eye of the viewer/reader when all is said and done.

Well, only one more week to go for our Halloween posts.  How will it end?  Find out next week when a certain squash known for potential generosity clashes with a man who's all arms!  Until next time, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later.

We are back!  It's October, it's Autumn, the leaves are turning, pumpkins are being harvested and cider's being served up by the stein!  It's my favorite time of year CRAZIES, so let's dive right into this week's art so we can go out and enjoy more of the sights, sounds and tastes of the season!  Enjoy...

It's Hellboy, the demon spawn with a good heart!  The longtime staple of Dark Horse Comics made his big screen debut in 2004 and has since had a bit of trouble keeping things going in live action, including a failed reboot several years ago.  Another theme from Animal Alphabets, this one isn't one of my best if I'm being honest.  Muscular characters just aren't my thing, though I've found ways to adapt since then.

Another week down as we march towards Halloween, but fear not folks!  Still a couple more posts to go before trick or treating begins, so be sure to come back next time for some more spooky fun!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome back CRAZIES!!!  We are well into Fall now and October has officially started which can mean only one thing: LESS THAN A MONTH TO GO BEFORE CHRISTMAS OVERKILL BEGINS!!!  Oh, and Halloween is upon us!  Yep, the holiday season has formally arrived as All Hallow's Eve kicks the season off, and we too will be getting the scary dealings started today as the CRAZYVERSE celebrates ALL things creepy, kooky, mysterious, spooky and even altogether ooky, just like the Addams Family!  So sit back, relax, take a bite out of your candy apple and take a look at this week's art!  Enjoy...

Poor Edward Scissorhands.  His creator clearly meant well, but he seriously couldn't have used something not so sharp to make hands out of?  Like spoons or butterknives?  And don't even get me started with the bondage!  Starting to wonder now what he was really planning with his creation?!?  This week's art came from Animal Alphabets on Twitter.  The theme at the time was horror monsters, which makes this one a little weird as Edward wasn't exactly a monster, but I guess you could say he's a variation on the Frankenstein story.  This one was fun to draw though.  Certainly different from my usual funny animals and goofy kids!

Well, that's all she wrote for this week, but we'll be back next time for even more pumpkin spice-flavored spookiness, so be sure to come back and check it out!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!
