Monster Brains In 08!!
Monsters In Videogames, from the juicy gut spilling maggot infested things in Splatterhouse to the Octorocks of Legend of Zelda, there's going to be a lot of weird stuff in this week long post. Also, this was a complete accident but does that Tempest energy beam jive up with the pic below it or what? Crazy!

Older social / political cartoons with heaps of strange beasts.

I've wanted to do a big post on these vintage demonic diorama photographs for over a year. I'm still hunting down photographs to include in the post but it should be ready next year.


A full week or more will be devoted to dozens of the more interesting monster infested movie posters from the past century.

There will be a full week or two devoted to monsters in manga including works from the following artists.. Junji Ito, Suehiro Mauro, Kazuo Umezu, Kentarou Miur, Shigeru Mizuki , Hitoshi Iwaaki and a lot more.

Lots of Dinosaurs..

I have barely scratched the surface of grotesque art. Expect to see a variety of drawings and sculptures in the grotesque art style sometime next year.

There will be a few weeks devoted to the human body. Plastination, deformed infants in jars, wax models in museums, all that is monstrous and bizarre from the human anatomy.

The Maw Of Hell, one of my favorite motifs in art, the giant monster head with the gaping jaws that is the entrance to hell. This is probably going to be another week long post.
Many ancient maps with all variety of strange beasts littered across the fantastic seas of past explorers.

Dr Who Monster Week!

The Labours of Hercules, I've posted works from this Greek narrative before and I'll be posting more in 08.

Monster toys/novelties, I'll spend a week or two devoted to all the weird plastic monster junk to come out in the past couple of decades. Here's a good example.

Kaiju Toy Week!

This is some of what I have planned for next year, I have no idea in what order or what months these posts will be made but I should fit it all in across the next 12 months.

Glad it's appreciated, I used to think I might run out of stuff to post on here with it being so specific but every week I find piles upon piles more amazing work that fits into my fascination with monsters and the fantastic.

And I'm doing alright Jeremy. Really busy with a deadline, I've got hundreds of ink drawings scattered everywhere that I'm trying to get finished, get scanned, and get cleaned up in photoshop by mid month! Crunchtime! How's your art going?

Happy New Year!
