Welcome to the home of the Beastlies!
Each little monster is hand‐sculpted, unique, and waiting to be adopted!

Suggestion: Use something like Publisher to make a cute frame for the story. Then, when you want to print, you can go to somewhere like Office Depot and have them print it on nice paper. You can even email the file to them to print.
This (and the other suggestions) are all good until I factor in that this would be something I’d need to do for fifteen guys, every single week. So that’s a few hours spent not sculpting, which means fewer Beastlies to sell the next week. I’m at the point where I’m making just about as many as I can, so I’m not allowed to spend time on anything extra that doesn’t contribute to my hourly wage I pay myself (Wait, did that sentence make any sense?). Basically if I spend an hour on something, it can’t be on something that doesn’t increase the value of the thing I’m selling, or that’s an hour that I didn’t get paid. I’m not sure I’m explaining it right, but it’s one of the bummers of going full time in the particular way that I have: Extra stuff has to be streamline or it won’t work.11/26/14
Some of the new Beastlies I’m going to put up for sale right about now.11/25/14
Getting the stories added to the listings now… As soon as I finish, Beastlies will be live for purchase.11/25/14
Hello! So I have some Beastlies in the shop as “coming soon.” I aim to put them up for sale today, but I can’t even hazard a guess as to when this time! I do promise to give another heads up before I do, though.11/24/14
Kenton. Why did you tip over the teacup of storage? There are no snacks in there.
Waitaminute, what IS under the teacup?
OH MY GOODNESS. Hello! Your name is Hanna? Welcome to the desk!
… soooo, you two are going to try to put everything back? That’s very helpful of you. I’ll check back in a few minutes, just to make sure safety pins aren’t scattered everywhere.
(Thank you to the RealHusband for the early birthday present Beastlie!)
One of my main painting techniques: spend a million years making little details, then mostly obscure them.11/19/14
The theme of our next Dubious Beasts show is life cycles. So that is why I am meticulously installing little eggs on this beast. If you think they look icky now, just wait till they’re coated in goo.11/19/14
They said it was madness. Unnatural. They said putting a pheasant’s head on a marten’s body to use as an armature would never work. WELL WHO’S LAUGHING NOW BWAAA HA HA HA HA HA #madscientist11/18/14
