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

holy shit, i’m working on something that doesn’t have slats!
Shing’s taking the lead on Dubious Expedition gallery prep and she is KILLING IT.
And here is the second half of the larval lake monsters going up in the shop in just a few moments.
That second one has a cluster of quartz points, just to reinforce my earlier statement about lake monsters liking crystals.09/13/14
First half of the larval lake monsters I’m putting up in the shop today! It’s a weird time for a shop update, I know, but I want to be sure I give myself enough time to ship them before I leave town.
The lake monsters are very partial to crystals and pretty minerals, it turns out. That top one has a little aragonite crystal star cluster, the second guy is swimming with a really gorgeous silica chrysocolla druzy crystal (the photos don’t do it justice), and the third creature has his own personal hoard of peridot crystals! I suppose lake monsters must be related to dragons, so it makes sense…09/13/14

Change in the way lake monsters are packaged
Over the last couple weeks, I’ve gotten two messages from lake monster purchasers who opened their boxes to find that the canisters had cracked! I package the things well, and the people told me the boxes didn’t even look damaged, so I was scratching my head over this (Luckily, it’s something I can usually fix/replace, but still, wtf.)
I finally realized what the deal is: The lids are so tight that when these things travel by plane, there’s nowhere for the internal pressure to go. You know, it’s like when your bottle of shampoo pops open in your suitcase. Except instead of popping open, the acrylic splits open.
So here’s the fix: I’m not going to package them with the lids anymore. I’ll include the lid, and when the recipient gets their lake monster, all they have to do is pop the lid on. No more cracks! (knock on wood)09/13/14
I miiiiiight have a few of those lake monsters done and in the shop before I go out of town. Here’s hoping I can finish them in time!09/13/14
