Welcome to the home of the Beastlies!

Each little monster is hand‐sculpted, unique, and waiting to be adopted!

    • You’ll find out for sure, but I just sent the following link around to all my artists in the department. I don’t know why these exercises aren’t more widely known. youtube.com/watch?v…

      I actually reblogged a link to that same video the day before I started having this new issue! Which turns out to probably be some tennis elbow-flavored tendonitis. The doc gave me some good suggestions on dealing with it.  Lots of stretching!

    • Is it along the inside of your forearm? By that I mean the thumb side up to the elbow bend/pit.

      Nope, it’s the back of my arm? Like if you put you arms down on a table, the part that’s on the table. Which makes me concerned that this is a cubital tunnel issue.  I don’t know anything about it, but some light googling led me to that possibility. Or maybe tendonitis? I guess I’ll find out tomorrow.

    • It’s almost prophetic that I reblogged that comic about preventing repetitive stress injuries yesterday, as I woke up with a brand new one this morning. I’m used to dealing with wrist issues, but now I’ve got weird pain and tingles shooting down my forearm.  I’m not sure exactly what that one means, but I’m hoping a trip to the doctor tomorrow will give me some answers. :\

      Okay, they’re up for sale. I assure you, each one has a rich inner life, despite the lack of story.

      Hello! Here are a few of the Beastlies ready to go live in the shop today! You can check out the rest on the other end of that link.

      I’m having some time issues at the moment, so I’m leaning toward no stories for the guys today. I know! It’s awful! But it’ll mean more Beastlies get made today.

      I’ll make the shop live at 2pm PST.

      It’s that time again!

      I did these Beastlie posters for American Girl Magazine three years ago, and I like to reblog them every Halloween.  They were so, so fun to make and photograph… Partly because I had to test out a bunch of different caramel apple recipes until I found the glossiest, prettiest method.  You better believe I ate all the ones that didn’t come out perfect enough to photograph.
