The Original Oddball, A Curious Creature

What is this thing? I don’t know. Kind of a goblin, sort of a monster. I call it an “Oddball.” Mainly because its head is shaped like a ball and I literally rolled the clay into a ball to make the head. This guy is assembled from some household recyclables, a small Styrofoam ball, polymer clay, wire, toothpicks, and candy stirring sticks.

The body is made from a wine bottle cork glued to the lid of creamer bottle and covered with a layer of paper clay. Candy stirring sticks are hot glued to the inside of the creamer lid and reinforced with clay. The head and feet are made from polymer clay. Arms are made from wire inserted through the shoulders and covered with paper clay. His scarf is a piece of felt sewn with glass beads.

Here are some more photos of this oddball:

Doodle Monsters

Doodling is fun. Doodling monsters is awesome fun! A few years back, I committed to doodling a monster a day for an entire month. Well, I didn’t exactly make it through the whole month but I did get a bunch of fun monsters done. Here they are:

These are fun to make. You really can’t go wrong and you can make these while watching TV. Just plan out where the white parts will be so you don’t color them in.

These doodle monsters aren’t fine art, but they are a great way to keep your drawing hand nimble. I find that just moving the pen around the page every day keeps my creative juices flowing and opens me up to other arty ideas. Yay, doodling!

Kooky Creatures and Maniacal Monsters

I love creatures and monsters and have made a bunch of them in recent years. Some have turned out pretty well, despite my pathetic sewing skills. Here are two of my latest. Both are made from patterns in books.
