Monster o'Mine

This is big. This is huge.

Monsters bags and backpacks are coming to your planet. You must take them to your leader. And also to the mall. And to your school. And to your office.

"there's one in all of us"

I realize that this blog is probably supposed to center around crafts and art, but the new poster for Where the Wild Things Are is out today and it makes my little monster loving heart squeal.

Big. Furry. Monster. Be still my heart.

specimen7 and creatures from another world.

Hello! I'm a new member to the Monsters team, and I'm delighted to be here.

I make polymer clay monsters. The fiction behind them is that they were found in the basement of the late widow of a scientist(Dr. Charles Ellis) known for his research into other worlds - and bequeathed to the Center for OtherWorld Science.

The Center of OtherWorld Science is dedicated to researching and classifying the specimens found in the basement of the Ellis estate, despite the fact that Dr. Ellis' work was discredited during his life time.

So far, the Center's research has been inconclusive, due to incompetent management and lack of funding.

Here are some of the specimens which have been found so far -

There are more at the Specimen7 Etsy store, where the Center for OtherWorld Science is putting specimens up for sale to fund their research.

Hi from Ranzangel, Monster Maker

Hello Monster Etsy community! Skeletaldropkick was so kind to welcome me as a new member. I think I'll let my art do much of the talking for now, and you can find out more by poking around my shop and blog.

Here's a charming alien I made recently:

and a lovely Robot Snowman Penguin:

I would love to hear ANY and ALL feedback and thoughts you have about these pieces and the others in my shop. I am always looking to improve the way I make, show and promote these items.

I have been enjoying this blog and am proud to be a part of it! Looking forward to more monsters yet to come.
