Skeleton Crew

     I am not sure if Skeletons are really considered monsters. They are certainly in the realm of things we consider to be scary and Monsters are considered scary, so, if A=C and B=C, then A also =B.
     I recently found these in a discount surplus store in Winnipeg kinda tucked out of plain sight on a higher shelf. It was the only one there. Generally they would be selling the keychains individually so I was happy that they were all there and I could get the whole lot. The display card is what I was really after but is certainly nicer with all the keychains on it. I don't think it's a particularly older item and I'm not sure why one of them is green. Now to find my old skeleton keys.

I WILL EAT YOUR WORLD! It's nothing personal, I'M JUST HUNGRY.

I just got this in the mail from my friend Chris Chuckry. I think he draws in his sleep.
He is incredibly gifted at conjuring 'fun' creatures, though they can be pretty spooky
at times. Rommbu here is Magnificent. I love the Black Void of his open mouth as if it goes deep into Infinity, as if it could swallow Galaxies whole. But I also love how he seems firmly grounded - notice the green grass he is walking on. Maybe it's domesticated? Maybe it's only a child, always hungry.

Here are a few more of Christopher's Creatures.

Swamp Thing

Here above is a cosmic Swamp Thing painting I did in 1993. And below around the same time are a couple experiments with painting on 5 x 7 inch photographs.

Atomic Powered

After I saw the movie Sky Captain In the World of Tomorrow, which by the way is an incredible eyegoggling spectacle of Sci-Fi Robots, spaceships, rayguns and monsters, (I think there were's been awhile ...... are Robots monsters? ) so, after seeing the movie (in a movie theatre!!!) with my son, we came home and started to build stuff with lego. I started to make many robots. Here is one of them. Powered of course with Atomic.... Love.

Spooky Chuckry

CHRIS CHUCKRY says Happy Halloween and so do I. Chris is an illustrator and comic book colorist who has worked for all the major comic book companies. He lives here in Winnipeg. I love his little illustrations and I wanted to share a few here with you. You can see more of his work on a few of his web sites. Start here at Spookeasy !

Below is a set of stickers Chris made from some of his work. He probably still has some so I bet if you asked him, he would be happy to send you some.

3D Smash

All right kiddies. Free Inside! 
.....or rather Free inside your mind. Because today in the Nakfactorium we have some 3D eye moggling to do. No special glasses are required. Just simple cross-eyed concentration. It's easy!
Here's how to do it.

First, click on or beside the image to get a larger view.
If you are familiar with these, just simply cross your eyes until you see the 3D action. 
If not so simple, then...  

2. Place your finger between the two images.
3. Slowly move your finger towards you while keeping a focus on your finger. A third image will slowly grow between the two images.
4. When this middle image is the same size as the other two, stop moving your finger towards you. 
5. Keep your focus on your finger. Do not change your focus to the image behind it.
6. Move your hand quickly away (don't change your focus ) and that middle image will be three-dimensionally clear!
