A horrific way to learn your ABC’s.

Z is for Zap Happy Zeus

  The. Final. Letter. And boy howdy did it give me a fight Z is for Zap Happy Zeus. I’ve had this idea in my head since, I don’t know, the letter H? When it finally came time to do it I was pretty damn intimidated. I hyped it up too much in my head. The color palette reaaally gave …

Y is for Ya Did It Yeti

Yeti — Ya did it. Ya won. Ya conquered all the other mythical creatures in an enticing round of fisticuffs. Ya slapped the taste out of the Boogey Man’s mouth. Ya stomped the Loch Ness Monster into submission. Ya TKO’d that slippery Slender Man. And now look at you — The title is yours. His Yeti wife in the crowd, …

X is for X-Ray x X

Get it? X is for X-ray. TIMES TEN. TIMES SYMBOL IS AN X. ROMAN NUMERAL FOR TEN IS X! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! What a stretch. Apparently this cycloptic creature has gotten ten x-rays in his life. Ugh whatever. You try coming up with one for X. Look at his dainty ballerina feet. His flexibility. Awe inspiring grace. This one was a little …

W is for Winged Wart Beak

www

Pumped this one out pretty quickly, eh? Oh baby. A Winged Wart Beak, terrorizing your crops. The deliverance of pestilence from above. A nice counterbalance to V is for Viking Beards of Valhalla. Much easier to work on with much less beard hair. Got some suggestion from my insanely talented dude, Rob [check out his facebook page, and while you’re …

V is for Viking Beards of Valhalla

Raging Ragnarök!!! THANK THE GOOD LORD IT’S DONE! Those flowing ginger viking beards took me a good chunk of time to color. I’m never drawing hair again. Shout out to Kevin sent straight from Heaven for the idea of using vikings. All that hard work paid off though — at least it did in my opinion. Really happy with the …

U is for Undead Unicorn Udders

U is for Undead Unicorn Udders. Utterly ridiculous. This one was really hard for some reason. I was all confident because I had a good base sketch, but once I went into the coloring I got overwhelmed. Still not sure it’s right for this one. But you know, I can always change it because vectors are awesome. Special thanks to …

T is for Tomahawk Tommy

Had a beast of a time choosing the color palette here, but I’m starting to like the complementary colors. I’m diggin purple and orange lately. U is next. Can u believe it? HAHAHHAA! Click the …

S is for Shutter Shade Sludge Serpent

The crowning jewel of the Awful Alphabet [thus far] and quite possibly my favorite drawing I’ve ever done. I’m just happy with it. I like the color pallet OK? A slippery, slime serpent… Slithering seductively sideways. A powerful alliteration. I know what you’re thinking — “Dude, that was so predictable, A SNAKE? S-S-S-S-SERIOUSLY?” to which I respond: “that’s a terrible …

Q is for Quack Fart

Do you remember The Mighty Ducks? Remember when Emilio Estevez ripped that juicy, pant rippling hamburger fart to motivate the team in the last period of the play offs? That was a quack fart. And this? This is an homage to that. Before you re-watch The Mighty Ducks [which wouldn’t be all that bad of an idea] that actually never …
