Art swap: done but not forgotten

As you all know, the art swap was a huge success. Both sides walked away with something great for their studio/home and cartoon bunnies cheered like there was no tomorrow.
I know that I'm WAY happy with my new zombie brush holder. Skeletaldropkick did an excellent job. I'm posting a pic because it's too cool not to share. Plus I haven't had any paint spill on him yet. I'm hoping to keep it that way for as long as possible.

Art swap in effect!

The art swap is on!
A little while back I met a fellow monster artist on etsy. She makes excellent utilitarian ceramic monster items for your home, studio, or lair. Check out her work:

She made me a fantastic zombie brush holder for my studio. I created a monster painting themed to fit in with some of her creations called "Ochibos". The new monster is on his way to her and the brush holder will be here soon (but not soon enough:) While we wait very impatiently, here is a pic of this new monster and his story:

Stompchompibos are tiny critters that came about as warm weather tadpoles evolved and moved onto land. They reside near creeks and streams to stay supple. When litter is dropped on the ground, Stompchompobos spring into action. They soar through the air with tiny tentacle nub-arms flapping all the way. Tough feet smash the offending trash into tiny little chompable bits to be eaten and never seen again.

"Stompchompibo" is a 10" x 8" oil painting on canvas board.
