My Latest Article

July 24, 2016
So I haven't posted here in a while because I kept getting errors every time I tried to post something. So, here's what's been happening...
I have been continuing to get my articles published in Scary Monsters magazine. My latest article is in issue #101 and I submitted a new article for #102.  I plan to continue to attend Monsterpalooza conventions and writing about them.  I was hoping to complete another Monster Menagerie Magazine, but with the new house to take care of and so much unpacking, I can't find the time.  Also I have my sketch books still packed away that contain cartoons that I was planning to use for Monster Menagerie Magazine #2. So there. Monster-wise I'm still active. 
 

Published and Loving it!

October 14, 2012
I'm published again!  Dennis Druktenis published my article about Monsterpalooza 2012 in Scary Monsters magazine, #84!  I got ten whole pages, plus a picture that I drew!  I got a Facebook shout-out from Actor/MC Perry Shields for mentioning him in my article and for the accompanying picture of him with Bob Burns.  I'm looking forward to going to the next event: Son of Monsterpalooza that will be on October 26th, 27th and 28th, in Burbank, California.  I'll be there with notepad in hand to co...

Updates to the Site

July 8, 2012
I just completed updates to this monster site.  I found that a link to a friend's site is no longer valid and that the web-ring link to a classic monster ring was acting too aggressive and jumping visitors away from my site!  I removed the web-rings and added a couple of cool sites to the link page.  I've also added a lot of vendors to the "Nightmare Makers" section.  More will be added later!  
You named your page "Monster Menagerie"?  Really?  I've noticed that there are other "Monster Menag...

Writing for Scary Monsters Magazine

May 18, 2012
I'm still writing my article Scary Monsters magazine. I'm told if I get it into the publisher on time that it will appear in the Fall issue.  One more event to write and I'll be done.  It'll be longer than the last article and that one was 9 pages long!  There were some very good panels this year!

Buy, Buy, Buy

November 7, 2011
No one is buying anything!  I tried my hand at making monster related stuff and posted on this site.  I also took the same items to craft shows.  People like them one even took a picture, but will they make the effort to reach around and removed their wallets and shell out 6 bucks?  Nope.  The downturn is taking took long to recover and those with money are holding on to it dearly.

Amazon Wants Me Back!

October 8, 2011
I removed all pay-per-click ads from this site when Amazon canceled all California accounts when our Governor Brown signed a new tax law that would make it that all purchases made in California would be taxed.  Amazon pulled all California affiliate accounts before the law took effect.  Now the law has been removed and Amazon wants me back.  They can kiss my Monstrous Butt!  I had Amazon ads here for over two years and when they closed the account they took $20 to process the check so I ended...
