I am curious as to what seems to be inspiring your gifts as of late. Is there another Frankenstein book in the works, perchance?

Adam Rex said...

I believe it's the Southwest that's inspiring me, actually.

Ah, he;s soooo cute! I <3 heem!

Jennifer Kearney said...

*that "<3" shoulda been a heart. :P

Jennifer Kearney said...

*and "he's"... not "he;s"... LOL

Yes, if a Chupacabra sat for a portrait, this is exactly what it would look like. Fun!

I like these quite a bit. They're such fun little curiosities. I bet the recipients were delighted with them.

It was extremely interesting for me to read the article. Thanks for it. I like such topics and everything connected to them. BTW, try to add some photos :).

Anthony VanArsdale said...

This is great! and only four inches tall!

and what's up by the way?! I just read that the mysterious roses and bottle of cognac weren't left at Edgar Allan Poe's grave this year in honor of his birthday. If you weren't going to make it, you could have called me for back up!

Nice Chupacabra too Adam!

My father is half Chupacabra and this is an exact likeness of his father (who is ALL Chupacabra). I find it amazing that your insight on this once mysterious "beast" (sorry grandpa) is so far from the traditional renderings, yet so close to reality. Another fact about Chupacabra most people get confused, is we derive from the Dominican Republic, not Mexico.

(seriously) I am a big fan of you work.

Adam Rex said...

Thanks, Eric!

Anthony– Sorry, I had a thing.

Anonymous– huh?

Thanks pxmolina!

Adam Watkins– Dominican, eh? I had no idea. We get a few of them around here, as well.

The spambots are hitting on you! Good job.

There is entire genre of supernatural romance novels - but very few of the cryptozoological variety. It's a niche market. Just think, Naked Came the Chupacabra could be the next Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and you've already done the cover!

Adam Rex said...

Except then he'd have to be naked.

Have you ever read THW WOMAN AND THE APE? It kind of IS a cryptozoological romance novel.

Holly Jane said...

Not yet, but judging by the synopsis, it would have been time better spent than the hours lost to Flowers for Algernon. Evidently it really is quite the romance, because when you look it up on Amazon you also get results for undercrackers and latex chimp masks. Daring!

And since I have now skidded into the Valley of the Inappropriate, I will recklessly plow on to add that your Lincoln illustrations made me larf extra hard at a certain Electric Six video. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTN6Du3MCgI)
