Art by Sif! This means so much to me, the perfect representation of my clown girl self, Boogle. My heart is exploding with glee ;u;
Boogle belongs to me since 1846!! ;P But seriously… there are a surprising number of shallow mimics of her around since I first made her. May they all drown in the swirly surreal oceans of my dreamscape. <3
A work-in-progress reference for Boogle. Not sure if I like it. I wanted to show all her outfits & accessories, but having photo examples looks a bit jumbled. I’d like to make a flash type thing (never worked in it) that you can click to view other outfits on her, but not sure how to do that, so I’ll probably just draw her outfits in somewhere along with her backstory/description, or at least as much of it as I can fit without it being too much for other artists to read, since it’s pretty lengthy. I just figured it was about time to make a reference that covered everything about Boogle in one image, so I wouldn’t have to link artists I commission to like, 8 different pictures anymore x_x; because, as an artist myself, I know how damned stressful and annoying that is.
Realizing more and more that the more meaningful a character is for me, the less capable I am of making it simple lol. Boogle means more to me than any of them. Can’t wait to find the time to finish this.
My clown girl, Boogle done by STiR! eee :D I love that they made her whole body white instead of light lilac with the darker spots. Looks like she has on full-body clown paint. <3
Dressed up as my clown girl, Glow last night! She loves all things glow-in-the-dark, ghosts, Halloween, plastic bugs in her hair, tropical-anything, kitschy stuff, ponies, kids’ cereal mascots, retro kitchen appliances kids’ tv shows, living room camping, eyeballs, roaches, b-movie monsters, yokai……. Sound familiar? She’s basically Boogle, or at least, the kind of clown Boogle would have been had she not become a Penanggalan. It’s a long story, though not that interesting of one :) Basically think of her as a younger, more colorful and high-spirited version of Boogle, if nothing horribly bad had ever happened to her.
I wanna get a wig made with completely glow-in-the-dark hair, as well as a glow-in-the-dark green nose. <3 One of my favorite things in the world is that yellow-green plastic that glows in the dark. It makes me think of my childhood. Domino Rally Ghost Ride… g-i-t-d MLP… g-i-t-d Monster in my Pockets… a Ghostbusters ghost “Jail Jaw” I used to have… and this Casper necklace I used to have… I’ve searched everywhere online but can’t find it. :C It was sold at Wal-Mart, and the little glowing Casper was about 1 1/2” long.
Anyway, yeah… introducing Glow. :)
For a couple years, I’ve been accumulating an ATC collection oriented around Boogle & the Gromble (of course), and this is all I have so far :) I’m going to try and link every artist from top to bottom, left to right:
It’s hilarious when internet people who don’t know me one bit try to hurt my feelings… it’s always either a. I draw SELF-INDULGENT ART rather than loads of fanservice for their self-entitled asses, b. uhh… CLOWNS=WEIRD, wat are you some kind of WEIRDO, c. You have a rape fetish OMGZ THAT MEANS U HATE WOMMIN or d. EW ROACH LOVR U NASTY. None of these things are insulting to me, because either they are tremendously untrue* or tremendously NOT INSULTS lol. I always get a little scared when someone doesn’t like me, thinking “oh they must have some reason, maybe I did something to offend them at some point?”, but I love when it winds up being that they’re just little bitches who don’t know me one bit and have nothing better to throw at me than U WEIRD. But yes, I get this one a lot… here, on drama sites, and -especially- on my youtube comments. x)
(*But actually I totally fuck roaches, that one’s true.)

Now back to your regularly scheduled clowns, monsters and bugs.

Go here for un-cropped & larger view + description :o)
This is the first sheet of a comic I’m commissioning from axolotl-mafia. I knew she would be just perfect for illustrating the backstory to my clown/penanggalan character, Boogle. She’s doing an amazing job so far, I just can’t believe it. This is the most meaningful thing I’ve ever commissioned <3 I imagine it will be 5-6 sheets (maybe 20-30 pages) long in the end, but that could change. I have had this story in mind for a while now, but only just felt comfortable sharing it with the world… it’s very personal to me, even though it makes Boogle almost like a fan character, since I’ve made the world of AAAHH!!! Real Monsters her home. It just means so much to me, and I’ve daydreamed about being in the Monster Academy so many times, it just feels right (o:
I’ll be editing these into storybook-like pages with text I’ve written to go along with each image. I want to have it printed into a book one day, just for myself. ;u;
This artist is an awesome person and great friend to me, so I trust her fully with my ideas. Go watch her and also peek at her other comics including Galaxy Magnolia!
*edit* wow, just realized how much Tumblr downsized this. You can barely read it x_x I’ll be posting the images separately as I get the pages worked out!
A tiny Boogle & Kittymonster in one of many frames I got at Michael’s. The drawing area is only about 1.5x2.5”. Inked with extra-fine Faber-Castell indian ink pen, colored with Copic brush pens & Prismacolor pencils, touched up with white gel pen. Next time I’ll be using a needle to touch up with this, as it comes out in too-big globs most of the time x_x
Bleh, I hate that I got bored with this. It just wasn’t coming out as I’d hoped. Stupid fat ugly Boogle. Having one of those “I hate my art” days, I guess. I like how the Oogles were coming out, though! I like to imagine them as little creatures that can form their optic nerves into male/female or animal bodies, even just 8 spidery legs or one long tendril they can slug around on.
Quick doodle for my last.fm page. Add meeee :3
I did these quite a while ago, but don’t think I ever shared them online anywhere yet. I love these tiny intricate frames, so kitschy and adorbs ;u;
