New doll is in the shop! http://missmonster.myshopify.com/

This is a Kabo! They are lazy, happy forest monsters who spend most of their time napping. They build elaborate soft sleeping nests on the forest floor, if you see leaves laid out on a spiraling circle pattern it is the work of a Kabo! Don’t disturb this nest while out camping or it will use it’s very sensitive nose to find you… and will poop in your shoes. Otherwise Kabo are pretty fun little critters, they like to play games and make a whistling sound when they laugh.

This Kabo is named Nosewise. He loves carrots and chocolate! Nosewise also likes tummy rubs and napping in clean, warm laundry.

 

This doll is hand made using cast urethane from original sculptures, a hand sewn faux fur body. This doll is not articulated, it is a floppy style doll stuffed with eco friendly soft fiber stuffing and weighted to sit for display.

Nosewise’s necklace is made from longon seed beads, fossil shark tooth, glass and seeds.

 As with all of my original dolls, this piece will come with a signed and dated etched wooden tag marking it as one of my one of a kind critters.

13" tall seated.

 

This is a piece of artwork intended for adult collectors. It can be played with and cuddled a little but please treat it with care to prevent scuffs. Clean any cast parts with a slightly damp cloth, do not use solvents. Fur can be combed and styled if desired.

 

I do not take on commissioned work.

This Kabo is named Maimonides! He likes to collect rocks and cool leaves. He loves to eat mini oranges!

Maimonides’s satchel is made from wool! There is a special gift in his bag for you.

My thoughts on KaboingTV...

The latest post about KaboingTV on Cartoon Brew felt much more condescending than usual. Rather than rant about Amid’s opinion in the comments section, I thought it would be more productive to post my own take on the whole thing here.

For your reference, the original article: http://www.cartoonbrew.com/ideas-commentary/joe-murrays-kaboing-goes-kaput.html

I put everything I had into my cartoon, Nine to Fire, and I am extremely satisfied with the end result. The short accomplishes everything I wanted it to, and in some ways is even better than I thought it could be when I first started. What the short didn’t do, however, was manage to find an audience online. Now, do I call myself a failure because of this? Of course not! 

A similar thing, I believe, happened to Joe. The experiment was never to see if he could create a successful web cartoon, but to see if the kind of cartoon Joe wanted to make could be successful on the web. Just because the results were negative doesn’t mean the experiment was fundamentally flawed in the first place. I’m not saying KaboingTV was perfect. It wasn’t. But Frog in a Suit is not the Annoying Orange, and it shouldn’t be judged in the same way.
