The Hoodoo Voodoozzels back story:
"Living in the deepest and darkest rainforests there is a nomadic race of ozzels who are said to have a very dark grip of the voodoo ways and a nasty taste for ozzel meat. ugh! I wouldnt want to look into any rustling bushes while wandering through a forest and coming face to face with one of these little fella's! That would be one scary sight I tell you! With their weird ritual face paint in the style of a skull, skulls of little ozzels or animals they've caught proudly dangling from around their neck's and dont even get me started on the black slime that comes from their mouths!! Heaven knows whats been in there!"
They turned out really great, and for more pictures hit up their Flickr site HERE. Son;t forget to snag one of these up via their store HERE tomorrow, they are limited in quantity and will go very fast!

CUPCONIANS! Bow to your new god: Cross-dressing XENU god of Scientology. When you possess XENU you can exert control over all Scientologists (i.e. Tom) living and deceased!

Cupco - December 4th - 31st 2009 • Australian-based artist Cupco (Luke Temby) makes his first US appearance here at Metropolis - though he has already developed a near-fanatic following in the states for his one-of-a-kind soft sculptures. As recently featured at Christies Auction House in their Pop Cuture auctions, Cupco has created a universe of morbidly hilarious characters, taking a cartoonish swipe at world religions, pop culture and politics. Reminiscent of underground comix pioneers such as Gary Panter and Charles Burns, Cupco's soft sculpture pieces marry mythology to Pop Art through the lens of a demented children's show. To be added to the preview list for this show, please contact Metropolis.
Money does go back to the artist and after today, this t-shirt will be Gone FOREVER! Today artist earns $1 for every tee sold. So make sure you get over there if yer diggin the design!
Monster 61 appears to be another upset office dweller. He also seems to be balding. Maybe it's all that stress? Or are environmental factors to blame? Too much Monstesterone? Why do you think 61 is so upset? Who's got him shouting? I hope you'll let us know. (If you haven't posted a story before, please don't be shy and join in the fun.)
