Uhh, there's another guy. An ugly one!

Long time, no see: Here comes again a creature of the month, October, I do like it!


One month behind: creature of the month november is this superspooky thingy Vizma sent to me! Thanks a lot to Australia!

Creature of the month October has to be something halloweenesque - even if we don't have this in Germany. How do you like this Wannabe-Cowboy?

Oh nooo, I missed the creature of the month August!! Not good!! Here's my September favorite, which Arac sent today. What is this?? 

July, unbelievable hot in Heidelberg, so this sneaky little alligator gets his chance to be the creature of the month July!

Another month, another creature! Creature of the month June is this disturbing dino. What on earth is this guy looking for? Without clothes? No wonder they became extinct!!

Creature time again! This dreamy bird is my creature of the month May, I've sent it out today. Hope you like!

Sooo, new month, new creatures! Look at these guys, creatures of the month April:


Creature time! I already forgot about it, here's my creature of the month March, don't ask for its name, xoxo

So these two tired hairy creatures, presumably baby and dad, are going to be the creatures of the month February. I hope you like them, I've sent them out today... Cute pyjamas sure get you a headstart with the jury...

Uh oh, I nearly failed to elect a creature of the month January! But today a bunch of funny little things arrived here, so I'm able to present you this indescribable poor creature from John Bennett as the winner in January:

Obviously there is a problem with his eye, poor thing. Thank you, John!

Of course, would cuteness be the only criterion it would have been a hard competition: 

I love his pajama!


Here is a very promising candidate for the contest. In fact, I think this aggressive little aye-aye, who obviously is driving taxi in his spare time, should be the "creature of the month december". Congratulations!


It's a very sunny and very silly sunday, so I just started a new project: I'll choose (and send) a "Creature of the month" for the next 12 months. May I introduce you to the charming zebra which happened to be the creature of the month November?

Don't worry about his eye, Svenja. He's just seeing asemically. This isn't an inchie from John by any chance, is it?

Yes, beside my place for my Laptop is a cabinet I made and on one door you find the brother of the animal of the month.

You have this to look at while computing? That's special, Frieder. I was 99.9999% sure you'd done this art when I asked. :--}

Oh danke....Its what I see when I look a little left from my computer, so I thought of when I saw the animal of the month

Wow, that's unblievable Frieder, it's great (wundervoll, beeindruckend, neiderregend, zauberhaft, du weißt schon...! ;-))

Comment by Frieder Speck on December 10, 2011 at 1:20pm

Its an intarsie I made some years ago

His mouth does look a bit like Robert De Niro's when he's being sardonic. Cute little guy, too.

Frieder, is that your painting on a door? Whoever did it, it's great.

I will, I promise. Don't know the date but will tell you when it's been posted. In the meantime, I love the animals.
