Beware the Cry of the Colicky

Below are three artists’ renderings of the creatures solely known as “Night Babies,” or as the latins call them — “Nocturnas Infantis.” They sleep in hives during the day and at night take flight into the sky, raiding nests for midnight snacks. There are several species of night baby, a result of evolution via the effects of our ever-changing environment... They often can be coaxed into a powerful “Jaws of Death™” trap by simply using butterscotch pudding as bait. A super soaker fueled with holy water is often the weapon of choice amongst baby hunters. If you ever encounter one of these diapered demons, proceed with caution and at all costs avoid eye contact. If you are feeling a bit adventurous as you wander off into the night for some mild exercise, do make sure that you wear a rutabaga necklace soaked in Dawn liquid soap mixed with concentrated Ovaltine, just to ward off any unwelcome swoopers. More renderings will be posted as they become available...

Hey art fans! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? My boys have been very busy the past several months, which explains the whistling empty halls of the fetch-a-sketch... BUT, change is coming. I have posted a challenge to celebrate the upcoming day of pant-wetting. Yup, Halloween! The boys have to post their rendition of the most terrifying of all creatures — the night baby!!! What is a night baby, you ask? Don't, for the love of all that is holy... DON’T ASK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hold on to your candy sacks, boys and ghouls! It will be a screecher!

HEY HEY HEY!!!!! Uncle Lou is back! I just returned from my vacation in the Poconos with my special lady. I have a sunburn that would make Aunt Jemima jealous! I also had the privilege of attending the wedding of one of my sketchers!! That's right! Jay was wed this past weekend to his lovely fiancee. It was a rip-roarin' good time. I of course, had to be a good boy, so I didn't do any drinking. Ever since the pollup incident, the doc told me no more bubbly brews. So, I am an official teetotaller now.

Check out the movie posters Robb and Joel did for the lovely couple as wedding gifts. They are based on aspects of the couple's relationship and are inspired by real movie posters. Marvelous, boys... Here is hoping that this is the start of a brand new influx of art. According to that last post, we haven't seen anything since February? Say what?!!!

Incredible, if I do say so myself.
