Speaking of scary babies, I just heard that a fellow named Bert on the National Caricature Network forum posted a truly scary baby in the "In the Chair" section. He mentioned the scary baby portion of this site as being an inspiration. If you wanna see, you can go right here. But anyway, it's a real sketch of a real baby and it looks hideously awesome with a nasty under-bite and everything. Then there was a big to do on the forum about it with all manner of lively discussion featuring the likes of Tom Richmond and Joe Bluhm, and, well, it was pretty funny to see that. Just so y'all know, none of these babies on SeaWorld SanDiego Beast Heads are actual paid park sketches, they're made up from our head. Now I don't think it's such a good idea to try to make any baby extra scary if it isn't scary to begin with and bla bla bla, customer service, bla bla bla, but the woman was apparently trying to tell Bert how to draw, so I say, she had it coming. Rock on for scary babies!

Wuts up yall, Brian Oakes here! So for Cinco De Mayo we decided to celebrate by decorating some Munnys and getting together for a blind trade. Makes sense right? If you don't know what a Munny is, its a 7" tall vinyl toy that comes in white, black or glow in the dark that you get to paint on, draw on, sculpt on, or do whatever to customize it yourself. They start out looking like this...
...and they come with a surprise accessory. Acrylic paint works really well on them or spray paint, and you can use sculpey to add stuff because they're okay to bake!
Here's what we all came up with!
