Duplication 

Hello, old friends. And for those just tuning in…welcome, new friends. In this exciting installment of thepolygoons.com you will be happy to know that the comics that started it all for these shape-shifting horror heroes are in the process of being created…or re-created.  đŸ¤” What does that mean?  You see, the original comics were created…

Adding Subtraction

This weekend my son went to a birthday party. He had lots of fun and enjoyed all the activities they had for the kids. Upon leaving the party, he was bestowed with the coveted …. Goody Bag! Years have past since I was an attendee at a birthday where goody bags were handed out. Now…

Fun at the Comic Con

Needless to say we are having lots of fun at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo also known as C2E2. We are surrounded by great art work, lots of talented artists, and tons of geeky goodness.  This is our third year going. The attendees never cease to astonish with their creative cosplay. Cosplay is when…

Add A Bit of Color 

I was given a set of cool markers as a gift for my birthday this year. To be quite honest, I was treating it like the expensive plates your family would only bring out on super special occasions.  Definitely not for everyday use. I was very happy that I had received such a great gift,…

Book Fair

Here’s some rather cool news for ya. The Polygoons Activity Book will be available at a book fair in April! Yep! It’s the first time it is hittin’ the stands… so to speak.  Unfortunately, the book fair is open solely to the students of the school. I figured it’s only fitting they get it first…

Re-Laminator

A while back, maybe 2 or more years ago, I bought a laminator. It was from a grocery store that is rather well known in Chicago for low-priced foods. They also have a row in the center of the store with random kitchen appliances, assorted tools, bathroom scales… just a hodgepodge of odd stuff. Well,…

Stencillin’ 

The other day I had the idea to make a stencil. Stencils are cool because you cut it out and can use them over and over if you take care of them. I had some spray paint. But what material do I use to make the stencil? I couldn’t just make it on paper. It…

Make the Ordinary Extraordinary 

Here’s a fun fact for ya! Everyone is familiar with the #2 pencil. We’ve been using it for as long as we can remember. Well, Witch Hazel knows that magic comes from inside and anything can become a potential conductor. And because the polygon she derives her shape-shifting powers from is 3-sided (the triangle), her…

Enjoying life like …

So I have great visions of where and what I’d like to see come from /for the Polygoons. But to be honest, the adventures are calling me rather than the other way around. The ideas just kind of pop in my head when I least expect them. The latest one was while watching cartoons …”I…

A Cup of Confidence 

From an idea that starts out as a sketch in a notebook, through to the scanner, into image manipulation software, out to the manufacturer and back to my hands. It’s amazing to see these horror heroes come to life … in a variety of ways. This one here is my fav so far. ☕️ thepolygoons.threadless.com

So POP -ular

Definitely getting great appreciation and feedback from friends and fiends of all ages. Thank you for the continued support. Here go several versions of Drake – Boy Vampire in all sorts of fun colors.  Hope it’s something you can sink your teeth into. 

Uppin’ the Game

Way back when the Polygoons were just an idea, the most handy and readily available tools were either pencils, crayons or even color pencils. Basically….classroom materials.  I didn’t have a lot of time to sit down and create a masterpiece, so quick sketches would have to suffice. Coloring them in was simply out of the…
