Now that the holidays are over, it would seem there’s nothing interesting about today’s date. Not so! On January 11, Amelia Earhart became the first person to fly solo from Hawaii to California in 1935. Later in 1937, Earhart disappeared during her attempt to be the first woman to fly around the world. Said Earhart, […]

Introducing Emiko! In Japanese, the name Emiko means “smiling child”. Clearly, Emiko’s parents have quite the sense of humor. Emiko also shares her name with Emiko Yamane, the archeologist’s daughter in GODZILLA (1954). Actress Momoko Kochi, who played Emiko Yamane, reprised her role in Tako Okawara’s GOJIRA VS. DESTROYER (1995). Director Okawara was impressed with […]

Ooh, I’ve really been looking forward to uploading this page! Introducing Gattameiti, resident giant monster, protector and cranky old guy of Monster Paradise. It’s a good thing Emiko keeps him in line. Standing at 25 stories, Gatta would be a little smaller that Godzilla. So while he’s not the King of the Monsters, he’s certainly […]

Gwen just loves The Honeys! Heck , we ALL should love The Honeys! This 60s girl group were kind of the female counterparts to the Beach Boys. So much so, in fact, that Beach Boy Brian Wilson served as their record producer and chief songwriter. As much fun as their song “Shoot The Curl” is, […]

Man oh man, I’ve sure been busy lately! I have a lot of paying gigs I’m working on, which I hope to announce in the near future. Plus, there’s a new furry friend in our household who comes with his own challenges. But when things settle down, I’ll be able to draw more Monster Paradise–in […]

Introducing Monster Paradise’s resident gear heads–Chevelle and R.T.! For added enjoyment, imagine the Modern Lovers’ song “Roadrunner” blasting from Chevelle’s dashboard radio right now. Those with a discerning eye may figure out that R.T. is inspired by a long line of Hot Rod monsters such as Rat Fink, Mr. Gasser, Digger and Endsville Eddie. For […]
