I need a name...


This is my little girls favorite piece of art and she made me post it. --She is writing a little story about this timid little monster. If any of you can help us think of a cool name for it we would love your input!

Just awesome monster! Can't help you finding (find?) a name, I've ever be bad at this... But it's a very attractive monster you've here! Well done!

Sakievich said...

Lovely, man! Great job on the drawing last night. Nothin' slicker than conte pencils.

FES said...

Love him... how about Slurp (he looks like he would)?! ;o)

Lindsay said...

I like what fes said... how about Slurp the Sclawth

Mark Behm said...

He's GREAT! Aw. So sad, too. What's the story? Why is he listlessly licking the tree? I'd love to see a children's book filled w this guy's story.

Jason Seiler said...

Todd,

Just checked out your stuff for the first time, HOLY COW man, cool work! I love everything, really, really cool work!

Ryan Wood said...

He looks like a Rufus to me. Really nice painting, bro.

marcobucci said...

Can you say "DESKTOP WALLPAPER"? This is unreal! It just makes me want to know the rest of the story. If you ever make a children's book, you got a customer right here!

Shane Olson said...

Looks like a Brutakis to me (Broo-ta-kiss), or some variation.

He's awesome! He looks like he'd have a voice similar to Ludo on the Labrynth (but not so cheesy). Go Todd go!

Bartek Kujbida said...

damn crazy paintings man!

How about "Licky McTongue"?
Or "Spitty" or "Tastebud McGee" or "Slimy Treesworth"

Cheers,
Bartek

Jo Bling said...

"Sloth" for mine, every day of the week. It may have been the name of a character in the Goonies but it suits this fella perfectly. Lovely pic!

This is just awesome!..you have a great blog...can't wait to see more.

See you soon.

Sorry, Todd - I have to post again on this. This painting reminds me why I love illustration in the first place. Every time I look at it, I can't seem to click away. It just engages me and makes me want to know more about this place (that's a pretty powerful thing!). Yesterday I even caught myself trying to figure out why the monster is licking the tree (I quickly deduced it was a nervous habit he's had since childhood, and/or his immediate, timid reaction to girl monsters). Still don't know his name, but I'm no good with naming :)

Andrew Glazebrook said...

Fabulous piccy !! He looks like he'd be called a Spudwump to me !

Oscar said...

Very beautiful stuff here! Thanks for your comment on my blog. I never thought too much about what kind of people could get into it. I didn't have any expectatives. Frankly, I thought even my friends would be too lazy to visit it frequently. So I wrote it in Spanish, but I'm starting to think about making a version in english. Luckily drawings are universal lenguage!
If you ask me, the creature is called Funpo Sleezers.

Patrick said...

WOAH...This is INCREDIBLE...so glad I found your blog- having a tough time finding good artists around here.
Your style has a Frazetta flavor to it! Great work!

Newsquirt said...

love the colors, design, everything...lovely!

bazooka radio said...

I'd go for "Mr. Grimples" or jsut "Grimples" would also be good.

Perhaps "Stig."

You have great work here! I am in awe of your technique and imagination. The textures and lighting is great (I don't know why but I kept staring at those leaves hit by the sun). This guy immediately said "Smrgl" to me.

resurepus said...

Hi, Todd,
I just wanted to let you know that this cute monster has been featured in the Daily Illustration sectionof http://www.DesignContest.net Hope it'll help you find the best name for it! Great work!

Mustard Gold said...

Wamput Maursfrund! Gooberdon Blazell? Sloump MersMees. Fauntus Wilembount!

Maybe.

toelesspobble said...

Wonderful pics. How about Myron for the little monster or Gilbert?

Todd Franklin said...

He, She or it probably has a name by now, but I'm calling it a Mollymop.

Geno Writes said...

Okay... I just discovered your blog yesterday.So, likely this guy's been named already, but When i look at him a very straightforward name pops to mind, "Schlump". Hope my belated comment finds you (and your daughter) well (and amused).
