zapateil attack This painting is for sale!

We would like to thank all the amazing people who came out to our opening at Gallery Nucleus.

Throughout the rest of the show we’ll continue to share paintings, but if you wish to purchase any they are all now available online. The show can still be viewed for the next couple of weeks in person at Gallery Nucleus in Los Angeles.

You can also pre-order the 300+ page Capture Creatures book right now through Kickstarter! Only 3 days to go!

Olmega [133 of 151]

150 Olmega is believed to be a living dinosaur, with sightings dating back to pre-creature history. The exact relationship between Olm and Olmega is subject to many unsubstantiated theories, none of which are worth discussing here. Olmegas keep order in the most restless regions of the creature kingdom using their robust tail. The spikes which dot their tail are the consistency of glass, containing small reactors of energy that burst on contact. It should go without saying, but you should really avoid Olmega’s tail.

The 151 painting Capture Creatures gallery show is just under 24 hours away! Saturday at 7pm in Los Angeles! Chiptunes will be playing courtesy of the rad Space Boyfriend!

Charcalk [132 of 151]

147

 

Charcalk is a much sought after ornamental creature. Superstitiously considered a symbol of power and influence, prominent clans have always wished to display such a powerful and striking beast. The creature thoroughly resists any kind of domestication and must be carefully kept to avoid injury. Charcalk’s metallic tail-feathers are used to shield itself from the attacks of other fire creatures, with which it has a combative relationship. Attempts at taming Charcalk are ill-advised.

The Capture Creatures Gallery Show is THIS SATURDAY AT 7PM! RSVP over at Facebook! Free admission, drinks, 151 paintings and 8-bit tunes!

Calico Archipelago [131 of 151]

009

Calico Archipelago is the final evolution of starter-type Tabbypole. When its middle-evolution, Tidalpole, reaches adulthood, the creature completes its transition into its final form. Greatly increasing in size, the creature now hosts small ecosystems on its back. With tiny trees sprouting upon its islands, Calico Archipelago develops an immunity to plant-based attacks. Calico Archipelago is pictured here with a boat piloted by a particularly miniscule and unfortunate Puug.

3 days until the Capture Creatures Gallery Show at Gallery Nucleus in Los Angeles, CA! On June 1st from 7pm there will be us and music and snacks and all 151 paintings and a few that have never, ever been seen before!

We are also over 2/3rds of the way there in the Capture Creatures Kickstarter. Go ahead and grab a copy of the book (and perhaps a copy of Exquisite Beast and Midnite Surprise Vol. 2 on our first combo Kickstarter!)

Axilotus [130 of 151]

130

The third evolution of starter type Axipoddle, Lilipaddle sprouts into Axilotus following increased exposure to water. Having gained the ability to breathe underwater through its purifying facial tendrils, the creature spends most of its time hidden in lakes. Axilotus’ enlarged head flowers provide a safe environment for raising young Axipoddles. The primary weapon of the Axilotus is its tail; the leaves provide a sharp edge and the stalk acts as a dense clubbing staff.

The Capture Creatures Gallery Show is this Saturday (June 1) at 7pm in Los Angeles at Gallery Nucleus! We will be there, as will all 151 Capture Creatures priced at 151 dollars, as well as prints, books, toys, shirts and brand new (& free) surprises! Check out some of the press on The Nerdist and OMGPosters!

The Kickstarter for our book is still ongoing and we need your help to make it happen! We’re happy to be promoting it alongside our B9 Kingdom co-founders Evan Dahm, KC Green and Yuko Ota! Pre-order your book today!

Furnice [129 of 151]

129

 

Furnice is the adult form of the starter creature Bon Bon Fire and its middle-evolution Carbon Pyre. In its advanced state, the creature no longer consumes bamboo, only the fires it sets on the bamboo itself. Furnice’s entire body is a giant kiln, carrying little weight. Its fire attacks, although few, can destroy entire forests in mere seconds.

Leon [128 of 151]

128

 

An ancient extinct creature, Leon was once the symbol for one of two royal factions. Leon’s legacy is defined by tall tales of primal power and unpredictability. By contrast its respectful relationship with Mono is said to keep the world in harmony. Archaic writings say that any creature that stood against Leon would turn to dust.

It is 8 days until the Capture Creatures show at Gallery Nucleus in Los Angeles! All 151 creatures will be priced at 151 dollars each and we will be hanging out all night! June 1st at 7pm!

Also the Capture Creatures Kickstarter continues! Get the 300+ page book of every Capture Creature!

Mono [127 of 151]

127

 

Mono is an extinct legendary creature. Its horn was said to have medicinal qualities. An ancient symbol of courage, virtue and freedom, Mono was tasked with calming the ancient beast Leon. Their eventual conflict is said to bring about the end of the world. Crude effigies of Mono are routinely found in forests, it is unknown whether they are the work of humans or creatures.

Menqilin [126 of 151]

126

 

Menqilin is a rarely sighted legendary creature, considered by folklorists to be the “companion to the gods”. Its solitary horn is a powerful electric conductor, channeling lightning from the clouds, which it can release in powerful bursts. Menqilin often come to the aid of creatures in need but never seek out conflict. The creature’s molted scales are prized possessions amongst those who indulge in folklore. Menqilin have never been sighted when not running.
