A Week of Goblins Past (2014)

One of the first pleasant surprises of 2014 was my discovery of Goblin Week.

Goblin Week started by Evan Dahm!

What is Goblin Week you ask? It’s a week for drawing goblins of course! It was started by one of my favourite web comic artists, Evan Dahm of Rice Boy fame. He’s currently working on a story called Vattu. Seriously, go check him out if you haven’t already.

So naturally, I had to take part.

Day 1: How to catch a goblin…

Day 2: A Goblin Shaman

Day 3:

Garden Goblin

Garden Goblins like to cause mischief in your garden. Rather than directly attacking your plants, which is waaaay to obvious, they’ll instead make living conditions for your plants nightmarish, making you think that you are terrible at raising plants. Here we see one munching on an earthworm.

Day 4:

Goblin Idea

Goblin has an idea. Or a quest. The latter probably will get you killed, though to be fair, so will the former.

Day 5: Goblin Kitty Rider

All Goblin Kitty Riders come with a mandatory skateboard and monocle for the kitty. Anything less would be uncivilised.

Day 6: A Portrait of Goblin

A goblin portrait for Goblin. His mother started numbering all her children, but she gave up after eight, so 9-? are just named goblin. But she loves them all.

Day 7: Goblin Karaoke

Little known fact: When a singer claims they have a muse, they actually mean they have a goblin that makes up the songs for them. Many goblins love singing, but the record industry doesn’t think that goblins would sell.
