Business as usual! A new illustration suggesting not the best action to do during this festive season (after all that turkey it could be disastrous!) We're slowly trying to incorporate more typography into the work so let us know what you think!

Just a short post to say a big thank you to everyone's support this year. It's been an amazing year and we've got you to thank for it! Here's a picture of Florence and Sanchez (the brains behind all of Monster Riot's work!). Hope you all have a great Christmas and New Year and we'll be back with more eccentric illustrations and cute creatures before you can say 'Bah Humbug!'
Recently we illustrated a double spread for an article on how to run a successful creative blog for Advanced Photoshop magazine issue 91. It's the first editorial piece we've done and looks great in print. So check it out as it won't be in the shops for long!

So here it is, the final piece and how it looks in the magazine. We're also on this issues disc so you can create an alphabet style poster too! Got a few more works in the pipeline and we'll be posting up some new illustration and creatures with a festive theme very soon!

Finally a new illustration to share! This new piece 'Yummy Yakisoba!' features in this months Digital Artist magazine and it's my first ever 5 page tutorial! It's all about creating a typographical style poster (they're all the fashion these days) so grab yourself a copy if you want to learn some of my well kept tips and tricks! I'll post some photo's of the pages and the final illustration at the end of the week!

Yes we finally have a Threadless tee! And we're chuffed to see it finally on the site! Thanks to all that voted and supported it. If you fancy having a gander (or possibly purchasing one) you can do so here.

Gosh that month went by quite quick. Sorry for the lack of posting recently, we've been very busy at Monster Riot HQ and unfortunately the blog has suffered. We'll make more of an effort from now on, we promise! So what have we been up to to make us this busy? Well I have to say September was a very good month for us and we were lucky enough to start getting blogged about and even appearing in the exposure section of this month's Computer Arts magazine. It went on sale in the UK on the 29th September so it will be in the shops for a few more weeks if you want to grab yourself a copy.

We're proud to present our brand new website. We were well overdue a new one so here it is. We now have a shop and there's actually things to buy in it (fantastic!). We'll be updating the site regularly so make sure to visit it now and again (websites do tend to get lonely if you don't). So please take a look and let us know what you think!

Oops! It's been quite a while since our last post (sorry about that!). We've been busy with lots more illustration and toy making which we will be posting over the coming weeks. Which brings us to Catherine's latest plush creation, Edgar. He's a wolf and is a fan of Duran Duran and strawberry milkshakes. He also doesn't eat meat as it gives him indigestion (which is probably a good thing as he would eat the rest of the plush creatures and we don't want that!
He's also fitting in nicely with the rest of the clan. More plush and illustrations coming soon!
