I made a quick and dirty Seymore Putts prototype. He’s a mini golf expert with a foul mouth. I would love to edition this dude as a vinyl figure. Keep an eye out for further developments on the Seymore Putts story.
Found a killer miniature golf place outside Chicago, called “Novelty Golf”. Beautiful assortment of kitschy oddball obsticals, and handpainted signs. I was thrilled by the Frankenstine Castle, which had a weird little Star Wars action figure diarama built into it!? 5 stars!
Our hole, “Take Out the Clowns”, is comprised of space brain monsters who are harvesting the funny fluid of human clowns. And the effect this has on the gravity of circus peanuts. Amidst all of the chaos, the albino shouting gorilla is running amok, throwing banana peels at everything! Below the fairgrounds looms the space brain’s crystal cave, a kind of wine cellar of funny fluid.
There are 3 ways to navigate this chaos.
The first option is to go up the quarter-pipe and into the mother-ship to defeat the brains. and return to earth via a spiraling space beam.
Or perhaps you’d rather take the secret passage through the quarter-pipe, and through the geo-dome. in pursuit of the escape albino gorilla.
Or finally, you could take the ramp through the crystal cave. for a quick meal of moon-shine and circus peanuts with the hobo.

My contribution to Faesthetic #12 included one incarnation of the Megacourse, as well as a couple closet skeleton manifestations from the course.
The Megacourse is the all-inclusive miniature golf destination. As thoughts are accumulated on the green, the Mega-course manifests apprehensions of each thought and forces the player to defeat the newly-acquired obstacle. Only the most focused, self confident, player can defeat the Megacourse.
I got interviewed on Fuel TV as part of their Boston coverage for the Dew Underground Tour. I learned that it is better to ask for forgiveness than for permission while shooting.
Thanks to Drew and Jeff for putting up with my weird requests…
Also, to clarify, there is some work included in the video made by other artists. This is to illustrate some the awesome Ice Cream People renditions people have contributed. At 12 seconds in they flash a drawing made by Travis Millard, then at 1:07 they include works by Mymo, Joe Keinberger, Eduardo Sarmiento, Travis Lampe, HorseBites, Patt Kelley, Joseph Game, Gemma Correll, Bruno Monteiro, Tom Gauld, and Frank Magnotta.
