Joshua The Jolly Elephant – Video

This is a time lapse video of me creating Joshua the Jolly Elephant.

I also recite a poem about Joshua which I composed whilst staying in the African Jungle with a herd of African Elephants called the Big Grey Crew.

They are a lively bunch.

Dracula Darrell (Prepare to Meet Thy Doom haha)

An Ode to Dracula Darrell

Dracula Darrell comes from a family
Of bloodsucking monsters ever so scary

He has the skill of shooting beams of energy
Outta his hands and into his enemy

These radiactive lasers, so mutant and deadly
Will vaporize anybody who appears unfriendly

A zap zap here and a zap zap there
My laser beams are gunna give you a scare

That’s what he sings when he’s zapping away
And his smile so deranged stays around all day

An Ode To Rodney Ropebeard

Rope Beard Rodney is an old sea salt
His poison of choice iswhiskey and malt

He nearly met his maker, sent by Moby Slick
The great grand whale of Moby Dick

This whale was a zombie beast stained red
From the blood of the men upon which it has fed

Rodney tried to harpoon this deathly whale
But the odds were against him he was doomed to fail

It’s skin was as strong as a golden orbs web
Harpoons were useless even to the head

Moby Slick devoured the entire stinking crew
Gobbled them up like some putrid human stew

Rodney did escape and he’ll tell you the tale
Of his high seas adventure with Moby Slick the whale

Snake Turban Steve

An Ode to Snake Turban Steve

Snake Turban Steve is a weird and dangerous chap
His headwear of choice is the deadliest form of hat

If you give him any cheek his serpent will pluck out your eye
Then the beast’s deadly venom will make you slowly die

But if you carry a flute you know you’ll be alright
The snake will be yours and you’ll have no fight

The Majestic Afro and Beard of Jungle Man

© Mulga 2012, Jungle Man, Ink on Paper, 30 cm x 40 cm


This drawing is based on a photo of TV on the Radio singer Tunde Adebimpe that I found on the interweb. Some people thought it was a drawing of The Roots drummer, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson.
I’ll tell you right now, those afro curls took a long time to draw!
Lucky I had the intention to finish this drawing or I would never have completed it.
It consumed my time like a killer whale consumes penguins.
See you next time.

Captain Monkey Pants

Mulga, Captain Monkey Pants, Ink on Paper, 26 x 36 cm

An Ode to Captain Monkey Pants
This man I can recommend
You will want him as your friend
This man has a beard
This man is weird
He’s a captain with a pipe
He likes his bananas ripe
His hat is cool and he pity’s the fool
Who aint seen the world and when he rides a wave
He likes that cave when it’s perfectly curled
He travels the world in his ship with his crew and cat
He once saved a monkey king who was in a flap
The monkey king gave him a gift
As a reward for the lift
It was a pair of pants
They were magical
They were fantastical
They did not contain ants
They were full of power
And they bloomed like a flower
When the time was right
They helped solve any plight
The story of Captain Monkey Pants is truly amazing
He’s everyone’s favourite captain who’s a little crazy

Bombastic Beanie Man

Bombastic Beanie Man

Hello, look at me I’m the beanie man
I wear a beanie like only I can


Actually my name is Wally
And I push a trolley
Full of all my junk
It’s easier to push than a trunk


I sleep in the day 
And wander at night
It makes it less likely 
I’ll be stabbed by a knife


I got no shoes 
And I got the blues
I play the banjo 
And I love to snooze


I once walked five days straight
And saw an Indian rat snake
I did a double take and then ate a steak
But it was all a dream I realized when I did awake


My eyes will pierce you like a dagger
And my banjo will make you dance like Jagger


My coat is fantastic 
And my songs are bombastic
Some say I’m an iconoclastic 
Others say I’m just enthusiastic


I’m a mystery man
See me once
And you’ll never see me again
I am the super bombastic beanie man

See you next time

The One Armed Sushi Chef otherwise known as the Beard Man Wearing Headband with Anchor on it

The One Armed Sushi Chef

He has a beard
And a headband too
His anchor is geared
For wowing you

He’s a sushi chef
Of the highest order
His name is Jeff
He abhors disorder

He’s the fastest slicer
In the land
He doesn’t use a ricer
He has one hand

He’s an Iron Chef
On that SBS cooking show
He killed the ref
With one blow

The decision was wrong
Or so he thought
And because he didn’t win
He killed the lot

You’ll find him now
In his little sushi shop
Forget to pay the bill
And you’ll get the chop

See you next time

Beardo the Weirdo

Here is Beardo the Weirdo. 
He is a zombie. 
My good friend Stuart wrote a poem to accompany the picture. 
We hope you enjoy.

Mutant Cowboy Zombie

The Tale of the Mutant Cowboy Zombie


After the heist on the bank
They shot old hank
Left him to die and stole his take
Only he didn’t die
He turned into a pie
The sun baked him good
Like only the sun could
His flavor was chicken and curry
But he was in no hurry
Got bit by some a freaky  wolves
Turned into a mutant with big hoofs
He galloped around
Then a flood came and he nearly drowned
But he gained the power of ten thousand suns
And set off to track down those bums
Those double crossing cowards
Weazly pickers of flowers
He found them in the saloon of a desert town
Drunk as skunks and acting the clown
They had looks of fear
When they saw his mutant lear
And his disfigurement ever so severe
His chicken curry skin glistened in the light 
As he reached for his shooter with his hand on the right
His aim was perfect and shot them all three
With but one bullet that buzzed like a bee
After that he took a drink
And sat down for little think
What kind of life is this for a mutant freak
With a chicken curry face and hooves for feet
So he joined the circus and he was a success
The moral of the story is to be your freakiest best
The End

Zombie with New York Yankee Baseball Cap

This is a zombie that I drew with artline pen and highlighter texters.
I wrote a poem to accompany the picture.

He’s got a hat
A New York Yankees hat
He wears it forward and not back
They called him the home run king
When he hit the ball he gave it real zing
But now he’s all washed up
Got busted for throwing a game for a coupla bucks
Now he spends his days on the streets
Selling hot dogs and similar meats
Although it might not appear the case
He’s doing well, he’s in some good head space
He’s in touch with his true self
He’s wearing his real face
He kicked the habit and the hangers on
Got some real friends who won’t do him wrong
He’s found himself, he’s been restored
He’s a zombie on the move forward

See you next time

Tough guy bearded man wearing beanie folding his arms

This is an example of the art which will be in my upcoming art show Longbeard’s Anonymous Monkey Factory.
This is an example of a person who does not do little twirls like a ballerina.

Here is a poem.

He sports a mean beard
And a look to be feared
A beanie sits a top his head
Don’t cross this man or he’ll make you dead
With arms crossed and gaze intent
He aint no friendly gent
His body language tells me this
So don’t be expecting no sloppy kiss

The End

See you next time- Mulga

Magical Diamond Froggy

This is a bedazzled frog.
He is found on the ground in the vicinity of diamond mines.
As a result of his environment he is all diamondy and glittery and magical and sparkles in the sun like Edward the magical vampire.
Go team Edward!
Here is a poem about the magical sparkly diamond frog.

The magical sparkly diamond frog
He is a frog that doesn’t hide in a log
He sits in the sun and sings his song
He is pretty to view
With a diamond or three
Upon his skin for all the swamp to see
He is a girls best friend and his name is Ben
He would look good on a ring, he sure is a gem

See you next time.

Zombie Getting Kicked in the Goonies

This is the first highlighter zombie I drew.
He doesn’t look to happy.
It looks like he just took a swift one to the goonies.
Poor zombie fella!
Here’s a poem about his predicament.

An ode to the goonie kicked zombie

Getting kicked in the goonies aint much fun
Even when your a zombie on the run
The pain can make a tough zombie cry
He’ll double over in pain and want to die
He knows that feeling because he’s the undead
Or maybe not if there’s no brains left in his head

See you next time.

I am the captain of this ship

A Pirate’s Poem

I shall make thee walk the plank
With hands bound ye shall sink
Mutiny I shall not permit
I am the captain of this ship

Purple hairy frogman and his guitar

This is the purple hairy frogman playing guitar.
He also wears a fantastic headband which has 4 stars on it. They are white on a red background.
He wears a lovely pair of shoes which he buffs to a splendid polish every day. He can see his own reflection in them when he looks down.
He takes pride in his appearance and why shouldn’t he, he is a unique character and is the best dressed creature in his local swamp.His dapper appearance is what separates him from all the other creatures in his local ecosystem.
He has 3 female admirers of which he has no interest in. That’s just the way it is sometimes.Maybe he just likes the thrill of the chase.
His nipples are cross shapes which is unique to him and the green hairy scary frogman who holds an umbrella. The green hairy scary frogman can be found in a prior post of mine. Check out one of his arms. It is unusually longer then the other. Nature is a funny thing.
See you next time.

Fat Cat Zombie

This guy likes eating caviar and baby cats. He is the guy the Occupy Wall Street campers don’t like. He is the 1%.  He has dollars and he wants more. He has power and power gets you want you want. Shame on you fat cat zombie.
See you next time.

Zombie with Mo-Hawk

Here’s a flouro zombie. He was made with highlighter and artline felt tip pen.
He has a mo-hawk and he is looking out of frame at something of which i am not sure.
It seems to be of interest to this particular zombie as he seems to be going ‘oooh’ or maybe even whistling.
Maybe he saw a hot zombie babe and he is performing the classic fox whistle.
See you next time.
