Beware the Pogonip!

Beware the Pogonip

I grew up in Maine, and my grandfather always farmed using his Old Farmer’s Almanac as a resource. Every winter the almanac warns: Beware the Pogonip. I remember not knowing what Pogonip was, so my young imagination came up with some sort of winter beast that preyed on small unsuspecting Maine kids. Later on I found the definition of the Native American word Pogonip, which is a frozen fog that injures the lungs when breathed in. If you have ever shoveled a snowy driveway, breathing heavily in the below zero temperatures, you know the feeling. Without protection from a scarf, one can really hurt their lungs breathing the cold air for extended periods. I thought it would be fun to personify my childhood fears of the Pogonip into a kaiju character resin toy. Pogonip monsters have reach. Some have two arms, some have four. Available soon in various hand cast resin colorways in the JEMTOY shop. This winter remember to stay warm, and be cool, but most of all Beware the Pogonip!

Weird Critters of Washington Pond

Swamp Bogger, Philly Lou Bird, Yupapotamus in Maine

My family and I drove across country from California to Maine, and now Swamp Bogger, Philly Lou Bird, and Yupapotamus are home at Washington Pond, Maine. This is the lake I grew up on, listening to my grandfather’s old logging tales about these weird critters. Many of the old timers here know stories about these critters, and it’s fun to see the enthusiasm they have in telling them. We’re staying at my Dad’s house, looking for a home of our own somewhere in the area. I’ll keep you posted. Jay~
