Jez Tuya said...

Zach Hartlage said...

Does Ludo from Labyrinth count? Either him or Fozzy Bear =)

Oliver. said...

Hi Cory, my favorite Henson character is Gonzo. Best wishes!

Nat said...

Ah cool. Would love to get this, though I am highly raffle-unlucky... Lets see how it turns out this time :)

Ted Terranova said...

Sweet contest. Favorite character is SkekSil from the dark crystal.

Corey said...

Hi Cory, I'm a big fan of your work. Beaker would have to be my favorite.

Kat said...

While I love and quote the Swedish Chef, I'm going to have to say that Beaker is my favoite muppet.

Steven said...

Heya Cory, Ralph the Dog all the way. :)

Z-Kids said...

Am I capable of limiting myself to a single favorite muppet? I'll pick good ol' Wembley today.

Great looking work Cory!

Statler & Waldorf... They both count as one Jim Henson character since you can't have one without the other. (Loved the Fraggles growing-up & I love your work with them! Well Done!)

The Mason said...

Fozzy or Waldo. Is Waldo still around even? I'm not up to date on my Muppets canon.

Tyler Parker said...

Oh man so hard to say, probably either rowlf the dog or gonzo, but I have a special place in my heart for fozie too.

N.Hall said...

Aloysius Snuffleupagus!! Haha or Grover ;)

Paige Connelly said...

can't wait to see the published book

DH. said...

Boober! So great!

Oh wait - I have gobs of favorite Henson characters, but from the Muppet Show, I always loved Rowlf - especially the punning doctor scenes.

hill said...

I never win anything, but here goes nothing! I have some sketches you did for me in college. You misspelled my name. :) I ran across a picture of me and Justin waiting in the ER while your shoulder was located. As horrible as it was for you, I will never ever forget that day. I love your stuff, and maybe someday I will be able to afford it. Much love to Erin!

Mike Boldt said...

You rock the Fraggles Cory!

How can one choose a single favorite. Gonzo for now...

Daniel said...

Great giveaway Cory! It's really hard to single out a favorite character, but I'd have to say Animal.

Uncle Travelling Matt said: "The magic is always there, as long as we keep looking for it... "

Seth said...

Trashheap FTW!

Rasoul Hudda said...

Wow cool prize! My favourite Henson character is Gonzo because he's kinda weird looking and I can relate!

Ste Hitchen said...

oh wow, what a prize! My fave is Goober, the La Choy Dragon is also pretty great

Christine said...

My favourite would have to be Beaker :-)

Line Lorna said...

Love your work! And I LOVE Jim Henson and all he has contributed to our imaginations. Can I choose a favorite film instead, where he has contributed? Because I have seen the Labyrinth about a million and then some times (I love Ludo!). Also the Swedish chef makes me laugh myself silly.

Again, your work is amazing, and many of your prints are adorning my living room. Thank you for sharing stuff on this blog, and awesome give away x x x x

tribak said...

I want this so badly.

Sing said...

Please be me!

DavidM said...

Woo Hoo! Corey Godbey! Woo Hoo! Fraggles! Can't go wrong :). Great work Corey!

The Watcher said...

I don't know that I can pick just one! At the moment though I'll go with Hoggle from labyrinth.

Ruth said...

wow, thats amazing! I love your work and this is no exception. Keep it up, you are so inspiring!

Anonymous said...

Awesome, awesome, awesome!

masire said...

Fantastic Cory! Looks great, as usual!

KaleFamily said...

My 2-year-old just discovered "Fwaggles," and she's a big fan of your work. She'd love to have some more!

uniformgrey said...

My fav Jim Henson character is Sgt. Floyd Pepper - when it comes to Fraggles, Boober is in the lead =)

Though I have to say it's hard to pick just one!

Juan Bauty said...

OMG, i WANT this book!! where i can buy it?

Blythe Russo said...

You are too awesome! Fraggle Rock was one of my favorite shows as a kid - I loved Sprocket :D

Daniel said...

Hmmm...I'd have to say Statler and Waldorf. I count them as one person

Matthew Cook said...

I love Rowlf.

Nicole said...

I have to say The Swedish Chef...sometimes you just have to go into Swedish Chef talk mode. Amazing job Cory!

Matt said...

Gonzo. He made me feel normal.

davidleonard.com said...

statler, not waldorf... He has been TOO mean to me.

Kenan G Swaim said...

I grew up with the Fraggles and your style suites them to a tee. It's almost as if they were made for you to draw. Simply gorgeous illustrations. I'll be looking for this book regardless if I win or not.

Anand Friesen said...

Does Mr. Bimble count?

Grace Pennington said...

Jim Henson will forever be a classic. I'm a huge fan of the Muppets as they were a strong part of society when I was growing up!

Wonderful job on the book, and can't wait for it to come out!

Will Kelly said...

Hey Cory!
My favorite Henson character(s) would be Dr. Teeth & the Electric Mayhem (they count as one character, right?).

My favorite Fraggle Rock character would be Boober. He's so superstitious & pessimistic:)

Thanks for counting me in on the giveaway!
-Will

Stephen said...

Awesome!

Red Herring Jeff said...

Awe Geeze! I have to pick just one, huh? Ernie's great, but I think that Hoggle's personal journey resonates more.

Anonymous said...

Ooh...a favorite by Jim Henson? I'm not sure I can pick just one. I do like Aughra from the Dark Crystal. But there are so many others, too!

What a fun giveaway!

Thanks, Cory!

Brad M said...

Gobo. Most certainly Gobo.

Nick said...

Hey, man. I love your work and this book looks gorgeous. My favorite Muppet is one of the newer ones: Pepe the King Prawn. "I'm not a shrimp, okay." He did this documentary on the Weezer video they did a few years back, it was hilarious. You need to check it out.

Charlie Chang said...

Awesome, I love it.

Aedan Peterson said...

My favorite character would definitely be the Swedish Chef. Especially when he makes doughnuts.

dwilson said...

I remember watching this show with my family at nights. Some great memories so thanks for sharing this regardless of whether I get it or not.

The most impactful work he did, for me, was the Skeksis from Dark Crystal and Frank Oz as Olgra.

Man I love those!

Adam M Botsford said...

I'm not sure which I'm more excited about. The chance at winning Fraggle art, or that so many people are just as excited as I am. As a long time Jim Henson adorer I'd like to send out a digital high-five to all of the other awesome fans on here!

You all rock!

-Adam

Brit said...

fozzy. definitely fozzy.

can't wait for my signed copy!

Stacy LeFevre said...

Awe fantastic work! The doodle almost looks like it belongs on the cover page, awesome! As for my favorite character... The Yip Yip Martians! They were and still are my absolute favorite Muppets.

beyondtheautumns said...

Love it!! Favorite Henson character has to be Mahna Mahna.

Justin Smith said...

Animal for his drumming and lack of any inhibitions.

Stacie said...

I liker Beaker, but the Bean Bunny is so adorable too.

Ehren said...

Tough choice, but I think I'll go with Sam the Eagle. Especially the skit where Rowlf convinces him to sing Gilbert and Sullivan.

Luke said...

Beautiful artwork! Love seeing your pencils. Anyway... favorite Henson character? That's impossible. Let's just say the La Choy Dragon and let that spill into all others who came after. Cantus the Minstrel was always way cool to me too.

scortes said...

Rowlf the dog is my favorite, he's so classy and talented - I feel a special connection to the fraggles (maybe because my friends always teased me about being a fraggle for some reason - not sure why??) - love your work and thanks!!

Carrie said...

I can't pick a favorite! If I have to choose, I supposed I'd pick Yoda. He's so beautiful.

But I did have a crush on Grover as a child.

lunavalse said...

I also can't pick a favorite. Everytime I read another name I think, "Oh, that's my favorite!" Perhaps Cookie Monster. I would love to eat cookies like that. Or Gonzo 'cause he was a big weirdo.

Kt Shy said...

Lovely! And my favouriiiite... I dunno I really like Kermit, is that cliche to say? Kermit in the reporter outfit.

Hillary Kwiatek said...

Would love to win this for my Henson-crazy son. I think Uncle Traveling Matt is his favorite Fraggle but Honzo is his favorite Muppet.

menolly42 said...

I've always been a fan of Beaker.

Shirley said...

Hi Corey - wonderful giveaway - and fabulous work! Too many favorites..but as a child, Kermit was tops! : )

Emily Clarke said...

So Awesome! I always loved Janice from Electric Mayhem.

Cooper Davis said...

I love the swedish chef, because he's hilarious and talks nonsense.

morgond said...

Lovely work, Cory.

Paul said...

jalierrn said...

Kermit thee frog here... With fingers crossed! ;)

Tan said...

Gersh gurndy morn-dee burn-dee, burn-dee.... The Swedish chef of course :D

Gosh, brings back so many memories :)

diane Palumbo said...

oh I love the Swedish Cheg; just thinking of him makes me smile. My maiden name is Baker and I have over 200 chefs around my home, so the Swedish Chef is my partner in fun.

Ron Roseborough said...

I'll get an Oscar for the Grouchiest person if I don't win this book. You can Count on that Cookie.

nicholas said...

Fantastic Sir! What a great prize.

Jessi said...

Count me in!

JaJitsu said...

I love everything muppets!
Wembly was my favorite from fraggles, but Rowlf is my fav from the muppet show.

Ambs said...

Snuffy. Especially back when he was invisible or imaginary or something.

sky665 said...

Gotta love that Gonzo!

Nicolò Rigobello said...

It's all awesome, Cory. I would love an illustration of Beaker and Bunson Honeydew.

Christina Escamilla said...

Ms. Piggy, hands down :]

Jade Sheldon said...

So excited! Hope it will be in my hands soon!

Jeff C said...

As a kid, Fraggle Rock was one of those things that really sparked the imagination.

Kayley Provow said...

Rowlf the dog was always my favorite character!

Andrew Castaneda said...

Awesome! =D Looks great!
And my favorite Henson character is probably Rizzo the Rat. ;)

staralfur said...

Thank you for the contest. My favorite Henson's character is Fizzgig from Dark Crystal.

Bowman said...

Awesome. Favorite Fraggle is Wembley. So much so that we named one of our dogs just that.
