“Capture Creatures” is a year-long project to create 151 new creatures, much like the original Pokémon. Becky Dreistadt hand-paints them and her partner Frank Gibson comes up with their backstory. Currently, they’re on 130 and have a gallery show set for next month to show them all off. Take a look at some of the unique and adorable creatures to be had, and f you like what you see, check out their web comic, Tiny Kitten Teeth, and consider donating to their Kickstarter.
