My Kraken T-shirts are here!

People have been asking me for T-shirts since I first appeared this summer….LOTS of people.    And the shirts are here!

Kraken T-Shirt
My River Monster T-shirts
were designed by Ethan Anderson of  They’re printed on super soft cotton.  And they’re fashion-fit which means they’ll instantly become your favorite shirt.   (Just like that one you lost on your deep-sea diving vacation:-)

Yes, I made them in kids sizes too!

Check them out here:  Kraken stuff

One more thing
As something special for the people who get here first, I’m giving away a FREE River Monster poster to the first 20 people who order T-shirts! Just because I can do what I want, and because I have 8 arms.

Show your support towards the legend that has captured the imagination of Muscatine, as well as the rest of the midwest.

Surprise Visit! Thursday, July 21 on Mulberry Avenue

Kraken tentacles on 1222 Mulberry Ave Muscatine Iowa

One day only!
(Thursday, July 21)

I would love to keep the location a mystery and make you hunt for me, but I’m going to just tell you the location….and then hold a contest for a cool prize!

Ok, ready?  Here’s where I am:

I’m making a surprise appearance at 1222 Mulberry Avenue. It’s the large yellow house right beside the Muscatine Art Center and Musser Museum.

I can’t wait to see the reaction from all the walkers and joggers who have no reason to suspect they’ll be confronted by a giant pink tentacled octopus:-)

Now for the contest
The other big news for today is that my River Monster T-shirts are here…and I’m giving one away!

Want to win a River Monster T-shirt?
I’ll give a free T-shirt to the first person to post a photo of me at 1222 Mulberry Avenue.   That’s it!

Just post it to my Facebook page.

You can also email it to me at

(And I’m always happy to see the photos you post on there – contest or no contest.  I guess everyone loves seeing pictures of them-self, even giant monsters)

Ok,  Good luck and happy photo snapping!

Drive by on Mulberry and wave hello!


P.S. Have you seen my River Monster T-shirts?

It’s the 4th of July weekend! And what do you do on this favorite holiday?  Cookouts!

So this Friday, July 1st,  I’ll be hanging out at Hy-Vee Drugtown’s weekend grill-out.

While BBQ ribs sound awfully tempting, especially ones catered by the Zarda Bro’s of Kansas City,  I’ll do my best to stick with my usual diet of building and roofing materials, stray joggers, and the occasional parked car:-)

I’ll only be here for a few days (I’ve got a parade to get ready for). Come see me while you can at my fifth spot in Muscatine!

Don’t say I didn’t warn you about the stray joggers though…mmm snacks…:-)
