Monster Tournament


Everybody's favorite March madness event!


The Monster Tournament was created in 2021 as a nonsensical diversion during March and as an excuse for me to draw dramatic and emotional food creatures. 

Sixteen moody foods make up the contenders, and participants try to predict which ones will win each match in a single-elimination style tournament.

Winners are determined by popular vote on Instagram stories, sometimes with surprising results. These are the only kinds of upsets that are fun.



Below are the contenders for the 2023 Monster Tournament. You can save the images to your computer and print them, or download the zipped file which includes instructions. You can also draw your brackets by hand if that's your thing.

Please send your completed brackets to me by MARCH 5 to be included in the contest to win a fishcakes goodie bag. Finished brackets can be sent to with the subject title Monster Tournament 2023.

Click on COMBATIVE CUCUMBER to download a zipped file that includes the 2023 contenders, a blank brackets sheet, and instructions.

Top 5 highest scores WIN a fishcakes goodie bag. In the case of a tie, I'll randomly choose five winners from the tied entries. 

Not on Instagram?

That's OK!  You can still enter to win.  Fill out your brackets, submit them, and check on this page for daily updates as the tournament progresses.
