Okay, look. We are realistic here at Cryptomundo. Hardly anyone is going to be online reading about Bigfoot or cryptids today. There’s a super game on Sunday, and if you don’t watch the football, you probably are tuning in for the ads. Are any cryptozoological? More about that tomorrow.
But, if you want to have some fun on February 5th, challenge yourself, and see if you can name the individuals appearing in the following Andy Finkle paintings. Most of the people are Bigfooters. That’s the only clue.
I’ve assigned them numbers so you can give your answers in the comments, using those indicators. Place your guesses in the section, below, before looking online for hints or visiting Finkle’s website for hints. Comments will be posted after the football game to give as many people the chance to register your speculations without someone else giving away all the answers. By the end of the day, I will reveal all the correct answers, if the right ones don’t show up.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.
