The Mayans knew him as Aj ch’ul xiu, the holy plant man. The distant residents of Andromeda call him ǯɮɯϣϖѭӝ. it is rumored that the Vegenaut was created when, in a fit of directionless anger, the god Chaahk unleashed a deluge of rain and lightning upon a radish field in Central America, the divine energy in his thunderbolts causing 12 of the vegetables to grow into huge, deformed, intelligent, ambulatory pieces of produce. Vegenaut is the only surviving member of the “Holy 12” as they were called, the rest dying from respiratory complications and/or ritual suicide. Today, Vegenaut is the world’s foremost hyperdimensional macaroni noodle artist, Nick Dolan. Geologist by day and artist by night, Nick has been creating both visual and musical art for the past 14 years. Vegenaut’s visual art is an evolution of the bizarre and compulsive doodling he’s been doing since his preteen years. Much of this art is available for coloring in the Vegebook series of coloring books, which can be previewed and purchased on Amazon.
