Monster- Illustration Friday


"Though Harold couldn't quite put his finger on it. He knew; somehow, this was going to be a really bad day!"
"Spike was sure he heard the yelping of a small dog coming from the new neighbor's lawn. He surely hadn't expected THIS!!!"
Monster- Boy did I have a "devil" of a time getting these up. First I ran out of ink (so keep in mind these are raw drawings with no detail) then my computer would NOT let me upload them for two days! GRRRR...turned me into a monster trying to post for monster! LOL!!

My first intention was to do something with the "game" we play with our grandson called "Tickle Monster." People just aren't my forte' though.
So Then I thought i'll research and do something abstract...like the monster of Glamis (Glamis Castle, Scotland) but that turned out to be a deformed relative ghost of the Glamis family...not a good subject.

Then I thought the "Beast of Bodmin Moor" (Cornwall, England livestock terror)sounded like a neat subject. But that turned out to be a giant cat or panther. Nothing terribly interesting to draw there.
So here you have it.

The first one made me laugh - I love the whole setup and attitude of the thing! The second one is a little creepy, with Spike confronting mortality. Nice work!
