One of my favorite things to create is a child with a horrible monster. What I really try to get at with images like this is contrast: innocent with ghastly. But I always like to throw a twist on it...is the monster REALLY the ghastly one? I really like when the viewer participates, as I love hearing things that I never intended for the piece, it gives me ideas for new ones;)

Very different, I enjoy this very much. The different textures in this catch my eye.
One could write a novel around this drawing. Well done and favorite for this humble viewer.

Congratulations on your sale, Alex. I'll have to look at some more of your work! I don't get a 'ghastly' feeling from this at all. More like "Puff the Magic Dragon" - the child is perfectly at ease talking with his new friend. Liked
Congrats on your sale!
Very cool! Excellent monster!
Yes, any young child that can climb to the top of a precarious rooftop could be a force to be reckoned with! The monster looks a little beaten down by life (or perhaps he just has bad posture due to his particular musculature?), so it's not too much to imagine that the child is capable of getting the better of him. Love this imaginative image that puts the viewer in the position of creating a story, which is always fun! f/v
Alex, you have created a real ambivalence in this. Maybe the monster is benevolent? Maybe the child can blow him to pieces by pressing a button? Because I love happy endings, I'll imagine them playing together and having a great friendship. :-)) v/f Patricia.
