Dark Sea

The sea doesn't belong just to monsters!

The sea doesn’t belong just to monsters!

You can’t draw monsters without doing something with them. I personally sometimes despair that I can’t make things as scary as they are to me.

But anyways: the green thing on the left is a creature of many eyes, your average nightmare. The oozing things on the bottom are The Hungry, which gather and feed on the unwary.

Fun stuff.

Violent Verdicts

Not for kids. Except for Pirate. And Knight.

About genres. I call Pirate’s Story a Young Adult story, but there are heavier themes inside of it. And nicer things, but who cares about them?

My point is: I chose Young Adult because I feel Middle Grade might be too young for some of the themes. Well, then again, I do remember reading GRENDEL by John Gardner when I was fifteen. Maybe not the best idea.

Halloween Night

Sometimes I wonder whether monsters dress up as people on Halloween. How do we know each costumed person we see at the end of the street is really human and/or alive? Oh well. I hope you’re all eating candy and having a great Halloween! (Also, drawing desktop backgrounds is really hard. Just saying.)

Sometimes everything is just as it seems.

Slender Man Origins – Peer Pressure

And now, my final theory on the origin of mass murderers — peer pressure! If everyone else killed people, would you do it too? I sure hope not, but it’s a good theory! I feel like this could be a 90’s style PSA about bullying. Also, the Balloon Man reappears since this is technically a flashback!

Following the crowd isn't cool, Slender Man!

Old Frenemy

I bet you completely forgot the Slender Man used to be on this blog. Looking back, I’m not sure how but the tale of the famous urban internet legend and Pirate have become intertwined in some weird way. Are they friends? Maybe. Enemies? Definitely. But they have a history and neither one has died yet. Maybe he’ll be back in future pictures!

They have a complex history.
