Monster Stew!

When I was a wee lad, I used to draw monsters. A LOT of monsters. Monsters on napkins. Monsters on ruled paper. Monsters in coloring books. Monsters on the walls. So when I was asked to create a series of illustrations of well known monster arch types, I couldn't resist.

The book is called "Horrorscopes" and it's being published by Chronicle Books. I was asked to create twelve interior illustrations plus a border illustration that would be used throughout the book.

Kudos to Kristen Hewitt, the wonderful art director, for keeping everything cohesive, and reigning me in when I got too gory (which was often...).

Without any further ado, enjoy the monster stew!
