Monsters, Monsters Everywhere…

Monsters, Monsters Everywhere...

So I’ve been on a somewhat specific drawing kick lately. I’ve been drawing monsters, monsters and more monsters. This is primarily the fault of the deviantart Cute Monster T-Shirt Design Battle, whose design deadline was this past Tuesday. I drew several monsters that I felt were cute, then narrowed down my choices and drew even more cute monsters based on my favourites. Each of them cropped up with distinct personalities, and I chose the ones that stood out most for me. In the end, I chose to make Stanley and his Wonderful Balloon my t-shirt design submission. However, I had all these other monster designs I was still reasonably happy with, so I did what I’ve done with most of my designs lately – I made it into a Spoonflower pattern. Even still, that wasn’t enough. After I’d inked my favourites in Illustrator for the Spoonflower swatch, I could still separate out and colour my favourite monsters. Soon, they will be added to my revamped and reorganized Cafepress shop, launching on Thursday. Until then, I thought I’d post these here. If you like Stanley and his Wonderful Balloon, please follow the link to deviantart to vote for the design (voting closes March 6).
