I always have had a fascination with monsters. Monsters allow an illustrator to use their imagination and design skills with an undiminished intensity. They can be whimsical or utterly terrifying; they have a wide range of possibilities. This sketch is one in a series I did for a friend’s project. When I was drawing this monster, I imagined it could squirt poison out of it’s eyes, kind of like the Regal Horned Lizard that squirts blood out of its eye to scare predators.
