Now let me give you a bit of history with me and monsters. About 2 years ago I discovered a wonderful illustrative treasure called Sketchtravel. It has illustrations from over 70 artists from the world over. It is a great book and truly an inspiration to me. And the proceeds went to a good cause! If you get a chance pick it up!
In Sketchtravel I discovered an artist whose work I fell in love with….Michael Knapp. As I pursued his web site, which can be found at www.michaelknapp.com , I found the greatest illustration of a monster that he had done. This little monster inspired me to do one of my own. I used several references to develop my monster monster including a cupcake recipe, my kids imaginations and my dog's tongue to create my "creature". Hope you like him!
