This is so weird. I love it. I really like your 'blue' offering as well. Paul and Babe were my favorites as a kid.

Fantastic pic this week - its got a great storybook feel to it...can't stop looking at it! Like the neutral tones alot too! Nice work!

Christine Lim Simpson said...

Cool! What a surprise! I love the use of just one colour. Powerful. :)

Queen Tut said...

Great monster and very cute little girl!

It's really really good!

LOL! Love everything about this!

OK, really now... which one of them is in for the bigger surprise? Little girls who carry teddy bears around everywhere they go can be relentlesly affectionate to the point of anoying those who are bent on destruction.

This is great! I love the evil expression on the monster's face (and the happily clueless smile on the little girl). Good, dark humor here.

Tony Sarrecchia said...

LOL...I can't wait to see the look on her face. Great job!

Ellen said...

kay susan said...

OOOoooowh! That's nasty!

Excellent illo.

Courtney said...

The earth-y monster is great, looks like he just rose from the ground. Great contrast between his body and his sharp, razor teeth and naughty look. Did I mention that the detail rocks?
