So Cute, Just great!

FrankenBarry said...

Another excellent piece! The colors are really vibrant on the black bg. At first glance it almost looked like embroidery, but I probably just need new glasses. I really like the little red monster... hope he never needs glasses.

I have been there myself - Fun rendering, is that a Lane Smith book he's reading?

Heather said...

I thought he was climbing out of the book to get away from the monsters!

Well the monsters and Jacob are adorable!

I found you through Tessa's blog list. Was this piece for IF? The theme last week was climbing, and this would have been a great entry for the challenge. Love it! Mind if I follow your blog?

There are no better places to be lost. It’s the only place to fight monsters and creatures but still be there for supper.
Another fantastic piece, you are a true inspiration!

Awesome! This is a terrific illustration. The monsters are great and the design.
