Pencil Monster #1
Saturday, July 3rd, 2010
I’m concluding the week of monsters with a pair of sketches (#2 will go up tomorrow) inspired by the amazing pencil sculptures of Jennifer Maestre. This one was specifically inspired by the piece “Chimera,” not an exact match but a little doodled monster of similar lineage. I think it came out with a distinctly Lovecraftian feel, especially once the mouth became an eye and the eyelashes became tentacles. It’s another piece out of my tiny bedside sketchbook, so the original is only a few inches high.
