Here’s the second of my little monsters inspired by the amazing pencil sculptures of Jennifer Maestre. This one makes me think of what might happen if one of Lovecraft’s Moon Beasts got an angora sweater, which is disturbing on a whole different level. Perhaps instead the toothy worm-creature gains mobility by hosting the fuzzy-legged symbiote on its back.
Happy Independence Day, indeed!

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.
