The Unwanted Pet by Edzie

Currently unavailable for purchase



No one likes my monster, but maybe that’s because I’m the only one who knows how to keep him quiet and out of trouble. He does take a bit of effort keeping him happy as he is rather demanding, but he is good to me. I think it’s a “he”. He doesn’t eat much, the occaisional sheep or calf. He doesn’t eat people like the townsfolk say he does…..except for little Luke Tanner. But no one has asked after that little troublemaker……..

This started out as a sepia charcoal drawing, but as I worked it the colours just crept in! Yep, I know there’s lots wrong with it, but it was fun to do.

Soft pastels and coloured charcoals on A3 canson paper.

    That is so cooool! Scary yet cute all at once… wow! Does he eat small annoying yappy dogs? Or do they give him hairballs? (And you signed it too, well done!) Great work mate :D

  • Small yappy dogs are considered h’ors douves (spelling?) so long as owners dont miss them….the sudden silence is a bit telling. Yap! Yap! Yap! Yap! Yap! Yap! Yap! Yap! Yap! Yap! Yap! Yap! Yap!

    I agree with Virgosun’s comments. It’s an evocative piece of art.

  • Thank you Charles! So glad it stirs some emotions. Such a surprise for something that just “fell out of the pastel box”!
