Cryptid by Tom Godfrey

Currently unavailable for purchase

An ancient of the deep. Friendly and highly intelligent, these beings were responsible for some of the earliest genetic engineering experiments, which resulted in a creature we now call, human.

Of course, after that mistake, they perfected their craft a little more. The next crop are due sometime in 2012. Sleep well :)

My artwork ranges from the traditional, to the slightly offbeat.

With the wildlife and landscape, paintings, I like a more photo-realistic approach, with light, colour, emotion and a sense of space, being key components.

My cartoons are a little quirky, with themes and styles varying according to mood.

    What is it – I love Cryptid clues? For Gord’s sake don’t clone any more. But on the other hand I’d say that some humans arn’t as cute at this protoype. Just wondering if this is an iPad job or that old fashioned sticky paint. Whichever, a great creation Tom.

  • Ha ha – Master of the punny world. You never disappoint. Thanks for another verbal gem, Brian. I love your mind. Total iPad creation using the Sketch Club App – no pencil concept, just a line taken for a walk. I added a blue crackle photo overlay, also on the iPad. The only editing on my iMac, was a resize -they do come out a little small from the iPad.
