Did this one a while quite a while ago. Back when I was in my early twenties…

(Oh crap I’m getting old.)

Who are the monsters? Why are they swimming on a faraway planet with a pot bellied little boy? Why did I feel the need to use so much marker on this piece?

I don’t have the answers to any of that…sorry.

Deal with it.

    Superb. Your marker pen art is Fantastic, this is Awwwwwesome!!!!!!!!. Your characters are brilliance

  • Thanks Pinky! I appreciate it! Though, in all honestly, a large pink blob with red spots is hardly what I might consider to be “brilliant.” ;)

  • Many people don’t love chubby kids with outies. Tust me…it’s the reason I never got any dates growing up. ;)

    Very cute If I had seen stuff like this i would not have feared the " monsters" my mean uncles always told me were lurking in the dark lol.

  • Wow…ummm…no offense, but your uncles sound like, well…jerks. ;) Seriously though, thanks!

    ….love the pot belly, and the sticky-outy belly button (or is it a hernia)? lol
    ….i’d get a hernia jumpin’ into a pool fulla possibly unfriendly monsters too!!
    ….ps love your starry sky :D

  • I never considered the possibility that it could be a hernia. Hmmm…adds a whole other level to the piece. ;)

    See…THIS is why I won’t skinny dip on Pluto.

    I really like this. You do such great expressions on all your “folks”. People AND monsters.

    I need markers like yours…tho I do dearly love my Sharpies….

  • Oh, so THIS is why you don’t skinny dip on Pluto. Okey dokey…sure…yep…I understand now…THIS is the reason. ;)
