Illustration friday: Trick or Treat



I don't know about you but i'd rather the monster lurking under my bed treat me to a bedtime story than chop off my feet when they are sticking out from under the covers. Admit it, even now as an adult you still have those childhood fears --- heehee....

I really hate it when they silently wait for just one of your body parts to slip from under the covers and flop over the edge of the bed.....then your subconscious ear pricks up as their lips curl with delight upon seeing your easy pickins exposed.

Ahh good memories. Great piece.
Boofully yours,
Sean

Wonderful style. I like your monster reading to the child. Monsters today must be kinder and gentler than they used to be. Must be a Monsters Inc. thing.

PS Thanks for visiting.
