Illustration Friday "Monster"


I thought that in monster society, they probably have portraits of their ancestors just like we do. I think this one might be from the early to mid-19th century. He's got little pointy teeth sticking out. They're too small to see well.
Its graphite and charcoal and was made for the wonderful Illustration Friday.

A fine Victorian painting. Didn't I see that painting in "Room with a View"? Or was is "Remains of the Day"?

This reminds me of a portrait that a friend has in her bedroom. Its very scary yet you can't help keep looking at it. Cool!

Thanks for visiting my site and finding Mo! You are the first one that actually found him :-)
