I had to return here, again. Seriously; i can't get enough of this image! It's been my desktop background for forever now! I love EVERYTHING about this piece... The colors, the way the monsters are drawn. The way they're transparent, & how some of them are falling asleep or just looking bored, listening to the story, too. Especially love the one leaning over the book to the right of the book-reader. & just love the general atmosphere about this entire image... It's dark & trippy & a little frightening, YET SO CHARMING. The sweet, delighted expression the child has is fantastic. I love how there are pictures she drew off to the right, how they're drawings of monsters... Perhaps some that she's met before.
I really, really really REALLY wish this were available as a print. I'd buy a HUGE one for my wall & swoon over it far too much. This image really sums me up in some ways & it's just magical. Thanks for sharing your talents with us! Amazing work!
