Today my Monster Artwork has gone up for auction to benefit Comic Relief : Red Nose Day. Please head over to ebay and start a bidding war to benefit the cause. JamWah asked me if I'd be interested in drawing a monster to help out with the charity. I was not only happy to ask, but even more happy to deliver an 11"x17" ink drawing on bristol paper to them to post for the auction. I'm hoping to raise some money with the piece. If you are interested, please stop by the ebay page and put in a bid. I am a U.S. citizen, so don't let the fact that you are bidding in pounds throw you off. Anyone can bid on it. You don't have to be in the UK. BID BID BID!
I've been asking fans for ideas through my facebook and twitter pages. Since I've had a lot of time to draw what I want lately, I thought it would be a fun exercise to use ideas from various people and create an illustration. One of my friends suggested a "Cthulhu Robot." This is what I came up with. Not really at all what he asked for, but it was sure fun drawing it. I know. You're asking where the gnome came from? I was trying to think of something very different from the main character. I had known that I wanted something flowing by. My original concept was an image that popped into my head when I read the words from the email. I envisioned a man in a suit with a Cthulhu head in a room filling with liquid. That's it. Why? I'm not sure. Some sort of subconscious impending doom? Probably. Either way, I think this is a fun piece to add to my 2011 art book. What do you think?
