My submission for IF's Scary is an excerpt from my cover sketch process of Creepy Monsters Sleepy Monsters, written by Jane Yolen. Because the finished painting is so iconic after its completion, I easily forget all of the brainstorming and thumbnailing it took to get to that point. Sometimes, I look back at rejected sketches and think... that could have worked nicely. Hmmm. All of my sketches are still kept in physical form, deep inside some drawer in the studio. Although, I am thankful for organized digital files that can be quickly called up for service.
These tiny monsters are so scary... but the older of the two certainly does like to give his sibling the heebeegeebees!
ps.) You can see the book's old working title above!
