Monster Tea Party by AbigailLarson Monster Tea Party by AbigailLarson
This is based on a sketch I made about two years ago, and I've just now been feeling that nostalgic tug on my heart that makes me remember all the tea parties and mud pies of my childhood with the neighborhood monsters.
They came from under the bed, inside the closet, and the darkest crevices in the woods in the fading twilight of the last night of Summer, before I would abandon them for adulthood. Sometimes I think, or pretend, I can feel them snatch at my ankles as I'm getting out of bed, or watching me from the knots in trees as I walk by them... not altogether forgotten.

~

I used pencils, watercolors, and Photoshop to complete this piece.

Prints are available! Get them here: [link]

I enjoy how your style of art is perfect for a child's storybook but somewhat on the creepy side as well. Adore the smile of the winged creature.
