Witch monster scares you most?
This is a doodle from my IPhone’s digital sketch book called, ‘Tiny Pink Sketchbook’, made with Paper 53. I doodle anytime I get a minute, most sketches are connected to the part of my brain that I can’t always talk too, until it draws me a picture. Lots of artist have verbalized this in different ways… enjoy.
The witch makes me wonder what makes them frightening? She has no claws, teeth, fur, muscles, or slim which makes her the most interesting monster. Drawn as ugly green women to make us shrink in our theater chair but looking closer she is now my favorite classic monsters depicted reading books. Smart girls make folks run in fear?
The werewolf haunts the countryside unable to find home. Between the villages and the trees family on both sides of the divide, but unable to join.
Lots of stories about the werewolf as a way to understand the natural world. Other stories of a rabid animal who wants to destroy the world.
Next monster is Frankenstein’s creation, making something that can’t be predicted. Who will be the lucky one, the survivors.
There is a lot to take apart, like why is a reanimated biological entity scary? Why do we fear it?
The Dracula, a force of mystery and seduction. It’s a undead force with a cunning mind, that plots and is vengeful. It is the teeth that we associate with power, a vehicle for the blood that it needs.
