Illustration Friday - "Monster"


A friend of mine once told me how her sister buried her beloved stuffed bear, "Fudge", in the backyard of their childhood home and never went back for it. The story inspired this doodle which I did for a larf.

Update 03.27.06:
Thanks for all the comments, folks! I am really getting into this blog and all the back and forth is inspiring me to get busy and stay busy drawing.

Y'know, Fudge sounds a bit like Gir (Invader Zim, anyone?) in my head...

Wow, very scary story. One day papa bury my brother in the jungle. I wished he would come but he never come.

Now I am thinking this not bad thing - maybe I scare like lady in you nice picture?

Great pic! I've always sorta believed teddy bears were immortal...

Reminds me of that South Park X-mas episode, where Stan goes into the woods and finds a clan of cute satan-worshipping woodsy animals. :)

Ha! This zombie teddy is scary funny! Reminds me of the reworked toys next door in Toy Story. Maybe this teddy is just misunderstood, and needs a hug. :P

This is really funny. You should draw a sequel to the Velveteen Rabbit about his return for vengence as a zombie. F
