It Was A Graveyard Smash

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted an image here that isn’t a graphic for the THR newsletter or part of the daily 2020 Visions series, but to be fair, it’s been a long time since I’ve made one. Technically, this was made for a newsletter graphic — you’ll see eventually— and I also used it as the basis of a daily image, but I liked it enough to share the original, too. Have some monsters.

This was speedily drawn on a Friday morning ahead of the newsletter it was going to be used in; I’d created a graphic for a story the evening before at the end of a long day of writing and editing and calls, and I was exhausted; it wasn’t a good graphic, and I woke up the next day determined to do something better. That was channeled into this sketch, which was then screwed with in fake Photoshop, and another (better) graphic was indeed created. Hours later, I screwed with it some more for a 2020 Visions image here. But it all started with this image.
