Today’s drawing is a bit of a departure from my doodle monsters, and at first glance you might see nothing precious — my prompt word — about this fellow. But, look closely.
Here is my Exploding Brain Boy, and seriously, folks, what is more precious than the human brain?
I drew this weird boy on Monday morning while I worked at our HFAA Art Show as monitor. He was one of several weird monsters I created that morning, using ideas from the How to Make a Monster post I’d written earlier.
After that post appeared, fellow blogger “inknpaper85046788” made an interesting comment:
“Playing around with monsters is therapeutic. keeping the demons insides us is never okay. Better play with them and make them kind and harmless.”
That seemed like a good explanation for why I drew Exploding Brain Boy. Sometimes when life gets busy, I feel as though my brain is going to explode.
And now, in the interest of keeping Inktober educational, did you know that the average human brain weighs about 3 pounds? You’ll find that info — and more — at the following:
